A Wonderful Way to Explain DEATH

A sick man turned to his doctor as he was preparing to   death1

leave the examination room and said,  

Doctor, I am afraid to die.


Tell me what lies on the other side.’


Very quietly, the doctor said, ‘I don’t know.’


‘You don’t know?  You, a Christian man,


Do not know what is on the other side?’


The doctor was holding the handle of the door; 


On the other side came a sound of scratching and whining, 


And as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room


And leaped on him with an eager show of gladness.


Turning to the patient, the doctor said,


‘Did you notice my dog?


He’s never been in this room before.


He didn’t know what was inside.


He knew nothing except that his master was here,


And when the door opened,  he sprang in without fear. 


I know little of what is on the other side of death, 


But I do know one thing…


I know my Master is there and that is enough.’

    I am once again blessed by this post. We should not worry about death. Why? as long as were prepared and we know that we will be in heaven then that’s great! We will see the Lord and be with Him in His paradise. So, we should not be worry when somebody will say, “See you in heaven” because we all go there. ^_^

    God is so good because everyday I take the risk of being in danger, or getting into an accident, or running into a bad person. But I trusted him with my life, and I know that He will not abandon me as He has never left me in harm’s way. 🙂 It’s just a matter of trusting one’s faith 🙂

    great to have stumbles upon this inspiring post.
    my just 7 y.o daughter kept having bad dreams lately. and soon after, she kept telling me, she’s afraid to die. her fears were alleviated all the more by seeing relatives, neighbors, who recently died…last night, she was crying and tells me…”mommy, will you die also…i don’t want you to die…who’s gonna take care of me…”
    i used to read her stories (fairytales, which is her fave) before sleeping, pero lately, we read children’s bible stories…explaining, little by little, about God and His creations….(dpa rin maubos ang tanong at FEARS nia. i know kids go through this stage….
