Sometimes Life Just Hurts Too Much...

This has been a hard weekend for me.
It hit me Friday night...my throat was on fire again.
Thankfully I was able to get to my doctor Saturday morning
and am back on antibiotics; much stronger this time.

Seems I never got over this a few weeks ago
and it came back in a horrible way.
I couldn't even get a post written on Saturday to wish my 
amazing son, Michael, a Happy 15th Birthday.

Then I found out that a friend's mother was on her deathbed
Saturday, and passed during the night.
Another friend's brother is fighting a war with his heart.
Someone I grew up with had a liver transplant, a living transplant from his brother,
 before Christmas and now needs a miracle from God.

So much sadness.

And then I read Blondee's post last night
and my heart really was broken.

Please read.
And if you feel moved, please repost.  

I will try to be back tomorrow for Tuesday's Question.

Thank you...

Child Killer and Enough

 There is no relationship that lasts longer in this world than the relationship of siblings. God's gift of best friends to us in life. MeetLauren Belius and her twin sister Erica. Beautiful baby girls, aren't they?
 The girls were inseparable, Lauren being the brave 'older' sister, and Erica being the shy little sister.
Older brother Nolan didn't just have to share the spotlight with one cute little sister, but two! These three joined our Taekwondo studio last spring. Busy little kids that we all got a kick out of watching as they learned their counters, kicks and kata's.
 Lauren and Erica- blessings beyond words, beautiful memories made of first birthdays, milestones, holiday mornings and their sweet personalities.
 Until one horrific morning in July of 2011.
 David Trebilcock stabbed Lauren to death in her own bed as her twin sat inches from her in the very same bed, horrified and screaming for help. David had been plotting her murder, going as far as to lock the family dog in the garage and barricade the bedroom door with a dresser before approaching these amazing girls, naked- to fulfill his plan of killing a child.
 By God's grace, Lauren and Erica's mom was able to break into the room and attacked David, incapacitating him so she could get her girls out of his evil clutches. Lauren succumbed to her injuries, tragically the little girl with the big grin left her family that day and went to Heaven where she would feel no pain, have no fear, and never be harmed again.
 Now a little sister who was shy and dependent on her older, brave sister would be left to navigate the world alone. Her twin, her other half, torn from her right in front of her, torn from us all.
David Trebilcock admitted to murdering Lauren Belius. He did not take the stand in his own defense, instead pleaded not guilty by defense of insanity. He then requested a bench trial instead of a jury of his peers and last week was found NOT GUILTY of killing Lauren.
Our community has been devastated by the murder of this sweet girl, a family broken forever, and a mom has been left to look over her shoulder the rest of her life for a man who made statements that make us all concerned that her other children may be in grave danger when he is released. This man had the foresight to lock a family dog away from the girls it would have fought to protect. He shoved a dresser in front of a door that would have allowed these girls to escape. This man is not an insane man, he's a cold, calculating murderer who just worked our system and has been freed of all charges by Judge Dwyer of Oneida County.
Our laws need to be changed!
There should be NO plea of insanity if you murder a child, and there certainly should be no bench trial demanded by the murderer!

David Trebilcock can be out in the world amongst you and me in 12 months!! A man who admitted he had intercourse with a 12 year old child. A man who admitted to having drug problems in the past. A man who hid his past from others and left other states when he knew he was in trouble. The very same man who murdered Lauren in cold blood.

Allison, Lauren's Mom is asking for help in spreading the word of this injustice. PLEASE, I am asking all of my readers to help me spread the word! Repost this on your own blog. Make every community aware of what our laws really do. Help us gain national exposure to get the ball rolling and make it so David Trebilcock and other child killers can not get away with this!

  4. Oh Lois....I am in tears over here...how sad. What in the world is wrong with our society that they could say he wasn't guilty? Just tragic. Hard enough for the poor family to live with the whole thing, but then to have him let back out besides is more than you can bear.

    Sorry to hear you are sick again too. I do know what you mean. I said that very thing to my hubby a few days ago. It just seems as if there is soo much sadness going on anymore. Or am I just more aware? Either way, the world needs Him soo much. I will pray for a quick and THOROUGH recovery for you, and Happy birthday to your son!

    HUGS, Debbie

  6. To say I'm devastated is an understatement - what is wrong is turned on its head in this world!
    I can only pray God would intervene.
    Hope you too know His touch, Lois.

  10. Our laws have to change! I thought of my granddaughters when reading your post. Tragic is all I can say and that this evil man may not get the punishment he deserves in this world, but he will the next.

  14. I hope you are feeling better soon, Lois. And thank you for repeating the post about that darling little girl. There is so much sin in this world. Our 'justice' system which protects the perpetrator and not the victim or victim's family is in need of drastic change. We will be praying for them - and for this ungodly nation which used to be called a 'Christian nation.'

  15. Of course he was crazy. No sane person would do that... It makes me sick that he'll be walking around free. Thank you for sharing this so we can share his photo in case he is not placed on a registry.
