Marriage is fulfilled in Heaven

When looking within I usually find myself in a house, a small circle of consciousness in a dark house. I have always wondered at the darkness. I frequently felt Pat’s presence and thought she should show up as another bright circle of consciousness.  And there was the Presence of God, surely if present in me, He should be a light lighting the whole house.  Well this morning only half awake and still dreaming, my inner house was filled with a bright cloud brightening the whole house so I could see all. Pat and I walked together through this newly lit house, hand in hand pressed together. In some deep way we were praising God and ourselves being One.  Thought linked with thought, dream linked with dream, image to image linked with God.  Death hasn’t beaten us! Love has set all the doors wide open and we could see all eternity and we were free!  I stare into her green/grey eyes and see paradise has now united God, her, and me; us as One profoundly searching, opening, asking, yielding as we did on our wedding day. Our two lives drawn together forever. What does this morning dream mean?  This is our house and now we know each other forever. This is where we live and never die. We are still one because Christ’s Victory has fulfilled our marriage in Heaven. As St. Paul said: “And now these three remain Faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love (1 Cor 13:13) Only LOVE is eternal.

Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Sonic, a very friendly ginger tabby. My beloved wife died January 7, 2017 and our 19 year old cat Pooka died January 8, 2017. I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.
