Each day we all take, one step closer to Heaven. Death has no boundaries. Wouldn't we hope it did? Yet no matter our age, health or how much money we own, when death knocks at our door there is no bargaining.
This is a delicate subject, one that is shied away from. We all prefer to remain in our comfort zone, on Terra Firma.
Raymond Moodys book "Life after life" delves into scienfic, medical and spiritual aspects of out of the body experiences. Ian McCormack was a young man with a Christian mother who was so busy enjoying his life that God was non existant to him. The frightening story of his near death experience may be watched on YouTube.
So what do you choose to believe?
A man sat in a barbers chair. While he had his hair cut the barber continued on and on with his rendition of, if there was a God....
"If so," he argued, "Why does He let all the horros and tragedies happen?
And because He does," the barber concluded, "I don't believe in Him!"
What could the man say? He finished having his hair cut and then left the shop. As soon as he walked into the street he spotted a man with dirty matted hair and beard.
Returning to the Barbers he said..............
"I don't believe in barbers, for if they were real I wouldn't see a man in the street who badly needs his hair and beard groomed!"
"How can you say that!" replied the barber. "I can't help it if people refuse to come to me!"
"Thats right," answered the man, "God didn't make us robots. He gave us choices."
The first man adam....brought sin and death into the world.
The last man Jesus...brought Eternal Life. (The Bible)

ONE STEP CLOSER TO HEAVEN....
An author since 2012 and retired Specialist Registered Nurse. I reside in sub-tropical Queensland, Australia, with my American husband Raymond and our two little dogs. Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens. We are reminded through our faith in Jesus that He will, "Turn our Mourning into Dancing and our Sorrow into Joy." Psalms 30:11. Having personally experienced tough times I know, there is truely no gain without pain. B.N (Aus) B.S.N (U.S.A) Bible College Graduate. Lover of People. WORK PLACE HISTORY... 1.
