Afterwords: Death is a Doorway to Heaven


Our last good-bye on earth will be our first hello in heaven.

Our last gasp on earth will be our first breath in heaven.

Our last words of departure on earth will be our first words of arrival in heaven.

Our last day of sleep on earth will be our first awakening in heaven.

Our last meal on earth will be our first feast in heaven.

To close our eyes one day on earth is to open our eyes the next day in heaven.

Death is simply a doorway to entering God’s Presence, receiving our eternal reward and living with God forever and ever.
