My sister called me yesterday. Thats really unheard of. Unless she needs me and, I like it when she does. I like it that even though she doesn't like me she knows that I love her and will do all that I can to take care of her. weird that she is my older sister. She really hates any mention of God or anything Christian. She is extremely influenced by her morman inlaws and so claims that she is a Christian. Anyway, she called me to "talk out' about what happened between her neighbor and herself. This neighbor is an elderly man whom my sister came to know because he had ponies. She purchased 2 of his ponies and learned a lot from him. In turn she helped with his wife until they put her in the nursing home. She shares meals with him and took care of him once when he was really sick - so sick in fact that he doesn' t remember any of it. (she did not have to do any "personal" cares during that time)...Fast forward to last Sunday>>>> he came over near supper time and talked to my BIL for a while. Julie told him to come in get a plate to take home. As she was getting it ready, he said "you do so much for me and you probably wont even let me hug you in thanks" Julie said "of course Mr B. (that's what she calls him)" Well he ran with it and as she put it "dry humped me for all he was worth". She freaked out, as only natural. He called the next day and aske dif she was mad at him. She wanted to get rid of him so she said "no" and told him she had to go so that she could hang up. Please don't be to judgemental about her saying that, It's harder than you'd imagine to be confronted with that sort of thing, she knows she should have told him he was inappropriate but she just was so upset she could only think of how to get him off the phone. He has tried to call her several times since adn she ignors the phone. He has come over 2 times but she doesn't go outside (she always had in the past) BIL and him talked and then he left both times. This man is in his 70's -80's age wise.

Praying the Peace of Jesus will surround your sister and that God will place someone in her path to help her reconcile what has happened and help lead her to Christ! I am so sorry she is dealing with this issue :( That is super hard and I will also be praying for Mr. B that his mind would clear totally and that he would offer a sincere apology. Praying!!

Have fun and be safe on your trip! I pray God's protection around you and that you guys receive a very unexpected blessing in the trip :)

I can understand her responding that way. I am very non confrontational myself, and know it can be hard to call somebody out on their behavior. I will be raying for your sister and the neighbor.

Prayers for safe travels for your family!

I've avoided an old family friend for almost 9 years because of his inappropriate behaviour. It didn't start until he became a widower and I was in college. I'm tempted to think that at a certain age it's hard for a man to control his impulses; but at the same time, I don't want to think that all older men are like that (and I also don't want Hubby to become like that someday! LOL).

I'll be praying for a safe and fun trip! We're taking the boys about the same length of drive next week and I must pack toys and books for the ride. Hopefully Ben won't sleep for most of it! (He's a short napper, otherwise he wakes really early.)

The trip went perfect!!! Sis is being closer to me so that's a blessing in itself and Jess, we're in 2ww so hopefully that blessing is now on it's way!!! (hey, we did our part, now it's up to God!) Thank you everyone! Becca, we ended up bringing the laptop and and used it to play a movie during the second 2 hours of the ride there. On the way back she didn't get upset at all! Thanks again everyone!!!
