Death End?

"Time is the best teacher, unfortunately it kills all its students".

I think I might never get used to death, but I'm not talking about my own death, but the death of a family member, a friend or even an acquaintance.

Yesterday I found out that somebody that I knew passed away, and although I haven't seen him in years I can't help but feel sadden by the news and specially to imagine what his family is going through in this difficult time. Because that is the part I dread the most, thinking when the time of loosing somebody close to me is going to come.

But, don't get me wrong I am not scared of death or myself dying, is more about spending life without the people I love so much, but I guess part of that love is to rejoice when they are finally passing to a better life close to God. It is still hard to accept it.

So, I wonder, what will happen to my blog when I am gone? If it stays here for years after I am gone, I wonder what people will think about my life, about what I liked, if they will have things in common with me?  Sometimes when I browse around blogs that have not being updated in months, perhaps years, I wonder where the person is and if they are still alive, maybe if I leave a comment, it will never reach the author cause it's long gone...

So, what about my email account? My passwords? Should I write them down and keep them in a safe box with access only with a lawyer after I am gone? But what for? so people can see the remaining balance on my paypal account, which is probably less than a $100 us? Or so they can see all my past Amazon orders and what my wish list contained? Where do all these stuff ends up?

Anybody out there has any idea about any of this?

My grandfather always used to say, "The end of world is when you die", well, I am not sure, cause he died when I was 10 and the world is still around...

Anyway, just some food for thought... Have a wonderful alive Wednesday!!!

Because I believe in Heaven and a life after death, I look forward to that time. However, when I was younger I still struggled to wrap my head around it all. As you grow older and closer in your own walk with the Lord, it is likely you will gain peace in this area, as I did!

BTW: I am thankful to come by here and blessed when I do!


PS: Hope my comment makes sense and is not even more confusing.

I don't believe that life ends when our time here is over. I believe like Andrea that our eternal destiny is not tied to this planet but our home for believers in Jesus Christ will be heaven and for those that refuse there is only no other choice. I am hoping so many people come to know God before they breathe their final breath.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Thank you Kat & Andrea, I hope to be and feel closer to God before he calls me. I know he is around me everyday and that life doesn't end with death, still the part about losing a loved one is pretty hard to accept. Again, thank you both for your kind words that mean so much to me, God bless!
