In the scheme of things, I want to go in reverse to make this have a better outcome but –
This was not my plan so… let the healing begin with feel good remarks, soul-stirring singing and powerful preaching yet…
In the scheme of things we wonder if there was anything else we could have said or done but –
This was not our plan so… we remember what was:
You: teaching me how to climb a tree when I would have rather been playing with dolls.
Me: chasing you, after you teased, pulled my hair or said something mean, but I was too prissy to run through the yard. So you would always get away.
You: bending my spoon backward telling me you wanted to give me something to remember you by at that party. Sho’ wish I had that stupid spoon now.
You: texting or facebooking me just to say hello, You: proudly boasting about your kids and grandkids, You: always wanting to do better, and be who you dreamed to be.
You: never ever forgetting to say I love you.
In the scheme of things we wish we hadn’t taken your life for granted but –
We don’t know the ultimate plan so… we look to the heavens and thank the Lord that you… were a bigger part of the scheme of things.
Rest in Peace Kevin
