Wow it has been a while since I posted. Me Bad!!!!
I have been so busy at work and then going to daddy's after work I just want to do absolutely nothing when I get home.
For today I want to talk about "The Untold Stories"
I don't know if any of you did this with your children but I did with mine. I kept certain stories, that they had no clue about, to myself and my plan was to share them with them when they got older.
For example, Kelsey had to have a minor surgery. But they still had to put her under for it. I was in the pre-op with her. They gave her the sleepy drugs and she was so loopy I was cracking up. Well, this was a few weeks before my 40th birthday. So I'm sitting there and all of a sudden Kelsey says, "Mom I just can't keep it a secret anymore." I said," What can't you keep a secret?" She said, "Dad has planned a surprise birthday party for you." She goes on to tell me everything he has planned, who is coming, etc.
So, the day comes and I decide I'm going to have a little fun with them. My mom calls, as she was supposed to, and informs me she is having a cookout at their house and wants me to come. Now, I know this is all part of the plan to get me to my moms house for the party. I tell my mom no, I'm going to get my hair done today. You should have seen the look on Ronnie, Courtney, and Kelsey's faces. Remember Kelsey doesn't remember telling me about the surprise. Anyway, the day goes on and they try everything to get me there and I keep saying no. Then they brought out the big guns. They had my dad call me. Now, I can never say no to my daddy. And I thought I tortured them enough. So I went, had a great time.
So, this is one of those stories I saved to tell Kelsey about when she got older. I know she would have cracked up. But it became one of the "Untold Stories."
I could write a book on all the stories I kept to tell her. I have told Courtney most of them now. Ronnie, Court, and I just laugh.
"My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him."
Amen to that scripture. I could not survive without the Lord by my side. He is my rock, my comforter, my salvation.
You know, we don't know how much time we have on the earth. Maybe I should have told Kelsey after the party. I guess what I am saying, don't put things off. Hug your kids. Hug your dad and mom. Hug your family. Life is to short.
But most of all give your heart to the Lord. He is the ONLY way to eternal life. He is the ONLY way to see our loved ones again and to live with them forever. I know I can't wait to be in Heaven with the Lord and Kelsey. No more pain, no more heart ache, no more worries. Just pure happiness. I can't wait.
My prayer to each and every one of you as always is that you ask the Lord to come into your heart. That you have the relationship with Him that I have, That we all meet in Heaven one day.
