A True Blessing

Good morning Caleb, 

Today is going to be a good day, I can just feel it in my blood.  I have energy, my body feels good and I am ready to get up and take this day on.  There is a lot of work that has to be done around so as soon as I finish this letter to you, I am going to get busy.  I think that the first thing I am going to do is mow the yard.  Gotta get that finished before the day gets hot.  I will go from there.  Did you sleep well last night?  To me it just felt good to sleep in a little bit.  This heat has sure wore me down.  By the time the week is up, I am so tired I have no energy for anything else.  But today is different.  I feel alive!  I am ready to do this.  I do not get many moments like this so I am going to take advantage of it.

I would like to take the time to talk with you about God bubby.  Is that ok with you?….I just need to express to someone how much I love Him.  So I figured the best person I could talk to is my little angel.  I have come to realize many things since you passed.  God has opened my eyes to those things.  I now have a deeper love for you mother.  I respect her to the max.  We have weathered many tough times together.  When those times do come.  I grab the reigns and lead the way through the fire.  When all the smoke is cleared she is standing right there beside me.  I truly see her as a blessing from God.  For many years I tried to find a copilot in life’s journey.  I never could find anybody to fit that bill.  Until I met your mother.  That seat beside me in life was made for her.  Thank you God.

One thing I can say about God.  He has always been there for me when I needed him.  Especially during the darkest times of my life.  There were times that I strayed away from him and tried to venture out on my own.  I will tell you there were times that were really scary.  God has always been there waiting for me with arms wide open.  It makes him so happy when I come back home.  I am not leaving this time.  I need God.  I have been told by so many people in my life that I need to be the leader of my family.  I thought I was being a leader, turns out I was leading my family in the wrong direction.  When you went with God, I turned around on the spot.  I am really glad that I did that.  Things do not seem so dark anymore.  I can only imagine what you see right now.  All I have to say about that is, wow!  It must be amazing.  

 Before I end this letter to you bubby, I want to share with you a poem.  I got it from that little handout that you get from the funeral home.  You know the one where it tells you who died, when they were born, when they died.  Do you know what I am talking about now.  Sorry for the rough explanation.  Anyhow here it is:

A Baby’s Secret

I’m just a little person;  And I didn’t quite make it there;  I went straight to be with Jesus And I’m waiting for you there.

Don’t you fret about me, Mommy,  I’m of all God’s lambs most blest;  I’d have loved to stayed there with you, But Our Shepard know’s what’s best.

Many dwelling here where I live Waited years to enter in;  Struggled through a world of sorrow And their lives were marred with sin.

So sweet Mommy don’t you sorrow, Chase the gloom and wipe the tears;  I went straight to Jesus’s bosom May your heartache disappear.

Daddy gave me something for you, it’s our secret Mommy dear; Pressed it tight against my forehead, Whispered in my tiny ear.

I’ll be waiting for you Mommy-You and Daddy, all the rest.  I’ll be with you then forever And I’ll give you Daddy’s Kiss.

     Well that is it for today.  I am going to go ahead and get this day going.  I will talk to you later on my little angel.  We all love you and miss you.

I love you like a fat kid loves cake, 

Daddy

Crossing Paths

Good morning Caleb, 

This journey is starting to become one of a very interesting nature.  What started out as simple letters to you son, is heading in a direction that will offer a bit of peace to just about any body who stops here.  That is exactly what I intended to happen with this whole thing.  I find it really comforting inside to know that what we have going here is actually helping someone.  Cause bubby you know just as well as I do this whole thing is very painful.  It is important that we take such a powerful energy and do something positive with it.  If not, the outcome would be very bad.  Losing you was one of the hardest things that I have ever had to endure.  That is why I have dedicated each and every day to Jesus, you and my family.  If we all have a positive energy flowing, surrounded by God’s wonderful love we can keep the devil away at such a very vulnerable time in our lives.  Such a positive energy has the capabilities of spreading like a wildfire.  Maybe, just maybe not only will we help someone cope with loss.  We could even lead them to Jesus.  That would be awesome.  

Now let us just switch gears here.  Last night God’s wonderful power came to work for our family.  You see I believe that in life God causes us to cross paths with people who will enable us to be closer to Him.  It happened!  I spoke with two very dear people last night.  I could tell that it was meant to be.  You know at first, it was just out of plain love so that I could offer my readers who were hurting, something so valuable.  By the end of the phone conversation I loved and respected this family like my very own.  I feel so much closer to God now than I have ever before.  I love you Lord!!  you are my savior.

 I have made a decision to go out here and have the best possible day that I can, in the name of Jesus.  So with that I am going to go ahead and end this letter so that I can get ready for work.  Have an awesome day in heaven todayand I am sure that I will see you somewhere.  I always do.  You are everywhere bubby.

I love you like a fat kid loves cake, 

Daddy

A Fair Trade

Good morning Caleb, 

 

Yes I know, I have not been very good at getting a letter to you every day.  These past couple of days have been rough on me son.  There is some positive news though.  I believe that after talking to God, he has healed me.  One thing good has come out my pain.  We have managed to really touch a person’s heart through these letters.  My sadness equaled her happiness.  That sounds like a fair trade to me, after all that is the main reason that I am writing these letters to you.  I will continue to write these letters to you bubby.  You are very alive in my life.  I know that you are setting right here beside me while I am writing.

 

I have some very wonderful news.  There is a lady that takes the clothing of our passed loved ones and makes memory bears out of them.  She liked a post on my site a few days ago.  So I followed her link to see where it led me.  I thought to myself, “that would be great to offer to my readers.”  I contacted her yesterday and she agreed to author a page for my blog.  I am so thankful for this.  It is just another way that the Lord is working to help me make the very most out of these letters and this site.  I believe that in the future bubby this site is going to be the place to go when anyone has a souls that is hurting.  That is my dream.  With the love of Jesus I will accomplish this.

 

Well it is that time again.  Work.  So I must go and get ready now.  I will most definitely be thinking of you today.  Have an awesome day in Heaven today, or if you wish feel free to come hang out with me today.  I will not mind at all.

 

I love you like a fat kid loves cake, 

Daddy
