Christmas in Heaven

iUniverse, Dec 15, 2005 - Biography & Autobiography - 178 pages
This book tells the true story of the tragic, unexpected death of my daughter Laura on Christmas Eve.

During her twenty-one years of life, I always tried to protect her. Her death made me feel so helpless. I was at the mercy of the unknown. This cancer-eating pain in my heart was destroying me.

She was not of earth anymore, so now I began to desperately search all of creation to find her. I could not rest until I had answers.

Did I really need to find God?

Do angels really come and assist us?

Do miracles really happen?

Do dreams really take you into another dimension?

Was Laura trying to reach out to me beyond the boundaries of death?

I was bewildered to see the hustle and bustle of the world survived the death of my daughter. Why did she have to die? Was she alive in another dimension, or was she just dead? A child cannot die and expect a mother to live. Then I attended an apparition of Blessed Mother which changed my life. Through this conversion of faith that I attained, I found answers, and the pieces of the puzzle started to fit together.

Page xi - Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles ? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit ; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Page xii - But I say to you, Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you : and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you : That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven, who maketh his sun to rise upon the good, and bad, and raineth upon the just and the unjust.
