I felt it... coming towards me.. slowly yet steadily. it encompassed me gently, swaying a bit at times.. whispering to me that i was late.. but not too late, to enter the valley of death. I listned carefully, closed my eyes and heard the soft voice telling me that I had to stop doing what ever i had been, and I quickly absorbed the essence of what was being conveyed to me.. it felt strange, yet a sense of calm enveloped me and i felt at peace with myself.. something I had not experiened for years. For a second i felt scared.. I did not know where i was going to.. maybe a dark terrain where the light may never show up again.. and i imagined myself groping in the dark, looking for so many people whom i once knew, craving for a helping hand or a shoulder to lean on.. Dear God! (Does He exist?) I am sure if he does.. he shall pave the way for me in order for me to reach my destination gracefully, and without despair.
I looked forward to a silent garden.. dark , yet not completely blackened by death itself... but dusky with soft rays of light descending upon me..
just when i needed them.. especially when I craved to see the pictures of my grand children, which i had kept safely .. wrapped up in a soft white cloth, bound closely to my chest..
I have finally reached the end of the road... the time has come.. and I shall surrender to the eventual phase of my life.. which spells a new world altogether, for one and all... I hope to find serenity , peace and calm.. which will enable me to gain a new identity in the valley of eternal slumber...
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
