I know it’s just a matter of time and it will be my turn to leave. The older I get the more aware I am of that fact.
My friend Joe has noticed the same thing that I have when it comes to death. However, Joe becomes very uncomfortable discussing the topic of death and usually tries to avoid it at all costs.
Joe asked me, “How do you stay so calm when discussing death? It makes me nervous and anxious.”
“Why do you think it does that??”
“Because of the unknown. Nobody knows for sure what it’s like. Death is like going behind a thick veil and I don’t know what’s on the other side. How do you deal with it?”
“Well even though I don’t know exactly what’s on the other side, I do know Who is on the other side and that makes all the difference.”
