The Visit

She quietly slipped into his room
There he lay very proud and arrogant 
Who had held a gun to her child's head_ "boom", 
He would say_Satan his  assistant

He would tell her child that he would kill her
And he would kill her beloved family
She could not know that this would not occur
The child lived for eighteen years anxiously

How can one forgive heinous offense
Committed against a child that is loved
Only through God forgiveness for events
God forgave without Him she would be unloved

She asked him if he needed anything
Promised to visit while inside screaming


Our ex-son-in-law is in a nursing home now in the last stages of Huntington's Disease
We think that he was abusive because of the illness but don't know for sure..
Our daughter divorced him and remarried to a man who is treating her good...

    Sara; this is so sad. It is terrible to have to go through something like this. I'm glad that she is doing good now. Many blessings. Lucilla

    YYou asked. No disease can make you say things. Only an evil spirit that was born with you.and if that be love then love is evil. Never underestimate evil. Because if I can't have it no one will.

    John, Thanks for the reply..God in me still wants to see him(ex-son-in-law) to come to repentance and be forgiven..I have to deal with the dislike that is within myself and ask God's forgiveness for the ill feelings that I have at times..It is hard to separate the person from the deed..Sara

    P s. Blasphemy against the holy spirit is an unforgivable sin.

    It's very eerie feeling in the poem ! So sad too. I'm glad she is away from him now. How can one live this way?
