Is This Life All There is?

No matter how hard we try, we have not been able to escape the effects of aging and death.  The question that many may wonder is - "Is This Life All There is?"  As I have often stated, life is a beautiful gift from our Heavenly Father - however, this life is not all there is for mankind. Our Heavenly Father have provided a way for mankind to reach out to him and to worship him.  Through one's worship, one will come to learn of the beautiful promise recorded at "Revelation 21:3,4.He promised…See More

Life - A Gift From God!

Life as we know it - is truly a gift from God!  How we use that gift is a personal choice and decision.   Absent of life is death - which will in time befall us all.  When we lose our loved one to death - the pain is one which can't be compared to any other emotional pain or hurt.  It pull at the innermost cord of our emotions and stir up a sense of emotional lost.  However, death, is not the end of it all.  We are promised a time where all of the pain and suffering of today will soon be a…See More

Our Memories - A Beautiful Gift From Our Creator!!

When we loose a love one - how beautiful it is to know that we can reflect and cherish those memories that brings a smile to our face.  The gift can replay itself over and over again; we laugh, we cry, and we rest for those thoughts that goes back to the days when our love one was there by our side.  How, I miss my Dad....but I often replay the memories of a younger father - with energy and spunk.  His wise counsel that aided me in making wiser decisions.  Life as we know it now is not what our…See More

"Yes, caroline, we do die; however, that was not part of our Heavenly Father original plan for us to die. We do die as you said because of Adam and Eve; however, we do not long to die as we want to live and not deal with death."

Why does death hurt? Because it is not normal!

Posted on August 17, 2017 at 6:27pm 0 Comments

Death to most people seems to be the most unnormal event we deal with in life.   Yet, some are surprised to learn that it was not our Heavenly Father intention or purpose for mankind to live and die.  He created man to live under perfect conditions and also to live forever.  (Genesis 1:22)

As we see from history and the account in the Bible - mankind sinned and therefore death entered into the world.  But, can you imagine a life free of sin and death?  The ability to live forever was…

This is a beautiful site to converse with others; we learn to treat others as you want to be treated. Even if outlooks and belief system is different we learn to share. It teaches us all compassion, empathy and patient for the pain of others. It teaches us to reject "exclusion" during our time of pain. It teaches us to be considerate of all pain despite our frame of reference. It teaches us "love."

Life us full of all the beautiful elements our Heavenly Father intended for us to enjoy. Life is to be treasured and enjoyed as we hold onto it now. When we or our love fall asleep in death, we have the beautiful promise quoted at John 5:28,29 to hold onto and to look forward to in the future.

Trust in our Heavenly Father to fulfill the promise given at Revelation 21:3,4. A promise which enables us to realize that the pain of today will soon be a thing of the past. Amen.

Life is so precious; but unfortunately most do not come to that understanding or appreciation until they loose what is near and dear to their heart. Death seems so final in the wake of its' happening...it seems so foreign and benign. Yet, there is a promise given to us at Revelation 21:3,4 which holds out for all a hope for a better life and better physical living conditions. Despite the loss of today, the Bible holds out a better time and a promising better future. 1 John 5:28,29.

So sorry for late response, death is something we all will experience but respond differently. The pain is real. I will try to be better with checking this site as so many hurt and have no one to talk to....please feel free to address me via post or private messaging.

Wow,  I did not at all think that anyone would care to read, let alone respond to,  my post.  I don't have anyone (other than the Lord) I can talk to to help me get through this experience. I truly cannot tell you how much your responses mean to me.  I know that God will never leave my side, but knowing that there are people who I've never met that cared enough to respond to my brokenness gives me additional hope.   The range and intensity of emotions I continue to feel since my father's passing on October 24, 2018 makes me wonder if this will ever get any easier.

Sometimes, we think time heal all things and sometimes it does. However, it is 2018 and I still miss my parents as if it was just yesterday they fell asleep in death. Eccl. 9:5. The tears are still there in my heart and on my face. Some days better than others and some days just absolutely Tearful. I hold onto the hope given at Revelation 21:3,4 and it brings me ummeasureable delight.
