What's On the Other Side?

I received this in an e-mail post today and just had to post it. I was so touched and blessed by it. I hope you all find it that way as well.


Death
What a Wonderful Way to Explain it!

A sick man turned to his doctor as he was preparing to
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're, a Christian man,
And don't know what's 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.'



May today there be peace within you.

May you trust God that you are exactly

Where you are meant to be.

You have such a beautiful blog.

Oh, and Thank you for the 'sneeze blessings' - LOL - I'm not quite sure how to refer to that...but I appreciate it all the same.

WOW! That is a great testimony of faith - that is, the doctor's message!

I feel overwhelmed with joy at this moment, simply by having read this insightful view, of what's to come, through His promise.

Amen.

Great post!

Hi! I'm Grace said...

Beautiful post, Tammy. That is what I like being here, you gave me inspiration to share the goodness of God to others.
By the way, thank you for your words of prayer for my husband. As the Bible says, "The (your) prayer of the righteous avails much." And that is why God hears your prayer. My husband is stable and home with us now. I thank God with all my heart. He deserves the highest praise.

Oh Grace, I'm so happy to hear he is doing better. Sure hope he has a full recovery real soon. I'll continue to pray for him.

God Bless you all! Remember, the Glory is all for Him.
