The Greatest Joy



 
Another odd dream last night…I was sitting on top of a ladder doing some repair work on the roof when I suddenly lost my balance and began falling off the ladder. I was expecting a heavy and painful impact but instead I closed my eyes and I floated to the ground, the concrete driveway soft like a pillow. Just as I touched down, the phone rang again and I woke up. What is the connection between all these dreams and the phone ringing to wake me up? Well, that is for others to sort out. Perhaps death is similar to these odd dreams. We expect the worst, but who can say that death may not be the ultimate joy? Death is to life what water is to the stone.
