This is where I'm tempted to write a "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus" type message. If you have doubts, Jacobsings, then it might be best to lessen your fears by turning off the TV. Not only do the commercials annoy me, but the fear of death appears to be an underlying message in a lot of shows. Fearing death is a waste of time. It's based on our fear of the unknown. It's better to prepare ourselves so that we can go gracefully. I had a bad experience with my NDE in the very beginning, but once I acknowledged God it became very beautiful. There are angels who are ready to lift you up into a realm of love where your mother is waiting for you. Every emotion we carry with us on earth is wiped away, except for love.
Don't let your fears define who you are here on earth...try to expand your love instead.
