Edward and I are both recovering slowly. Still very painful and sore with daily trips to the practice nurse to change dressings etc. Ed's apetite has returned which is a good sign and I'm able to get about more easily. Looking forward to our day in court !!.

Many thanks for your kinds comments.. Martin & Ed


  1. Dear Martin and Ed. Glad to see that you are both healing physically any way. I expect it may take some time to get over things emotionally.
    Have had you both in my prayers and hope you continue to keep us up to date with your news. Thanks to Mort. my last comment got through. Hopefully this one will go directly !!

    if, you had been
    carrying your gun
    at the time

  7. Please let us know how you are all doing?! Our thoughts and
    prayers are with you. So sorry you had to experience such a horrible
    incident especially during the anniversary week of Jane's passing. Kudos though because it seems you saved the life of that boy that
    came to you for help. So in a way, you and your son are real life

    May God's Holy Angels watch over you and your family and protect you all.

    God Bless

  8. Dear Martin,
    I was an online friend of Jane's for some years and was deeply saddened at her passing. I followed her blog and it continued after she passed away with reading your blog, just to see how you guys were coping.
    What has happened recently forced me to make a comment as it truly sickened me to hear what had happened to you and your son, especially everything you have all been through these last couple of years. It defies all belief and leaves me feeling very angry.
    If there is any glimmer of light, I hope justice will be served on the scum and that all these devastating experiences will somehow make you even stronger than you are, both spiritually and emotionally.
    Sometimes things are certainly sent to test us!
    My thoughts and best wishes to you both on your continued recoveries.

  9. Hello,
    I have a question about your blog. Please email me!

  10. I wish you would let us know how you all are!

  11. hi martin,

    i stumbled across jane's blog. i dont know either of you. i was hoping there would be some recent entries so that we know you are ok.

  12. Hi Martin! I find myself thinking about you and your family from time to time. Praying you all are ok. Missing Jane as well.....

  13. Thinking of you, hoping your okay, please let us know my old friend.

  14. God has been the difference in my own life during times of loneliness, heartbreak, and pain. I know too well what it means of not getting encouraged by others and the hurt that comes from that. I've found that only God always offer encouragement and hope, much better than any human can offer. I can only imagine how it feels to be widowed. I have the taste of having a soul tie broken- I've gotten dumped in the past and it's hurt me so much in the past. The Bible teaches that a sexual relationship (whether marital or premarital) results in the man and woman becoming one (a soul tie). Rejection and abandonment are all painful things. King Solomon said that everything in this world is vanity, everything is meaningless- a chasing after the wind. Eventually whatever we gain in this world (relationships, success, wealth), we lose them all at some point. There is something you can never lose though- God. God surpasses everything in our lives. Our thirsting for things in this world (especially human relationships) is evidence that we need something greater than those things to satisfy us because everything except God will end up failing you in some way. God has promised us that He will never leave us nor forsake us. God can't die on us and leave us in a state of loneliness. God won't cheat on us, dump us and go off with someone else. Whenever you feel lonely or feel that you're missing something in your life- realize that God wants to fill that void in your life. So many times I've been ignorant about the Bible. We're trained from our birth to live by our 5 senses- thus we look to perceive God with those senses. Most of the time, we can't perceive God with our 5 senses as He is a spiritual being. God has wanted me to develop my spiritual senses and rely on His word (the Bible) to experience Him. I've learned to always see God's word as alive, powerful, and relevant for each day. When I've failed to see that in the past, it's robbed me so much joy and peace. I've learned to look at the Bible as a powerful and active gateway/portal to God. We can try to occupy our minds with so many different things in this world to try and fill the void in our lives or suppress the pain, but all of those things will keep us still hungry and thirsty. God has promised us that if we reach out to Him, He will give us rest, quench our thirst, and satisfy our hunger. If you haven't done that, I hope you will give God a chance. I further hope that God will use you to go and reach others with His word, just like He has used me to reach out to you. Many people in this world are hurting just like you. Many are just looking for a simple act of kindness or a word of encouragement (words are powerful- they can heal and motivate or when used in an evil manner destroy others) which they don't receive from others. Ultimately, many even end their own lives because they feel hopeless and want to end their pain of torment- all because they've failed to see God was nearby all along and they failed to perceive Him with their spiritual senses. God loves you more than any human in this world! He wants to be your companion today and take care of you and your family's needs. I hope you see and explore His love for you today through the Bible- the Bible is the secret source for unraveling peace and joy for you when you can't find them in this world. I can't give you physical copy of the Bible right now, but you can freely access it online at ( May God bless you, heal you and strengthen you and your family. Continue to write and help others for His glory. Claim God's promises to you from His word today. Humans will likely fail to encourage you when you really need it, however, God won't fail. All you need to do is turn to His word. It is available 24/7 whenever you need it- to experience God.

  15. Please read these verses when you get the chance- Isaiah 55:11-13; Jeremiah 49:11; Psalm 146:9; Psalm 68:5; Isaiah 54:4-6; Revelation 21:1-7; Jeremiah 17:5-8; Isaiah 2:22; 1 Corinthians 7:29-35.
