joy-in-heaven
On October 16, 2008—the day after my husband, Stephen, passed away from colon cancer—I awoke in the morning with the words “There is joy in heaven” singing out from my heart. Here is how I described the feeling:

I am ecstatic in the joy of Stephen’s liberation. Surely all of heaven celebrates his victory! I am enfolded in his happiness and love as his gratitude comes flooding back to me from just beyond the veil. I feel my heart opening with an energy that is both in me and around me—buoying me up, reconnecting me to Stephen’s heart. I am full to overflowing in the exultation of my beloved. He has made it to the Other Side and now sends me back a taste of his new world.¹
