Galatians 3:11 But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.”
Taken at Fernan Lake, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho 11 March 2021
It was a tense day and Mike has refused to talk to me about anything. I asked Mike if he realized he had put everything we have in jeopardy by taking the car at night after the doctor ordered him not to. I got no response. He just stared at me, turned around and walked away from me.
I made sure he got his meals and his meds, but I didn’t push the interaction with him, my arms still hurt from last night. Mike has reached a point where I am somewhat afraid of him now. I don’t know what’s going to set him off, and I don’t know how far his anger will take, or allow, him to go. I do know I don’t want to be on the receiving end of the anger, but it looks like I’m not going to have a choice.
I didn’t call the police last night, I forgot I was supposed to do that if he got very aggressive or left with the car. I’m new to this type of action and reaction. But I do know I need to get the non-emergency police number added to my contacts list in my phone. Do they do a 51/50 hold in Idaho? I don’t know the rules here like I knew them in California, and it’s something I need to find out. I lived in California for 42 years and Mike was a firefighter, so I knew a lot, because Mike would tell me about stuff. Now, I am slowly feeling my way through this maze, to learn what I need to have available for assistance, in the event of another altercation.
So if you’re reading this, and you’re a praying person. Pray that I am able to get the answers I need, and the help I need. Pray that Mike will quit fighting me at every turn, on every issue, no matter how small! Pray for my safety.
