In this life there are many things to prepare for, but the most important is for our entrance into the kingdom of heaven. I will take you with me, should you want to come along, on my personal journey to the door which will lead to eternity, through which every soul must pass. Where the angel of death waits to ask the all important question, "Are you prepared for the Kingdom?"

Two years ago I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I was one of the fortunate ones who survived surgery along with chemo/radiation treatments. Recently, it was discovered that the cancer had returned and although I am again on chemotherapy, in all probability I have perhaps one more year to live. During these last months I would like to share what I have learned about the most important thing we'll ever do in this life and that is, prepare for the kingdom of God.

Thanks to All

I would like to thank all of you who have shared Laura's journey and have supported her with your encouragement and prayers. I trust she is smiling upon us all from Heaven. It has been a long and difficult journey, but if she has attained eternal happiness, that is all that matters. Soon I will be working on her book, which I hope will be ready by the end of this year, or perhaps the beginning of next year. In any case, I will let you know. This blog will remain active indefinitely for those who want to continue to reflect on the mystery of the approach to eternity, but all of her writings (and some additional material, including my own commentary and personal reminiscences) will be incorporated into the book.
