Heartbreaking

This makes me want to cry.

Children having children.  Cruelty to Innocents.  In our own backyard.  I was mere miles from there when it was happening.

A nearly-two-year-old is a remarkably intelligent creature despite his inability to communicate fully. Kids take in a lot more than most people give them credit for.  It breaks my heart that people treat their kids with such merciless distain.  Why is it fun to throw someone off balance, take away their boundaries, make them feel small, cause them distress?  Even in non-criminal ways.

Today I hold my own wee ones a little closer and speak to them a little more gently.

    Kids these days are no longer afraid of the law. They can and will do anything they want to, however they want to. But this is not God's world.

    (John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.)

    We just have to wait for His return. Then all will be well. :) But meanwhile, we have to suffer but stand strong in our faith. For He will never fail us. It's promised:

    (Revelation 21:7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.)
