This entry is so I can sleep after reading what I've read

Nothing tears my heart out worse than stories like this.

"Laney was a deeply religious woman who home-schooled her children before mental illness drove her on May 10, 2003 to kill Joshua, 8, and Luke, 6 and injure Aaron, now 2, Files said during the trial."

Full story is here, though I would highly recommend not reading any more. In fact, I shouldn't have even showed you this. I wish I hadn't seen it. I always think of what the children must have felt, and what went through their minds as they were betrayed in so evil a way by the person on earth they trusted most.

I am happy my beliefs allow me to think that her punishment will be especially severe. And, I don't mean "life imprisonment" but the agony she will live with, and what will come after.

For those curious, God did speak to this subject in His word.

Matthew 18:6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Matthew 18:10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.

Matthew 18:14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.

Mark 9:42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

Luke 17:2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
