Fathers And Sons: Remembrance

We must have passed right by each other, you and I. As I was preparing to leave Heaven, I felt your soul brush mine. In that moment, I knew you completely.

The Father told me that there were two souls left behind that would need me and that I was to go to them. One would be called Mom and one would be called brother.

You left Earth much too early, but still in God's perfect time. That is why God formed the vessel that would contain my soul before you left. He knew that my mother and brother would need me to comfort them. Although you left before I was born, I knew that you were there. I was too little to tell anyone that you were not really gone. You came to me from time to time to tell me the secrets of the Kingdom and to let me know that you loved me.

Now

Now, twenty some years have passed and I no longer see you. As I began to learn to talk, your visits became less frequent. Because my Nana has gone to where you went before, I now know the heartache of separation from a loved one. My beloved Nana is gone from me. Please take good care of her, Daddy, and tell her we love her. Pop may be there soon also and I know that Mom will be heartbroken, so please comfort her. I shall be married soon, just as you married Mom so that God could form my brother and I so we could begin our journey on this earth.

I hope that I can show my children God's love just like you showed me from beyond.

Thank you, it is loosely based on a true event.
