Upon dealing with death.

by - April 25, 2012

I have this theory that heaven is a place we already know.
It's a place so familiar to us that when we are welcomed back with open and loving arms after we leave this earth; we don't even realized we've left.
In my version of heaven we are surrounded by the grace of God, by the people we love and the things we enjoyed in life.
It's a place where time has no value, money has no face and sadness, fear and hurt are nonexistent.

I cling to this vision of heaven as my Grandma made her peaceful transition into our loving Father's arms yesterday morning.

I picture her being reunited with her parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousin, siblings and old friends.
I can see her regaining her strength, her wit, her vitality, her zest and zeal that she once so possessed in this lifetime.
I imagine her fondly looking back at her life on earth and those she leaves behind to mourn her: a devoted husband and a loving family.  I know she will remember fondly all the tears she shed, the moments she shared and the memories that were made.  She will acknowledge them, but now knowing much more than we do about life and living and faith and death; she will say a prayer for us that we may find peace and know that there is so much more to life than simply what is on earth.
May you find comfort and joy, Grandma. You are loved dearly and will be greatly missed.

Until we meet again.
