A very special email arrived today and left me thinking.......
Hello everyone! I hope your Easter Sunday and Passover Holiday has been all you hoped and dreamed it would be.
I had planned on writing about something completely different, but, well, life's little surprises hava a way of changing daily priorities in the blink of an eye. Then again, maybe what has happened was meant to happen.
Maybe God's love is sending me a message that it is time for forgiveness, a time for humbleness. Maybe it is God's gift to me, though I have never asked of anything from anyone before.
As with every day, I know God's love surrounds me, but today......today......today became a very special day. I received an email from someone I have not spoken to or seen in almost forty years.
The email is from my baby brother!!!! Only difference is, he is not such a baby anymore. How was he able to find me when he does not even know my name? Was it through God's guidence? This must be a miracle, what else could it be?
Now I will have to think long and hard as to what to do and how to handle this? If any of you have suggestions I am all ears. We were separated so very long ago that as time went on I gave it less......and less......and less thought.
Every now and then I have tried to find him, but to no avail. I figured that like myself he moved out of state. Each time I tried to find him I was left disheartened and finally gave it up and went on with my life.
Until......until today and now my mind and my heart is on one huge roller coaster ride. Full of emotion and full of questions, but then, will it all be in vain again?
I have since responded to his email and now once again I wait......and wait......and wait to see if he will once again email me.
Hope you will all understand why I had to write about all of this. I still do not know if I should be thankful, patient or just let it go and put it back into the past where it came from.
I have been praying all day, thanking God for this gift of gifts, but am still filled with so many emotions. What do I do and where do I go from here?

|Miracles do happen - especially where there is will on both sides. I hope you are still in touch and building on that first tentative connection.

No doubt there is goodness in this; be patient and He will show you the path forward. Please share any updates if you'd like. I think your pen friends would like to know.

|Great news!!! This truly does make one's day to hear of such a good thing happening, especially in this troubled world of ours today. My suggestion would be to take it one day at a time my friend. Allow the relationship to fall into place, both of you will benefit from the times together. Wishing you only the very best on this new path to rekindling a relationship with your brother!

|Karen, this is wonderful news. I pray that you reunite with your baby brother soon. I believe that if you want something so badly, you tap into the natural laws of attraction that people, circumstances and timing cause it to manifest for you almost magically. It appears as though you both have been wanting this, so there is no question. Seek the quiet from within you and there you will be guided with exactly what to do. I'm so very happy for you.|

Life is too short to hold onto things of the past, to hold grudges; all you can do (and you have, in responding to him) is reach out in love. That, and pray for him, and for yourself, to ask God to give you BOTH the strength you need to follow the path He directs. That's the best advice I can give you.
As for the news, I am happy for you. Do I see God in this? I do, I really do.
You and your baby brother are in my prayers.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
As (my) Karen said, can't wait until Thursday!! :) Looking forward to it.

|I can't give you advice; no one can, morally or legally. We don't know the circumstances. But if you're sure that the person who e-mailed is your brother, I would leave the door open and see what happens. A connection with a family member is priceless. Keep calm, keep praying that what's right and just for everyone involved, will happen. God Bless.
