Safely Home

I am home in heaven, dear ones.
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is a perfect joy and beauty
In the everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in heaven at last.
There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand,
Do it now, while life remaineth . . .
You shall rest in God's own land.
When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meetingyou one day, your Mom
Oh, t.he joy to see you come!"

"And if I go, while you’re still here…
know that I live on,
vibrating to a different measure behind a thin veil you cannot see through.

You will not see me,
so you must have faith.

I wait for the time when we can soar together again, both aware of each other.

Until then, live your life to its fullest and when you need me, just whisper my name in your heart…I will be there."

They will never be the same again, you always made us laugh, especially Joe, he was just here talking with me about you,he misses you so, he is like me it is so very empty without our Chad. RIP my son. Now you are free from the ugly comments & judgement. the women who never wanted you & broke your heart, the pain, the defeat you had to feel, please forgive us all for any pain we ever gave you, for you live in our hearts & memories everyday, Jesus took you home from this worldly strife, you told me the last day of your life you talked to Jesus everyday, that Grandma Ruby had a place saved for you in Heaven, I know she did she always loved you so, , we love you our handsome truck driver, you were not a failure, you made all laugh, you shared, you did not judge, God blessed us with having you, I am so thankful for this."

"it is a beautiful day, I thank you Lord for all you have given me, my heart misses my Chad so much, I long to talk to him, see his smile, cook for him, cut his hair again. I know he is in a much better place with you Jesus, but I am still a human, I am his mother, the love is so strong. Thank you for sending him to me to let me know he is with you, I have been so blessed, I pray for you to guide me further & I thank you for all the help you have given me. Amen"

"I set here missing my son so, not knowing some times how I will go on, he was such a great part of my life, everything seems empty with out him here. The joy & love I felt when I'd see him at my door or driving his big grain truck, I never thought I would have to fgo throughe this life without him, old age would have not been so bad if my boy was here to be with me, Oh my Heavenly Father, help me...Amen"

"today was a hard day for Chads brother  Joey & myself, we were both so very close to Chaddy, he lived with Joey & called & came by everyday, he was the instigator of all the fun cook outs, always bringing movies to watch, doing fun family things, his leaving has made our lives so lonely & empty. We treasure every minute we had with him, this is so hard to live with out our boy, Help us Jesus."
