The Gift of Freedom

Christmas week is always one of the busiest bail bonding weeks of the year. I can picture exactly how it goes down, wife looks at husband and says, “I want Johnny home for Christmas.”  Then a tear and that seals the deal. It is usually a bad idea to bring a rebellious addict home for the holidays, the bad medicine of incarceration and separation from loved ones is sometimes just the right potion to cause Johnnie to come to his senses…kind of like the prodigal son who came to his senses in the pig pen when he contemplated eating the fecal covered pig slop and he had an epiphany: “better to be a slave in my Fathers house than be here squandering my life with pigs.”  Posting your bail will get you out of jail, I can purchase your temporary freedom but freedom doesn’t mean your free. Jesus said “I am the way and the truth and the life.”   The way you should go, the truth you should know, and the life everlasting.  Find the truth and the truth will set you free…I don’t want to get preachy about Christmas, after all it’s a birthday party, we should celebrate but after 12 years of posting bonds for over 10,000 clients I can tell you that no one has ever permanently turned their life around without the transitional “come to Jesus” experience  resulting in the death of their flesh desire and the birth of their God desire. It goes like this: A Holy Spirit event that reveals to a person their true self, their brokenness, self-centered selfishness, depravity and an acute awareness how they have crushed the dear ones that loved them most, their Mom and Dad, wives, husbands, children and friends. It is a life changing event. You don’t yet know who Christ is but you no longer want to be the person you have become. It’s horrible, beautiful surrender. Dead to yourself, born again and alive in Christ. He saves you.  He offers, you accept. The Gift of Freedom.


National Assault Week

It happens every year like some kind of angry tradition, Brother Bill comes in to town to visit family for the holidays. Ohio is where he does his day to day but his Brother and Sister-in-law live in Virginia. They have been gracious enough to open their home to there beloved relatives for the much anticipated Christmas celebration and everyone is having a big time until…Jim and Jack show up. That’s right,  Jim Beam and Jack Daniels can add life to any party and wouldn’t you know it, it was Jack who made Brother Bill say to his gracious host, “You know you are awful lucky to have a wife like Sue, she’s a great lady. I’m glad you don’t treat her like you treated your other wives. She’s a great lady and she deserves the best…if she knew what an asshole you were while we were growing up she probably would have never married you in the first place. Yep you were the biggest asshole in town and for many years I was embarrassed to be your brother.” That is usually how the assault equation is created. Jack Daniels+Rude comments + insults in front of wife and kids= punch in the mouth. By the time I get to meet brother Bill (at the local jail) every one is calmed down, hung over and most of the time embarrassed and apologetic. When you go to your in-laws house for Christmas be a blessing, not a drunk. If you do decide to drink and start a ruck-ass, have your bail bondsman on speed dial.
