As God's children, here on earth and not in Heaven, we don't know what goes on there. God gives us little insights into His kingdom through the Bible, but do you ever wonder if our loved ones that have passed-on know what's up down here? Do you ever wonder if God gives them updates, or if He allows them to peek in on us from time to time? I know scripture verses to give me strength and confidence in almost every area of my life, but I can't remember reading any that tell me if they know. But I really hope He lets them read the letters I sometimes write. Like the one I want to write today...
Dear Mama and Daddy,
We did it! Amber and I finally did it! Amber just graduated from college. It took her a while, several major changes, several different colleges, but she finally did it! I'm so very proud of her. We'll see what's next with her soon, but I wanted you to know that she did it!
And me? Well, I registered for classes today. 14 years after leaving college and saying that yes, I'll go back next year, I finally am going to do it. My first day is August 10. (Well, as long as the financial aid goes through. Put in a good word for me?) I'm going for my BS in History, and maybe a minor in English. Matt says I'll do great in both subjects. I really hope so. I'm going to an online school out of Iowa, so we'll see how it goes. I'm nervous because everyone says there's a lot of writing in an online education program. I'm good at writing, but I'm a little scared at the amount. (I think I get the writing from you, Mama.)
All the grandkids are fine, Mama and Daddy. They're all growing fast. Wish you could see it! Eli looks like you, Daddy. Sis looks like Matt, Timmy looks like his daddy. Lilly and Deborah both look so much like Amber, it's like looking trough a time machine into our past and seeing her grow up all over again. Wonderful and very amazing.
We miss you and love you so very much!
Lots of love,
That's what I would say. Hey God? Will you let them know? Thanks!
Anyhow.... thanks for letting me be a sap today, ya'll. :D
SMOOCHIES YA'LL! See ya next time!
PS... yup! I'm going back to school! I know, I know! Took me long enough. :D
