Interesting reply Lou. It sounds like we have some things in common. You wrote "For it has been revealed to me that that God's will is to have what is in heaven to be here on earth." I have taken the belief of "On Earth as it is in Heaven" to heart, and try to practice it in my life daily. I often pray that this actually occurs moreso, because I want "Heaven on Earth" RIGHT NOW..lol. I want to see the wars stop, the hunger gone, the poverty erased, the sick cured, etc. I am not much of a believer that we should rush through all our lives for the "Kingdom". I've lost a lot in my life, including a child and a wife, and I don't believe God put me through so much pain if it was as simple as "Everything will be alright in the end." Maybe you and others disagree, and that is perfectly fine. But, considering the trauma I went through, that millions go through who lose children, families, etc, etc, it is a deeply dark experience that moreso resembles a "Hell", Lou. Through the experience of many loving, open arms of people with unconditional love, I was able to get my Faith back. And I still do have some "days" where I fall to pieces, but I know now I have some hope to get back up again. Anyhow...thanks for listening..
