Dear Jimmy

Listen to my Audio, the link's in the commentary above. 


Dear Jimmy, 

My love for you is unconditional as a blood brothers love should be. I've worried about you and prayed to my God asking him for an answer that would relieve all your miseries. I've meditated for hours upon hours trying to figure out a way to help put you back in command of your life. If there was anyway possible I'd step into your ora and straighten out all your problems for you, both you and I know that's impossible even though my intentions are sincere. Even though I really want to help you I can't allow myself to be misguided by compassion and shield you from the reality of your brunt errors. To do this would cause devastating results subsidizing failure. Let's face it Jim you are my brother and I don't want to see you fail.

 

Even though I'd gladly change places with you it wouldn't work because in my new role I'd find success and in your new role you'd fail. It's the hard truth that I'm telling you and I hope it's not to late for you to listen to me.

 

Through all my meditation and prayer it's become plain to me, that if you're ever going to find happiness, peace and serenity it's all up to you. You have to take complete control of your life and be the master of your own destiny. My doing this for you would only eliminate all your incentive and go against human nature. To give you love in the form of protection and comfort just might be the wrong thing to do.

 

You've been stumbling, falling and out of control for a very long time and I know you've sought help from a good many sources. Nothing has worked because you've been looking in all the wrong places. Motivation classes, treatment centers and all kinds of therapy are not the answer for you. The answer is so simple and I know you'll baulk when I give it to you. But listen to me anyway Jim, I've been there and I know.

 

The first thing you're are going to have to do, and I know you'll strongly resist, is re-accept the God that you know. Once this is done then you can again become the master in control of your life. It's almost impossible to do this without God on your side and very improbable.

 

Being the master means you accept responsibility for all things that have happened to you. Regardless of what has happened in your life accept the fact that it was you that made it possible. No matter what our stance is in life, we are there because we were or we were not in command. I love you Jimmy but my unconditional love isn't enough, I have to be strong enough and relentless enough to give you strong and true love.

 

With a little common sense and a whole lot of faith all things are possible. Somewhere in the Bible there's a scripture that reads; "Be not deceived, God shall not be mocked, for whatsoever a man soweth, that he shall also reap.’ And again it tutors, ‘in the furnace of affliction I shall refine thee." There's your answer Jimmy, you're a person with much more then average intelligence so you know dam well that I'm right.

I Love You Jim, Your Big Brother Cash

The music here is really on a sad note and it enters memories sad but what a minister said at the man's eulogy was: never judge any soul and leave it to Jesus because at the last moment before she breathed her last......she may have silently whispered I'm sorry and who are we to say Jesus never heard.............

The letter; an unseen world, filled with hope and faith to resurrect a spirit that was gone in flesh. One must believe that words such as the ones described here will never go unheard and that they serve a purpose in which the soul rejoices in contentment. May you find peace in knowing that God is a loving and forgiving God. Thank you for sharing your story.

Words from the heart I find these to be. It's said we can't step in and solve the problems or those that we love. If this was true we would not learn the lessons we are put here to learn. For experience teaches us that each and everyone has to learn their own lessons in their own time. I almost missed the last 2 lines. So sad, so sorry, but you did your best. He made his own choices, akthought it may be hard to accept.

My brother Jim lives in heaven completing a mission for our God all mighty. I love him dearly and occasionally I visualize his existence. I talk to him as I’d talk to you and it is real to me. When I don’t see him sometimes I write him letters to let him know how much I miss him. I travel beyond the realm of my imagination.

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.
