Where all live in love in the moment.
My 6th Secret to Life is to live this life knowing that it is only the opening act to eternity. What seems so real—and heaven so unreal—to most, is just a blip to eternity. Knowing there is an eternal heaven helps put this life in so much clearer perspective. It makes it happier, and makes us more fulfilled and peaceful, if we just believe.
Have a great day!
