I just looked at the email just now and a dear cruising friend from 1978 in Hawaii, had just sent us:
Aloha Dave and. Janet … You are both in my prayers. Stay in touch please.
I want to share my reply to her
Aloha! Thank you so much. We are showered in wonderful prayers and yet Janet is being taken away. Therefore, we have finally realized that there must be strong reasons this is really SUPPOSED to happen.
When we started at the Reno Integrative Medical Center here in Reno, NV here, the Dr. gave Janet some affirmations.
1. I accept the messages and timing of the Universe and proceed confidently in my life
2. I am one with Divine Love
3. I see beauty in all parts of my body
As I say, there must be something really important to take her away from us right now with so many praying for her. We are trying to live these affirmations, but it is not easy. We had so many plans.
Also, I am sure you will enjoy the book summarized very well on this link
We bough the book and love it.
A Hospice Nurse that we told about “Proof Of Heaven” said that “Heaven Is For Real” is also wonderful. It is about a little boy’s Near Death Experience.
Books like this must be the Early Birds in the predicted new age of enlightenment.
Janet is still with us and often lucid. She still says that she is very comfortable, so we are clearly blessed.
Dave & Janet
PS: Below is a wonderful poem that we first saw in “Proof OF Heaven”.
When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
By David Romano
When tomorrow starts without me,
and I’m not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things
we didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me,
as much as I love you,
And each time you think of me,
I know you’ll miss me, too.
But when tomorrow starts without me,
please try and understand,
That an angel came and called my name
and took me by the hand,
And said my place was ready
in heaven far above,
And that I’d have to leave behind
all those I dearly love.
But as I turned to walk away,
a tear fell from my eye,
For all my life I’d always thought
I didn’t want to die.
I had so much to live for
and so much yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible
that I am leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays,
the good ones and the bad,
I thougth of all the love we shared
and all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday,
I thought, just for a while,
I’d say good-bye and kiss you
and maybe see your smile.
But then I fully realized
that this could never be.
For emptiness and memories
would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things
that I’d miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did,
my heart was filled with sorrow.
But when I walked through heaven’s gates,
I felt so much at home.
When God look down and smiled at me,
from His great golden throne.
He said, “This is eternity
and all I’ve promised you,
Today your life on earth is past,
but here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow,
but today will always last,
And since each day’s the same day,
there’s no longing for the past.
But you have been so faithful,
so trusting and so true,
Though there were times you did some things
you knew you shouldn’t do.
But you have been forgiven,
and now at last your free.
So won’t you take my hand
and share my life with me?”
So when tomorrow starts without me,
don’t think we’re far apart,
For everytime you think of me,
I’m right here in your heart.
My favorite Dr. Seuss quote so far:
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
