To My Dearest Family:
Some things I'd like to say
But first of all to let you know that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from Heaven
where I dwell with God above.
Where there's no more tears or sadness
There is just eternal love
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight
Remember that I'm with you every Morning, Noon and Night
TO MY CHILDREN
He who abides in the Secret Place of the Most High,
Shall abide under the Shadow of the Almighty.
Make the Most High your Dwelling Place.
He shall give His Angels charge over you
and keep you in all your ways
Darling Sister Sue,
The last time we talked, you told me confidently that since you looked better than the Sunday you were taken to hospital there is hope. I too was hopeful because you always emphasized that you were "waxing" strong. I remained thankful to God, I will see you on my next visit. Unfortunately, even the promises of 2008 fell apart. Despite our show of uncetainties and fear, the Almighty had a better plan. You probably had a reason to always remind any one who wanted to listen that "God will make a way where there seems to be no way". Hhhmm, Now I know.
These words will continue to inspire my daily approach to life. You were such a great motivator because even in times of despair, your positive attitude encouraged every effort I made in life; though sternly guarding me against excesses. You even stood by me when my mistakes were too 'tough' to handle. Simply thanking you now will not do it all but I am comforted that the pain and suffering you endured over the years has been taken away by our Saviour.
From far away, I can still hear your echos voice assuring me that "the entire clan is in order"; sharing a hymn or cracking one of those endless jokes from your library reserved only for your girlfriends. Even when you were in pain, Your courage against odds was usually punctuated with moments of humor.
I will remember "Courage Brother, Do not Stumble"; and "What a Friend we Have in Jesus". Peace & Love always.
