Shadows come and go. You turn to look at whoever is staring at you. No one is there. A smell, a scent of perfume, tobacco, or food stirs a memory as it fills the room.Some think it becomes thinner at Halloween. Others say it has become thinner over the past decade. Then there are those who push spirits aside. “When you take your last breath that’s it–you’re gone, no heaven, no hell,” they say.
Others Say“Someone sits at the foot of the bed. It’s my husband–I smell the Old Spice cologne and love that he watches over me.”
How do we know?It’s great that we do our own thinking and have our own beliefs. That’s the way it should be. I confess that I believe in spirits. I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve not only felt them, I’ve seen a couple. Good thing I wasn’t living in the 1690s. Seriously, even though we have our own take on the Other Side, Life after Death, or whether or not it exists–how do we know for sure? We can listen to others, attend church, accept what others say and draw our own conclusions, but how do we know if we’re right? We won’t until it happens.
- If we go to heaven, we’ll undoubtedly love it
- If hell is as bad as it’s described we’ll probably hate it
- If there is no after life, we won’t know and it won’t matter
