" Nicholas, your very short life here on this earth is just a prelude, a warm up you might say before eternity comes".
" Sometimes death scares me" he said with a scared look.
" Don't be scared of death" the Creator said with a smile. " Death is just a transition from this short life to an eternal home that I am preparing for all those who believe in me".
" So I should not fear death or funerals".
" Not if you love and have a relationship with me" the Creator said as he started to drive back toward home. " Death is just a door to joy you cannot fathom.
The Creator eased the Sonata into the small driveway and noticed all the leaves that had come down from the large maple tree in the front yard. " Nicholas, would you like to come tomorrow and help me rake all those leaves". " And talk some more".
