In Court

Where we are: IN COURT

PLAINTIFF(Mr.Johnson): YOUNG BLACK STUDENT. AVERAGE HEIGHT. AVERAGE BUILD. AVERAGE LOOK. BRAIDS IN HAIR. ORANGE T-SHIRT

DEFENDANT: WHITE MIDDLE AGED WOMAN, STORE OWNER. HAIR IN PONY TAIL. SHORT.

The plaintiff brought the defendant to court for compensation on what he claimed to be a case of false arrest...also misidentification...blah blah blah...wants his criminal record expunged

The Judge now has to decide who's telling the truth.

*********************************************************

THE DEFENDANT: Your honor, I saw him come into my store, he shopped for a little bit and then all of a sudden he took off running with stuff under his shirt. So I called the police and identified who he was and that's that

THE PLAINTIFF: Your honor, Ive never been to this woman's store before. It's a case of mistaken identity. I was across the street visiting my cousin and all of a sudden the cops arrest me. I spent 30days in jail and have a criminal record now which is affecting my ability to get into grad school

THE DEFENDANT: Your honor, he's lying. It was him. I saw him with my own two eyes and even in the RollUp I identified him... in court I identified him. As a matter of fact your honor, I do believe it's the same Orange shirt he had on that day. His hair is braided down the same way it was that day

THE PLAINTIFF: Your honor, Im just a student, trying to make my way. Ive never even met this lady before and never been to her store. Im not even sure what she sells in that store. I was visiting my cousin across the street. This so so messed up.

JUDGE: Are you sure Ms.Plaintiff that this is the guy you saw on that day. It would be terrible to make an error

THE PLAINTIFF: Your honor Im very sure it was him...look at his hair...your honor Im telling you this is the same look he had that day. I cant believe he's coming here trying to lie his way out of this situation

JUDGE: I will be back with my decision


This is the EXACT scenario. Sure the words may not be verbatim...but it pretty much tells the story of what happened in court the other day. How's the Judge to decide who's telling the truth. Are we going to play the race card here? You can imagine the guy...really just an average looking guy...he had the "rap image" thing going... should we really believe him? and the woman...the ONLY witness. She confirmed it. It was her store...it was him. She saw him. Do we believe her?

I wondered what the Judge would do. Little did I know that this particular judge...would do something... infact... The judge... white handsome looking guy...tall...talks with a hint of a southern accent... might have something flavored in his background...like italian... or somn....his ruling ASTOUNDED me...

will be back later to share

On my heart...

WATCH THIS VIDEO FIRST


I watched this video and was reminded of the story of Esther in the bible. That's the ONE book I've read this year...many more to go..God help me. Im not sure what prompted me to read it. Maybe it's the fact that it's not that long... I do that sometimes... pick random stories in the bible. I have a Chicken Soup for the Soul bible which I love cuz it has life stories and it's also in plain english so Im better able to understand. My niece's name is Esther, she was born about two years ago...so so cute and I remember thinking I didnt really like that name because I thought it seemed so... not touche... Im one to talk right? since my own name is Favor.... anyways, I read the book of Esther and I was inspired by her story. What an honor it is to bear such a name. Esther became queen and thus saved her people...read the story for yourself HERE

and then recently I read Laspapi's blog entry BROKEN WALLS and I thought to myself what a good guy...his actions are certainly commendable and then I thought this is how everyone should be.... actions such as his should be common place... it should be weird when no one wants to help

Basically...to sum up my post...

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF ONE

I think of it this way: Sometimes it seems ur but one drop of water in an empty pail...but thinking about it...if everyone was or were to become a drop....eventually...one day... the pail would get full...and then it would start to overflow... then we can set up filling the next one...I dont know how else to put it. It may start out that you feel a bit lonely...being just that one drop...thinking...how will this work... insert thoughts of Nigeria here

I sometimes doubt myself. It's interesting that some people see a greatness in me that I sometimes dont see in myself. Why do I doubt me? I need to be brave like Esther a whole lot more... step out more on faith...take more risks....

My prayer for myself..and for you...is that I(you) be strategically placed...wherever God wants me to be. That God will order my steps and that all the other voices around me...all the distractions are silenced and removed.... so that God's voice and His word will come thru pure and clear and that I will be obedient to His instructions with no hesistation even when it doesnt make sense to me

never understimate the power of one

Jesus was ONE! that just occured to me actually
You can be too
I will be too
infact...i am ONE
so help me God

how's your day/week so far....
did u like the song?
It's by Nickelback - If everyone cared


in other news...all you prayer warriors should keep me in their prayers...I dont feel so well. Not sure what's wrong...sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe...not necessarily a good thing....but Im believing that all will be...all IS well with me
