Someone told me that finally the rain has ended. A wonderful touching comfort to know that this storm we have been dancing in has subsided. But not if I know my Kelsey. You seen, the Lord promised all Christian's trials and tribulation on earth. So I'm sure for Kelsey, being with my Lord, her earthly storm being overcome, there will be a heavenly storm to dance in. Oh the pain and the suffering will Not be there, These rain drops will be soaking joy and refreshing life. But she isn't done serving her first love. For eternity she will want to dance in His perfect storm.
We said so long on groundhogs day. That's sorta like a hamster isn't it. Anyway, our grief is real. It is hard to comprehend a life here on earth without my Sweet Pea. And it will be hard for sure to count to 7 and not 8 when we do the head count in the van. There are real things, real plans I so wanted to see happen. A dad always thinks of the moment when he walks down the isle, presenting his lovely daughter to be married and gaining yet another family member as they join in the new mix. There were some pretty special events yet to be covered in Kelsey's earthly life. The regret of never having those things is painful. But I am such a pig anyway. I have always gotten so much more out of life then any man deserves. And I will be comforted with the wonderful memories of a perfect beautiful life changing daughter. Kelsey was / is the perfect daughter. I can't wait to catch up just a short time from now when we meet with my Jesus.
So many of you need to be commended during this dance for the beautiful Christian character you have display as you carried our umbrella while our hands were full, guiding us lovingly around deep puddles, and offering us such kind shelters in this storm. I will never have enough thank yous to go around. One can only hope our joy can be made complete by our eternal bond we will share. And if you are reading this and don't know of that bond, please consider the weather man (Jesus)! For without Him, I would be so lost right now, but with Him, I have Joy, Hope , safety, security , and a future of praise. Tammy and I love you all and truly can't wait to hug you all around the neck. I know for some of you that will be soon, but for others, that hug may be in heaven. But a hugging we will go!!!!!!
