Theme Song.

Have you ever wondered what it sounds like when you die? If there's music or sound in general, or if it's just a woosh of the wind and you're there. I thought for years that there would at least be a chorus of something playing as I move from this world to that and for years I imagined the song being Kenneth Copes Alleluia. I wanted that song for everyone and even learned it on the piano to play at the funeral of my loved ones. That was back when I thought I would have been a stronger person to be able to do it.

One of my VT sisters lives across the road with her husband and their kids. She has been ill for a while now. We all grew up together. I am closer with her husband than I am with her because we've been neighbors since birth. I am her Visiting Teacher and he is my Home Teacher. I have a lot of admiration for them because I have been where they are now.

She is pretty amazing. I've only come to learn this since I began Visiting Teaching her and when she shared with me her experienced perception of life after death, the only adjective she used was, "Wonderful", but she said it with such compassion and tenacity that I was left a little envious.

There is an energy in our ward that we need to tap to access. I didn't know what it was until I visited my assigned homes yesterday with fudge. It was confirmed when I had dinner with my brothers and their families. It was broadcast to the world back in 1967 by a self proclaimed Atheist.
All you need is Love.

Even though I made it to church late because of daylight savings (spring forward) and the fact that I set my alarm for PM instead of AM, I enjoyed church again this week. I appreciate the people who stay to fulfill their callings making it easier for the primary to flow.

Heads up to the angels who come for me when it's my time to go. If you can add this song to my spirit world playlist, I promise not to krump all the way up Heavens stairs.
