9 comments Posted by Hannah at 7:17 PM

According to SeattlePI:

The man, 41, shot his wife during a counseling session about 5:45 p.m.

The counselor told a detective "that he had been conducting a couples counseling session when the suspect … stood up and began to leave the room. He then turned and pointed a handgun at the victim. … As (she) began to scream (her husband) continued to point the gun at her and told (the counselor) not to move and pointed the gun at him as well."

The woman was hit at least three times her torso.

The husband called 911 and told a dispatcher that he had shot his wife and that he had placed the gun on the hood of his truck, according to a probable cause statement. He then told the dispatcher her was lying on the ground.

Lydia The Child the Pearls Laugh at!

2 comments Posted by Hannah at 7:55 PM

I sit here with tears in my eyes as I read a story from Beauty For Ashes.  I'm sure some of you have read of the awful death of the child named Lydia.  Prosecutors say that earlier last month Kevin and Elizabeth Schatz of Paradise, Calif., beat their 7-year-old daughter to death with quarter-inch plastic tubing because she mispronounced a word. They say the girl's parents held her down and whipped her for hours causing massive tissue damage that resulted in her death.  Lydia's 11 year old sister was placed in the hospital in critical condition.  It seems her older sister was a bad influence on her siblings.  This couple is looking at life imprisonment.

Beauty for Ashes begins her piece:
Paul and I have just returned home from the funeral of a most precious little girl.  Lydia's smile could have lit a room. Now it reflects the glory of God the Savior for all eternity.
Yes they knew the family in question, because they had once attended their church but it seems left over doctrinal issues it seems.  This women had such grace that she showed as she spoke of this family.  The loss hit her and her family unlike most of us that read about this poor child on the news.  Its a bit different listening to how these types of things effect you when you listen to someone close enough to know them.
