Well after devising a couple schemes to try to catch the "sign snatchers", and being supported by my wife in my efforts there was a reversal of opinion last night.
My wife sat me down and said that we shouldn't do anything to or about the sign stealers. She said that as she was praying yesterday she felt impressed not to seek revenge and love our enemies, to just "turn the other cheek". That it wasn't our place to meet out punishment, and that God would take care of it. That he has blessed us beyond measure and we were wasting precious time and energy on something that was of no consequence. She said if they want to keep stealing it we will just keep replacing it.
You know what she is right, and I am going to listen to her wisdom on this and not worry about it. I still may have to replace it with a very large plywood sign that they can't take, but I will not be seeking revenge or trying to punish anyone that is taking the sign.
Thanks Honey, for praying, for listening, for sharing your advice with me.
