Scary…

We have a small group of friends that meet at our house twice a month for visiting, sharing, discussing, reading, talking, laughing, crying, praying, eating, snacking, laughing and did I say laughing?

Last evening, after a couple of hours had gone by, my phone rang. I went into the guest room to talk with my friend. While in there I noticed a light out in the driveway. I went back to the living room to see who had left…no one. I mentioned I saw a light. Then I went back into the bedroom and looked out again. The light suddenly went out. I was still on the phone with my friend. We hung up so I went back to the living room and reported what I’d seen. A couple of us went outside on the porch and he locked his car with his remote and of course his lights came on. We suddenly heard a sound! Someone was out there!  We have motion lights on our house but there were several cars in the driveway and this one was the last car in the line…too far away for the motion lights to come on.

I was nervous all night. I was awake most of the night. I kept my eyes on the windows so I’d see if the motion lights came on. They didn’t. I finally went to sleep well after midnight and woke up around five. I actually dreamed someone was breaking into our house! I got up but didn’t go downstairs, I didn’t want to turn any lights on. I stayed upstairs in the loft and told the Lord all about my fears and thanked Him for watching over us. Finally daylight came.

Now, today, I’ve been advised to call the sheriff and report it. They may have struck some other house as well as ours. They may come back again. If I report it, the sheriff’s deputy will be alert to any prowlers. So this saga continues…

All in the day and night of me…

    That IS scary. Was anything missing or damaged? Maybe you need some more lights? Be careful!

    • We haven’t found anything missing. I called the man whose car they’d gotten into and he said they checked really good and nothing was missing or damaged. I think we caught them right in the beginning of their job. I called and reported it so the sheriff’s department will be alert out here.
      We have motion lights on the front of our house, by the garage, by the back door and by our pole barn. I think we’re covered!

    Geeezz freaky!!! I would feel so violated 😦 It is good that you had guests there, if it would have been just you and your husband that would have been scary!!! Im glad you are all alright. Whoever did this took away a few things… they took away your sleep and your sense of safety! The nerve of people sometimes :/ xoxox hope you sleep better tonight, I love you!

    • Thanks Laura. It could have been a lot worse, We did feel violated but I think he was scared away before he did any other harm. After this we’ll be more diligent in keeping things locked up! I love you too! 🙂

    We have a driveway alarm that is wireless from Radio Shack. It will alert us to motion the lights may miss. We also have one inside our garage since we often keep our garage door open when it is warm…good luck, be safe
