Death is Nothing at all

I received this from a friend so I thought I would share it with you.RIP

Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away to the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains the exactly as it was. I am I and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. What ever we wee to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference in tour tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval, something where very near, just around the corner. All is well.

    When you believe in God, death should not be feared but embraced. Death is nothing more than another part of the journey to the kingdom of heaven. Without faith, you have nothing! God bless you and your family. Thank you for an inspiring article that is sure to help many people.

    I have a question for you, feel free not to answer it if it is going to far. Are you afraid of dying? I’ve always thought it was weird so many people fear death when it is certain to happen and the afterlife follows it so it is not really the end.

      It is a good question and the answer is No, I am not afraid of dying. In short been there done that. The Lord wasn’t ready for me to stay at home so He sent me back to either my parents or soon to be wife. I do not yet no what my mission is here on earth but until I have accomplished I am stuck here. Now on the bright side I am hopeful that I will go to heaven hand in hand with my beautiful wife now of 26 years when the Lord calls us home.

    For me it reads like this words come from a higher consciousness. Like a father talking to his children, perhaps god to us!? Interesting short read, thanks for sharing.
