Once I had a body that was strong as strong could be. All its parts from lungs to heart and toes to nose and all between belonged exclusively to me. My appetite was my delight and every bite I tried satisfied the Me inside.

Then I left the private room of my mother’s womb to belong to the reality of humanity and insanity that the soul controls from the instant of virginity and remains beyond longevity to eternity.

Eventually, illness, age and the will of God reserved a place where I could sleep until I kept my date with fate.

It is never too early or too late. We all await the dictates of He who creates.

Along the way, at work and play, and other times day by day, the soul was there to share the whys and wherefores that are ever more part of how we care for others, for sisters, brothers. fathers, mothers, relation and other associations in daily communications, and occasions and confrontations with all I met in various places life embraces.

This is how life goes on while you’re here. Once you’re gone from this stratosphere what you leave is kept in mind by those left behind.

From birth to death every breath of air is shared by those for whom you cared while you and they were here.

Perhaps we will return again when the time is right, the stars are bright and your soul takes flight to light the life of another assigned sister or brother.

Once born we are never torn from life. We are granted eternal rest while our souls do their best to guide another life that takes our space in this place of worth called Mother Earth.

My soul respect God so wise and strives to fulfill His every will I will be welcomed in to Heaven where He wants me to be.
