Heaven

Had the first of 2 New Year's parties last night... a mild affair consisting of members of my church community.

Food was great. We had turkey, quiche, satay (500 sticks were ordered... Brother Edwin.. what in the world were you thinking? *grin*).... delectable Christmas and Carrot cakes.. Israeli wine..

It was a good night.

One thing sticks in my mind though. In the midst of the conversations, one of the brothers had mentioned that someone he had known just passed away. The interesting thing is that at exactly the same time that he passed away, his daughter and his sister simultaneously saw a man in white (with wings, no less) leading the (just deceased) man away. After he had walked a short distance, the man turned, and serenely waved his daughter a goodbye wave.

*wow*

Sometimes we need a nudge like this to remind us that our time here on Earth is just a stopover.

Yes, we all need a reminder like that to put things in perspective.
