Till We Meet Again
Well the time has come for me to go home. I have a few things to leave with you though. Don’t grieve for me but remember the good times we’ve shared together when I was with you.
My journey is complete, so I’ll follow my new path which I must take that was made especially for me. When my old body is put to rest and my soul is joined with my new body, I’ll be in a heavenly place. I’ll try to check in on all of you from time to time with a smile on my face and maybe an encouraging word for those who can hear me. If possible I’ll be around to hear you when you call me. Don’t be upset if I don’t always answer, for I will be doing Father’s work but know you won’t be forgotten. Finally, don’t worry about me for I’m at peace and I’ll be waiting to see you again. I know you will miss me and I you but this is not goodbye but a see you later.
