it is true. when one member of the Body suffers, all does.
i was at the wake when i saw people hugging and crying. and my eyes found it's way unto the body in the coffin, which looked so stiff and i nearly burst into tears because death is just terrifying. yet he probably knew that heaven was just a wink away and that's just totally sweet.
there're times when i'll visualize in my head that i'm on my deathbed yet i'm not afraid, not upset, just joyful because i'm a few moments from God, Himself. i could tell myself and everyone around me that i've lived a life worthy of living, a life that God wants me to live. i think that's perfect.
