During a discussion at church last night, a parishioner shared her near death experience and how much she wanted to stay in heaven and how irritated she was with our Creator Christ for assigning her more time on terra firma.  The length of time irritated and the degree of irritation were striking in illustrating how gorgeous life with Christ in heaven will be.  Light, Beauty, and Overwhelming Warmth of Love, are all common descriptions of near death experiences.  It’s really something to actually hear someone describe it in person and we have two people that I know of in our parish who have lived this.

Then goes my mind to thinking about Father Cole’s oft asserted assertion that heaven is here now, it has begun.  With Christ visiting earth we have begun heaven on earth.  So we can experience the beauty of these near death experiences every day here now if we open up to the Overwhelming LLJJ: Light, Love, and Joy of Jesus, God, and The Holy Spirit for each and every person with each and every breath.

When we do, this Wave of Wonder Overwhelms the challenges, hurdles, troubles, and pains we are pondering.

I Love You and so does Jesus, God, and The Holy Spirit along with Mother Mary, Saint Joseph, Saint Francis, Saint Frances, Your Guardian Angel, all the Holy Angels, and all the Holy Saints.
