It’s so hard to accept, the fact that you’re gone, but God had His reasons why He called you home, He knew you were sick, for a very long time, and He saw that your body was starting to un-wind. He reached out His hand and said, “It’s time to leave, I’ve come to prepare your place with me.”

We can never prepare our hearts for this hurt, or ask all the questions we’ll never understand. In time you will realize, it was all part of His plan. So don’t spend your tears, crying for me, take comfort in knowing, I have been set free.

I walk with the Creator, from the heavens above, to leave you a message that is nothing but love. Be good to each other, with the time that you have, don’t ever say things that you can never take back.
