My friend died. His wife of over 50 years is sad. They had a wonderful life together. But she is okay, because she knows that death is a part of living. And she knows that he will be in another place, with no pain. He is waiting for her.
What a difference between her and those who lose a loved one and don’t think there is a life after this. Or that they will burn in hell for an eternity because of some loophole in the Godcodes.
I know there is a God who loves us. And this life is where we prepare to go back to Him. So I try to keep the focus. So when I die, people will be sad, but not grieve. Grief is knowing they are in a worse place. Sadness is missing them, but knowing they are in a better place.
