And he did

We arrived at the SSB.  Our "wonderful" neighbor had placed a metal rod across our cattle guard - blocking our entry and chained and locked our gate.  I so wish I had unlimited funds.  I would take him to court in a heartbeat.  I did send an email to the entire community, who were gearing up to man a booth at a local event.  They were having great difficulty finding people to work that booth - especially in this Texas heat.  I said there were going to be nine of us, and we could have come into town to help, but instead, we would be road building because of that moron's actions.

My BIL called to offer help to us., Yeah.  He and that man are fairly fast friends - if you can call it that.  They are, in reality, using one another.  BIL to get help on his place, and neighbor to keep his place in the community.

But with the help of my son, my SIL, and grandson we have our new road.  It is unfortunate though.  It goes right by my deceased SIL's house.  I really hate that, but her ex has been very generous about allowing it.

We will see

I am not one who wears their Christianity on my sleeve.  I don't usually talk about how, when and what I pray for, but I will right now.  I have been fervently praying for the ability to forgive that creature (not a good start I guess) that is next to the SSB.  Forgiveness is undoubtedly THE singular most difficult thing for me.  Do a (perceived at least) wrong, and I cannot get past it.

So to get to the point, we head out tomorrow.  Tomorrow is also the day he has threatened to begin to close off out access to our property.  I am nervous about what we will find.  Will he have already closed off out road - probably.  It would be just like him.

SIL will also be coming tomorrow, and son and his family will be there Friday.

We are going to work on the "new" road regardless.  It should be lots of "fun" working in high 90 degree temperatures. 

I really AM trying to be a good Christian here.  I really am trying to turn the cheek.  But it is so difficult.  I still hope karma will step in.  Can't help it.
