Hello one and all,
That is my new salutation. Okay, first, let me thank you for coming by to see what is new. James is taking the lead in his re-introducing his drawings while I and others bring you new messages. As I understand it, James is creating some new illustrations based on 'The Stars Still Shine: An Afterlife Journey' book I authored several years ago. I don't know exactly what his plans are but he has been working on some pictures that show glimpses of what occurred in the book. Apparently, Michael said he saw no one wearing wings or halos but James places wings and halos in this work simply to identify where they are. I won't say anymore and will let him show you his work.
It's been a few years since I have published something new. I'll tell you a little story of something that actually happened to me. Its not a work of fiction but what happened here not long ago in Heaven.
I was out walking my dog one early morning. I have had a dog for a few months now. So, as I was walking Scotty, he began to bark. I was still on my property and he was staring into the woods. I have a forest of evergreens. As we were about to enter the woods, another dog appeared. Scotty stopped barking. The two dogs sniffed each other mostly around their faces and head. I asked the new dog out loud, "Where did you come from?" The dog looked up at me and wagged its tale. The doberman was well behaved. It then started walking back into the woods. Scotty began to follow and I had to follow because of his leash. We walked for about five minutes in the woods then stopped at a large tree that appeared to have fallen some time ago; It was well covered in moss and had a rather large trunk. The doberman led us behind the felled tree to a rather large cavern or hole that looked to be large enough for a bear or something of similar size to enter. The doberman jumped into the cavern and disappeared. Scotty began to make his way in also but I pulled him back. "No, you're not going in there! And I don't think I can fit in there also." For several minutes I was preventing Scotty from entering. Finally, the doberman returned and had a large bone in his or her mouth. I thought, "Uh, oh, some large animal died in there then I thought, wait a minute. No, why would the dog bring out a large bone here?" The doberman walked to me, looked up and dropped the bone in front of me. Both dogs looked at me as to say, "Aren't you going to pick it up with your teeth? I thought about it. (smiling) But no, I picked it up with my hands to have a closer look. The bone was old. My impression was it was from a bull. There was nothing out of the ordinary about it but the dogs certainly put a lot of importance in what they find. I thanked the dogs. I can see just how important it is for me to acknowledge the discovery by patting them and showing how proud I was. If nothing else, dogs have the same pride as they do on Earth. The master is their best friend and dogs need the master's approval and love at all times. So, that is my little story. I know you are asking; What happened to the doberman? The dog ran home--wherever home is. I think it belongs to a neighbor. Perhaps I will see the dog again someday. No, I am sure I will see the dog again some day. I think Scotty has met our new friend beforehand; they got along very well which is not always the case with dogs.
Enjoy the first installment! Go fetch a bone with your dog or your neighbor's dog.
