A Cool Sunny Morning

Good morning Caleb, 

Today’s letter is one of a different nature.  I decided that I was going to come out to the cemetery and write this.  It is really rather peaceful out here.  The wind is blowing on the back of my neck and the birds are all singing.  We had a bit of rain this morning, but it has gave way to a cool sunny morning.  I simply love the way it feels out here.

Before I sat down to write this I stopped by your graveside to tidy things up a bit.  There was some grass on your stone and some of the displays were knocked over.  It looks much better now.  It seems as if I am not the only one who has been out here recently because there is a piece of candy lying in the grass where you are buried.  This has to be the act of either your grandma or grandpa, they always make sure that you are good and stocked up with candy.  Needless to say, If I am ever in the area and I want a piece, I know where to get it from.

 I also went to make sure that the other three plots we have beside you are still reserved, they are.  One day when your mother and I come across some extra money, I am gonna go in there and pay for those plots so that we can be certain about being buried beside you when we make our transition.

 I was reading a story yesterday about hospice and palliative care.  One specific part of the story that I remember the most was in the beginning of the article.  It spoke of an elderly man who was sitting up in his bed shooting the breeze with several political colleagues one evening.  Early the next morning he had passed away.  This reminded me of you.  I remembered the last time I saw you alive was when I brought you over to the house to change your dirty diaper.  The next time I saw you, you were gone.  It amazes me how fragile life is, one minute we are here.  The next minute we are gone.  Wow!  All that is left now is an emotional scar, memories, a plot of dirt and a rock.  I miss you bubby.

 I Love you like a fat kid loves cake, 

Daddy

An Invitation

Good morning Caleb, 

It is almost that time of year again.  Yes, you guessed it right, sissy’s birthday.  Can you guess how she will be?….”3″….nope that is not right, try again….”4″….you are getting closer….”5″….not quite, but you are super close….”6″….alright!  you did it!  you guessed it right!  I am so proud of you.  Your birthday is going to be next month.  You are going to be 3.  The question is, are you going to be there?  I sure would like it, heck we would all like it.  Maybe God will watch your little puppy while you are away.  So what do you say.  Wanna come?  Hey!  I know!  you can come to sissy’s party as well.  It would be awesome to see you so many times.  Think about it ok, let me know when you have an answer.  

I love you like a fat kid loves cake, 

Daddy

What Are You Waiting For?

The past doesn’t matter, only your decision now will make the eternal difference.The price has been paid for your mistakes, your sins, and your rebellion. All you have to do is accept the pardon, the forgiveness offered.

What are you waiting for?

 “Jesus, you took my place, you have paid the price for my sins, you have set me free.  Thank you. I invite you into my heart, help me to live that others might see you and find eternal life, Amen.”

A Short Visit

Good morning Caleb, 

Yay!  It is finally Monday.  I have been waiting for this day all weekend.  I am so glad to finally be back here with you again.  Mommy and sissy are gone to work and school, so it is just you and me.  Come on over here and let me give you a super-size hug.  Thank you, that is all I needed from you today.  I feel a thousand times better now.  Time to go and get my day going.  I will see you again tomorrow.

I love you like a fat kid loves cake, 

Daddy
