Beautiful! Here's one of my favorite lines: "...no one is ever ready for heaven, but it's always ready for you." Lovely.

I like how you brought us to death with this character. I was so sad for her. But then you took us beyond death...to the "victory" part. I loved what you said afterward, "The doors of heaven opened wide and Jesus stood before me as I glanced inside. He was the vision of perfection and of peace. I stared in awe my mouth agape and he smiled warmly at me. His hands outstretched I ran to his embrace, all the while staring at smile upon my Savior’s face.

“Well done,” he whispers gently in my ear. “For you have persevered in times of trial, leaning upon me for your strength.” Thanks, I really was blessed by reading this.
I felt the sadness your story conveyed. Doubly so, because I've stood at the brink of the hereafter myself but didn't die as expected. Good job writing this story. Blessings on you.
