I am here, your loving father.
I am the father of that boy, and I want to say to him that I am happy too, but not as happy as his mother. I am not in her sphere, but I am striving to get there and enjoy her home. My son, I am also happy that you are trying to follow the steps of the Master and in your love for the Father, and in your soul aspirations.
Believe in this truth, and you will not be disappointed, and when the great day of reunion comes you will find more love waiting for you than you ever thought possible for a spirit to receive.
So trust in God and follow the teachings of the Master, I know, as one who was ignorant when on earth and now have learned since coming into the spirit world.
God Bless that dear Mother of yours! If it had not been for her, after she came into the spirit world, I probably would not have as easy a going in my progress in the spirit world as I have had. I was a man, enjoying the happiness which my good nature and love of things generally gave me, but when your mother came over, and I saw that she had a Love which I had not, and which I must get in order to be with her, and when she told me about it, I sought for the same kind of Love which she had, and with her help and the help of the Father's Holy Spirit, I obtained this Love and am now very happy, but as of now, I am not with her. She is so beautiful and good that I am not satisfied to be away from her and I am trying with all my soul's desire to progress and be with her.
So believe what we say to you and trust in God and you will be happy.
Your loving father,
