"For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten son. that who so ever belief in Him should not perish but have ever lasting life."
I know everyone has heard that verse. It is one of my favorites. After losing not one but two children I have more respect for the Lord and love him more than I have ever loved him in my life.
You see, like I teach the youth. I lost my children and it has broken my heart beyond repair. But I didn’t have a choice in the loss of Kelsey and Annie. Just think about this for a minute. God sent his ONLY son to this earth knowing that he, Jesus, would be crucified on the cross for OUR sins so we could have ever lasting life.
Sorry folks, I know the pain all too well of losing a child. I could NOT do what God did. I couldn’t. To me that is unconditional love. That is an assume God. That is selfless God. That is a WONDERFUL God. A God that loves us so, so much.
This is a story Courtney posted on Kelsey's Facebook back in 2012. Kelsey was always helping others and taking care of them....
so i was telling Kate about that one time when i decided to walk home from pom practice and even though it was like 10am it was literally 90 degrees, it was SO hot out, so i called you when i was close to Admiral and i asked you to set a glass of water on the counter so i could chug it when i got home, not only did you get me that glass of water, but you walked all the way from home and met me at Saddlers with the glass of water in your hand and made me drink it. you didn't even put it in a bottle you literally just brought me a glass of water and walked far down the road to get it to me. i miss that. going miles for each other even though we got nothing in return. that's love.
That was Kelsey. She would help anyone, not just her “Twiny” anyone. That was just her nature. I’ve written about many stories that people have told us about Kelsey's generosity and LOVE for people. Even strangers.
When I found this the other day I didn’t remember the story. I cried of course, you all know me. I knew I had to write a blog about it.
This is my question. There is so much hatred in this world today. Even in our own Country. Everyone is fighting and killing people. People are being mean to the President of the United States. The worse I have ever seen in my lifetime. So my question, what happen To LOVE one another? What happen to be KIND to one another? What has happen to our world?
Maybe people should take a lesson from my Kelsey. Maybe they should read this blog. Or better yet, maybe they should read the Bible. I think people have forgotten how to LOVE. And this makes me sad.
I just worry about this world and everyone. I want to meet everyone that has helped me through everything the last 7 years. I want to meet you all in Heaven and introduce you to my Kelsey. You all would really LOVE her. And she would be hugging you and thanking you all for helping her mamma through the worst time of her life.
Before I close this blog I wanted to share some wonderful news. My Courtney, Kelsey’s Twin, is getting married. YAY!!!! Finally a happy event. I am so excited I can hardly contain myself. They don’t have a date yet, but at least we have something wonderful to look forward to. I know that Kelsey is dancing in Heaven.
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.
