Here and Hereafter, the Eternity Connection
From Joy Ibsen:
What are we doing here?
What do we know about the hereafter?
I didn’t intend to write a memoir—that was an accident. I wanted to share some stories about what I’ve learned about life from the experiences I’ve had with death– from the time I was a child until now in my late adult years. Also, I wanted to share glimpses I have experienced of afterlife; the connections between here and hereafter are illusive and fascinating.
These are real-life stories that have given me some glimpses of eternity, but more than that, they’ve helped me understand more about life. Life is real! Life is fantastic!
Here and Hereafter is about life-endings from different causes––illness, accidents, poor judgment, suicide, alcoholism, assassination, old age. The characters are real people who have been important to me, including a neighbor baby, my childhood friend, a college student, a ghetto seer, my ex-husband, my father, mother, grandparents, civil rights leader, minister, patriarch, poet, politician and also my dog.
It may sound sad, but there is a lot of joy in this book!
I invite you to take a look for yourself…
