The Other Side Of Heaven

Hey, how have you been?

This post is dedicated to Sandee of Comedy Plus, her "hubby," whose heartfelt post inspired me, and to their little dog "Little Bit," who they lost recently. Please stop by Comedy Plus, if you haven't already, and read Sandee's husbands post. 

 The Other Side Of  Heaven                                                  

We often think of going to heaven, but we seldom consider the fact that heaven comes to us.  I think it’s because we’re not paying attention to the gifts we see around us every day.
For example, people say “money doesn’t grow on trees,” when, in fact, we have oranges, apples, and the other kind of foods that literally fall from our trees, not the grocery store.

Obviously, I do know what people mean when they use that expression, it’s because man discovered long ago to charge for their hard work at harvesting their crops, plants, etc…   But, you get my point, money does grow on trees, and, in fact, it’s a gift from heaven and a gift that will keep on giving.

And I believe that after our animals or the people we love pass they return and show themselves in a different form, just to let us know they’re on the other side of heaven and will see us soon.

People also say that nothing is free, it’s another expression that simply isn’t true, for example, love is free. I believe we were born to live, love, and teach each other many things, the most of which is love, but the noise we experience in our daily routines gets in the way.
However, animals do not hear the noise, so they allow their spirits to love freely, unbounded by the restrictions us humans require of one another.

I believe domesticated animals are heaven sent perhaps to teach us how to live a life of joy, love, compassion and loyalty to the ones we love, without judgment.  

So, go hug your animal today, and if you do not have a pet, hug a person you love.
And for those of you, who, like my friend Sandee and her husband have just lost a dear friend, hug someone you know you may also be grieving a pet, and help them remember the things their pets came here to teach them.

Because, as I mentioned they are sent to remind us how to live richer lives.  

Show them that they taught you well, and you will gain strength from the treasures they gave you and remember you will see them again. -'Cause after all we're on the other side of heaven.-

God bless  “Little Bit” Sandee, and Hubby.

Well, you're more than welcome my dear friend. My thoughts and prayers have been with you and your husband for some time now, and I was deeply touched by the post he wrote.

You have a terrific day or rather evening too. Sorry for the belated reply.

Huge hugs back to you and Simon will be pleased that you sent him scritches.

That was such a wonderful post that Zane wrote about their Little Bit. And we agree there are lots of free things in this world. And animals are the best in the world. They give lots of love freely. Have a great day.

Motherhood- Courage

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons






Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Ann Clemmons

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Catch your dreams


Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"
