Letter From Heaven

There are many poems, stories and letters that seem to reach us from some inspired soul, I came across this letter and the words were truly comforting.  Although the author is unknown, I am grateful that they were able to write something that expressed our hope, belief and desire for our loved ones.  They may not answer our questions, but they give us that light at the end of the tunnel.  For those of us who believe in life after death, this beautiful letter, gives us a glimpse of all we hope for and believe in.  

Rachel has come to me in my dreams, she has come to other family members as well, and the message is always one of happiness, peace and tranquility.  Just recently, my 7-year old niece told me that Rachel had spoken to her (yes, I believe they communicate with us somehow) and in their conversation, Rachel told her she was happy, and that God is really nice.  It was simple words from a small child, but they gave my heart wings, they reassured me, giving me a comfort that I cannot explain.  

We all want to know and believe that our loved ones are fine, that they are happy and that there is something beyond this life.  This letter for me, is just that, a comforting message which some beautiful stranger felt it necessary to write and share.  Who ever you may be, I thank you for your inspired words.

I hope it brings you hope and comfort, too.

Letter From Heaven

To my dearest family:

Some things I'd like to say, but first of all to let you know that I arrived okay.  I'm writing you from Heaven where I dwell with God above, where there's no more tears or sadness there is just eternal love.  Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight, remember that I'm with you every morning, noon, and night.

That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through, God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you".  "It's good to have you back again you were missed while you were gone, as for your dearest family they'll be here later on."  "I need you here so badly as part of My big plan, there's so much that we have to do to help our mortal man."

Then God gave me a list of things He wished for me to do, and foremost on that list of mine is to watch and care for you.   And I will be beside you every day and week and year, and when you're sad I'm standing there to wipe away that tear.  And when you lie in bed at night the days chores put to flight, God and I are closest to you in the middle of the night.  When you think of my life on earth and all those loving years, because you're only human they are bound to bring you tears.  But do not be afraid to cry it does relieve the pain, remember there would be no flowers unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you of all that God has planned, but if I were to tell you you wouldn't understand.  But one thing is for certain though my life on earth is o'er, I am closer to you now than I ever was before. 

And to my very dearest friends trust God for He knows best, I'm still not far away from you I'm just beyond the crest. There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb, but together we can do it taking one day at a time.  It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too, that as you give unto the world so the world will give to you.  If you can help somebody who's in sorrow or in pain, then you can say to God at night my day was not in vain.  And now I am contented that my life... it was worthwhile, knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is down and feeling low, just lend a hand to pick him up as on your way you go.  When you are walking down the street and you've got me on your mind, I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.  And when you feel that gentle breeze or the wind upon your face, that's me giving you a great big hug or just a soft embrace.  And when it's time for you to go from that body to be free, remember you're not going... you are coming here to me!  And I will always love you from that land way up above, I'll be in touch again soon P.S....God sends His love.

I am so sorry....but, remember....God knows best!  My prayers and thoughts are with you always.  I love you more than you will ever know

(Unknown author)

Blessings! and until we meet again.

  2. One morning while getting ready for work and school, my son who was 6 years old at the time was coming down the stairs. He suddenly stopped midway up. Saying very loudly "Mommy I smell Grandma right here were it's really warm"!! My mother had passed away in July of 1999, she wore a very distinct perfume calld White Diamonds he said he could smell it. I didn't but he did and I was so happy for him this was September. He missed his grandmother. I am so sure till now she came to him to let him know she was just fine!! He has never forgotten this even now when he is nearly 18.

  3. Alli,

    What a wonderful memory for your son and you. It is a comfort when we know they are okay, and that somehow they are also watching over us.

    Take care, xoxox

  4. Rose Mary, This was a lovely letter to post today, so full of good messages for grieving hearts. I also love Alli's comment up there! Sometimes I'm not sure the deceased communicate with us, but then I read this stuff and I believe again! Thank you! (I posted tips for the holidays today and would love to hear your suggestions as a grieving mother). Thanks for sharing your pain and wisdom. You really help many others by doing so.

  5. Thank you, Nancy

    We hold onto to our beliefs, and they give us comfort beyond measure.

    I also am grateful for the innocence of youth, and their openness to what is around them. They help us see glimpses of what is sometime invisible to the older, more stubborn eye.

    I will definitely be checking out your post...

    Take care, Nancy xoxoxo

  6. That's what my mom said to me when she appeared in my dream! Ironic!

    Thanks for posting this! Hope this holiday season treats you well xoxo

  7. Sami, I guess that means there is definitely something to look forward too.

    Enjoy your holidays too, wishing you love, laughter and happiness.

    Take care, xoxoxo
