The Portal to Paradise

“Death is a departure, the jail delivery of a long prisoner, the sleep of thy body, and a wakening of thy soul, the way to bliss, the gate of life, the portal to paradise. …Death is the workman sent by the Father to pull down this earthly house of mortality and clay, that it may be set up anew, infinietely more lasting, beautiful, and glorious. …It is the untying of the knot betwixt body and soul.  It is true they part, but, as friends going two several ways, shake hands till they return from their journey; they are as sure of meeting again as of parting; for thy soul shall return laden with the wealth of heaven, and fetch his old companion to the participation of all his joy and happiness.”  –George Swinnock “Works of GS” Vol. 4 p. 49-50

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
