Happy Birthday! You have another love one with you this year on your birthday. Mema has joined all of you there and I am sure you are celebrating just being there together and with God. I miss you today! It is raining outside and raining in my heart as I can only write these messages that never reach you, still it allows time with you in my mind and helps to ease the heart. I wonder if you were living if in aging you would look more like PePa or Jim. When you left me you were as hansom as ever. I receive a message today that I want to share with you and other that may be hurting.

The Scar by Jim Rosemergy

To lose a loved one is to be
wounded deep within the Soul.
The wound will heal, but the scar
will remain. The scar is not upon
the body, but upon the heart.
To touch the scar is to recall the
image of the loved one.
To touch the scare is to experience the
love that still remains in Him,
and Is eternally sheltered in you.

"As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lightingon him. And a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased." Matthew 3:16-17
