I’m really not a dark and gloomy guy. This is not me usually, to be so pessimistic about things… two blogs in a row about dark subjects. This blog is actually part of the one before it, in that when a small innocent victim has been attacked by a hideous creature, some of that innocence has been replaced by it. Especially if they had been with it for a period of time. When I say, “A Face to Face with one of Satan’s Minions” in the title, I’m not talking about the couple that perpetrated this horrible offence, because I had no clue how 2-faced they were. I was talking about the victim.
A family member had passed, and my wife and I were talking about family things with this family member. It was like a switch went off in them. The conversation was low key and then, bang they were spewing all kinds of anger and hate towards us, yelling at the top of their lungs, calling my wife the cruelest of names and then they left. I heard the voice of Satan within them, condemning us. Normally I would of thought stress of the situation, but this was different. This was ugly.
I tried to keep in contact with them, but their conversations were guarded and short and after a couple of months they started remembering their past. The abuses perpetrated by this couple on them. Just bits and pieces at a time, but more and more as time went by. They still haven’t remembered it all.
Our relationship is very good now in that we’ve been able to talk about this, it certainly explained a lot of the turmoil they went through when growing up. That’s a lot for a young person to carry, thank God they are a Christian in that they can give a lot of those burdens to God. Whether they can forgive the couple, well time will tell, its going to be a tough one to call and require a great deal of prayer on they’re part and mine.
“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.”
