~ Short story: Visit to Heaven ~

Before the 12th day of the the 12th month of 2012, never did it cross my mind tht the world was going to end. I had heard the Mayans talk about the 24th, but I didn't believe in that! I didn't predict it, but the weekend before I had heard Tanya talking about the Second Advent. She described how the sinners will be going to Hell, and the dead will rise again. At the time, I thought it was all swell. Before I heard about it, I had no idea that there was as alternative to Hell, unforsakeably, now I do! Never dreamed I would ever commit to a faith, but sometimes you have to go by your heart.

It was funny. Just a coupld of days ago I was wondering where I belong? Now I know.

It is the night of the 11th of December. We had the news on, but we were not listening. It was snowing. Beautiful. Then we heard something from the news that captured my attention. Intense flooding. Nothing that new, since Cyclone Annie had just wiped out our home. But something to worry about. I was considering moving to some place in Australia... "Intense flooding in all areas ... as far as we can tell, it will happen all over the globe ... will keep you updated" I was not sure what to think.

Next day at around 9:30 a.m. The lights turned off, which is pretty normal in this area of suburban L.A. Then I went outside to tackle with the electricity box. Nothing. I went inside to bake a cake.. wasn't going to waste my time on stuff not needed, as it was still sunny.

10:45, another report on the flooding. This time, we were amazed to see a video of what it could be like. It seemed to me that whatever was happening, would result in a million casualties. My god, what is this??

12:00. What on earth, water flooding the roads. Keeps rising nonstop!! This is extraordinary, reminds me of Noah and the Ark, I am pretty sure that's what the story was called. Heard it at Sunday School before my parents split. CANNOT BELIEVE THIS.

1:00. I have no idea where all this water is coming from. I am unusually calm, wierd..

2:00 I have this feeling inside of me that we will all be safe. The water continues rising, and Dave, my husband, had the idea to get to the hill. If we can make it. Luckily, we are not in the valley. Feel sorry for those who are! What are we going to do on the hill? Better than waiting here..

On the hilltop, and you can not imagine what we can see!! This is OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!! Water is everywhere!! People are everywhere!! How on earth are we going to be safe??

2:15pm. The water is uncontrolable!! Just as my ankles were going to reach the water, a small unearthly whole appeared below us. Wierd.. Now I start to panic. Here's for nothing, and we jump.

5:15pm. What happened just before was amazing! All of us just kept falling, and falling, for at least an hour I think. We started hearing angelic music, which you cannot describe. Nothing to pop, or jazz. Then we saw people on clouds, no, angels with wings. One came toward each of us. He took us by the hand, and it felt like nothing earthly. I had no doubt where we were heading, and I felt like I could trust my life with this being.

My angel took me to a gate, the golden gate that you hear about in movies and others. But nothing to what you have ever seen. It was AMAZING!! Beside the gate, there was a stand, with a book, the biggest book I had ever seen. There was noone there, and when I turned to look, the angel had gone, and the cloud I was standing on just led to sky. A voice, the most holiest voice, which I instantly knew was God, was sounded across the cloud. Although I could see no body, his voice said instantly that I was welcomed to His heavenly dwelling. He materialised, and his hand was outstreched to me. I took it in mine, and he wlked me through the golden streets.

He handed me a key, with some kind of chuckle, and told me where to go, again chuckling. His chickle reminded me of thunder, but of ourse there could not be thunder in heaven.. He then said that he had to leave to welcome a new Son or Dauter of his. I could say nothing. My lips were somehow sealed, or maybe in His presense you just can't talk. I started left, where He said, and then straight, passing awesome water fountains, and buildings. I looked up, and there was no sky. There was just clouds. Angels were all gathered around in the sky, watching over all of us. I was just wondering how I will find my home when.. WHOOSH, I say the Badham's courtyard. I remember passing the Abrahem's home, and then went straight to Badham. And I could remember every detail of my life, even my dreams. A dream, one were I was in a world full of Mummy's and Daddy's and fluffy bunnies:)

The Badham courtyard lead off to other courtyards, like Power, for my aunt, and Corset for my other aunt. The levels of the apartment went up for as far as I could see, and that is saying something, since my eyesight was so much clearer. Then I saw the house imprinted with my name on the door, so I went in. Now I know why God chuckled when he handing me my key. No need for keys in Heaven!!

The house was filled with everything, and anything that you could ever wish for, well what I could ever wish for.

I am sitting in the drawing room now, my room is huge!! And we each have an angel in our house!!! I could see the most grandest piano in the corner, and the largest kitchen, in the world.. wait.. haha, on the opposite side of the room. There was stairs leading to other rooms, and when I went upstairs I found a corridor leading off to my mothers and fathers rooms. And on the other side, my brothers. It was amazingly, beautifully, wonderful.

This is where I belong.
