Welcome Wagon

When my Mom died back in November, I had her mail forwarded to my address so that I could continue to handle her affairs.  Envelopes began trickling Northward from her former home in Florida to mine here in Pennsylvania. Last week a bulkier package arrived that many of you have seen if ever you have moved from one community to another. It included info and coupons for local services. The words that danced upon it were Welcome Wagon; the purpose of which is to help folks feel at at home in their new digs. 

It set me to wondering whether there is a Celestial Welcome Wagon when we depart this home for our new HOME wherever it is.  I hear tell from those who have had near death experiences and returned to share their experiences, that they were greeted by loved ones who showed them around and helped them (albeit briefly) adust to their arrival. I have heard descriptions of what things are like ‘on the other side’. (I use quotation marks, since I am relating only what I have heard, read or seen in movies)

I would like to think that loved ones come to the stepping off point to hold out open arms and heart. In one of my favorite movies, called “Made In Heaven”, the character Mike Shea played by Timothy Hutton is greeted upon his death by his Aunt Lisa played by Maureen Stapleton.  He lands in her apartment that she has created in her own mind, overlooking the Eiffel Tower. In life, she had wanted to be a painter, so that was the reality she envisioned for herself. She encouraged Mike to visualize what he wanted and where he chose to go and then ta-da! He was there as well.

In this moment, I ask those of you who may have had near death experiences  (NDE) to feel free to share your time and memories of what you encountered.  What was your welcome to heaven like?
