Bear Facts

As far as I know, nothing is as inevitably constant as death.

We cannot bank with any assurance on any of “life’s” adventures. Most often we haven’t a clue what’s around the next corner. We frequently wing it when it comes right down to it. Discovery is inspiration for the wandering soul.

Not so with death. As far as we can tell from our living perspective, death stops us in our tracks.

But does it really?

Many of us think not. But as far as I know, we have very little physical evidence to support a life after death scenario. We only have a few eyewitness accounts of Jesus written down on ancient paper. We have to put a lot of physical weight on that paper to maintain our hope for a physical life after death.

As far as I know, Jesus Christ is the only human that has ever had a physical, on this earth, living presence after death. Honestly, that’s not a whole lot of physical to go on. He, as far as I know, only appeared for a very short time way back when his physical earthly friends were still alive.

And I understand that Jesus won’t physically return to Earth until God’s ready to end it.

What comprises the most weight for an afterlife… is faith. Faith that Jesus’s resurrection account is truth. And that we can follow Him if we believe and act on that faith… “Act” being the key.

Actions alongside faith is the key to Heaven… as far as I know.

Heaven is death’s living realm if you have the key… as far as I know.

As far as I know, dead folks that I’ve loved are helping me through this life. Angels if you will. Bent on helping others. It’s just a feeling I get when I think about them. Purely spiritual. Purely faith. Purely love.

Personally, I don’t believe that death is the end. I believe that death is a very happy, good, and wonderful new adventure that awaits us on the other side of life.

Keep on the sunny side!

That’s all I got.

God’s got the rest…

Except for some unavoidable honey-dos, I pretty much goof off for a living now. My last career job was designing internet operating circuit boards along with a distinguished team of engineers, managers and support personnel. Prior to that I was an electronics technician evolving into circuit board design in the defense industry working with tactical missile systems. My first career job was a professional artist. During my younger years I worked many odd jobs beginning at age nine with a newspaper delivery route.
