How to live...

in this after-your-life

is the new question.

I was told about the "new normal",

I went to the Compassionate Friends meeting,

where a very sad mother told me it would never get better,

I was told to be good to myself,

which I did as much as I could while caring for everyone else,

I was told that God would not give me more than I could handle,

I was told to expect two to four years before the "me" I was... would come back,

well almost....come back.

I was told that nothing would ever be the same again.

I was told that God would undertake for me.

Some of the things I was told are true,

some are not.

Some may be true someday,

some may not.

What is true is this....

we all get there....

to that part of life where we don't have any life left.

But most of us do not believe it.

Most of us are not prepared for a lifetime of eternity, but we think we are doing pretty well

"living in the moment".

Heaven is not so abstract to me anymore.

Heaven is a home I long for.

I believe I am ready even though I am probably kidding myself.

I have a daughter there already,
and a grandmother or two...
and friends are there as well (I hope).

Before everything happened....

I thought life went too fast.

I now think life moves all too slow,

because I am so anxious for heaven.

I am in training today for eternity.

I need to pace myself,

be patient and I will get there

when I am supposed to.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
