Death: the way to eternal bliss

we have a long weekend for “All souls’ day”, and as expected, tv shows mostly are about Halloween, spooky movies and movies about dying or dead people, so i am now sitting here pondering about death.

how do you see death? is it a beginning or an ending? as described in the poem “Death be not proud” by John Donne (read poem here), it is thought of as a dreadful thing but actually is something not to be fearful about, and to be accepted as one that will bring us to eternal bliss. For Christian believers, death is just the beginning as well as it is the ending.

yes, dying is something definite in one’s life, even in my mother’s, and i am so aware that she is almost being snatched away by death, in each day of her struggle to live. yes, i welcome death in this situation, as i know, Mama will awaken into eternal happiness and pain free life, and that thought gives me so much comfort and peace…

2 Corinthians 5:8
“Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord.”

as i wait for death’s final knock on Mama’s hospital room door, i shall look to it as my slave, i shall welcome it with the blessed assurance of my mama’s final destination, and that is to live with the Lord God in heaven, “where death shall be no more….”
