Live Forever how to

God made me laugh!

Recapping


Previous posts summarised

This blog is about living forever and before I continue I will recap what the previous posts were all about.

 Explanation of the concept of living forever

It is with Adam and Eve that the concept of living forever was explained to humanity. Adam and Eve taught us that disobedience to our maker gets us in big trouble, so much so that they were both thrown out of the garden of Eden as a result of their disobedience.

Obedience brings blessings

God gave Sarah and Abraham a son in their old age and this made both of them laugh. Abraham was blessed because he obeyed God. The same with Noah and Joshua and Caleb.

 How to obtain ongoing happiness

How to obtain ongoing happiness is linked with living forever because it is in the giving and in the losing, not in the getting nor obtaining in this world, that happiness and eternal life are achieved. This is also addressed on my page God Hath Made Me To Laugh! There are some great links on this page with regards to happiness.

 The greeting of living forever

The greeting of Living Forever is a royal one and I pray for all my readers to be living forever.

 Americans stand a better chance to get to heaven

Beats me, why Americans stand a better chance to get to heaven, but it appears to be, at least, mathematically correct.

 Never ever give up! 

The never ever give up address is one of my favourite talks given by Naval Admiral William H. McRaven at the University of Texas at Austin. I believe that, to achieve anything in life that’s worth achieving, we’ll need to apply the tenacity spoken about by the Admiral. I’ve fought for my life and begged for my life to be restored to me and God is good and is answering my prayers and I’m so stoked that I want you all to know about it and laugh with me.

 Thank you and dedication

The thank you and dedication post as well as the, Why A Blog On Living Forever? posts explains who I am talking to about living forever and you’re very welcome to listen in.

 Our baptism

Our baptism story relays our attempts to get baptised and what Jesus says about being born again.

 Is there a church heaven?

If there is a church heaven then people who hang out with their church buddies may already be living in paradise and the rest of us will just have to figure out what the go is for us. According to scripture, obedience to God is closely related to living forever.

 The LORD bless thee

Who are the children of Israel? According to the bible, the children of Israel are those who consciously choose to align themselves with the Creator of heaven and earth. Those who purposely and deliberately choose to follow his guidelines are considered blessed.

 Is it possible to live forever?

The Samaritan story as told in the bible and relayed in the post, Is it possible to live forever? tells us in clear language that eternal life, according to Jesus, is linked with God’s Law and love and we’ll get into more detail about that later.

I thought it was a little angel

My story, I Thought It Was a Little Angel, talks about one of my personal experiences with depression and I learned from that episode in my life that despite our very best efforts, society hasn’t really got a handle on illnesses such as depression. Sometimes society’s methods works and often they don’t. God’s method has proven to be foolproof for my family and myself.

The funniest religious joke of all time

The story which has been voted the funniest religious joke of all times highlights the hypocrisy of religious people when it comes to loving each other.

 Jonah goes to Nineveh

Jonah’s story shows us that God cares about those who do their own thing as much as He cares about those who profess to follow Him. That is exactly what made Jonah so mad, the fact that God is merciful to all and not just to the religious few.

Thank you and dedication


Thank you!

One of my mentors is a children’s author and I am much indebted to her. Thank you, Jenny, for your wonderful guidance and exhilarating workshops. I treasure the hours and days we spent mucking around with the letters of the alphabet, dipping chocolates in our drinks and just lazing about enjoying each others company and the English language. Jenny told me that when writing anything I need to have an audience in mind. Who are my readers and who would be interested in what I have to say? I have been rather confined for the last decade or so and therefore I imagine my immediate audience to be the people closest to me.

Dedication.

I haven’t read too many blogs so I don’t know if it is usual to dedicate a blog to anyone but I dedicate this blog to my brothers and sisters whom I love much and to my cousins and their families in memory of Les who told me that he will live forever.

Hey Monica,

This blog ‘Live For Ever how to’ (Mimi’s blog, this and that) is for you who tells me that the stories in the Bible are fairy tales, even though you’ve never read them. Sis, much as I disagree with you on that, I love you and yours much and can’t wait for your next visit.

This blog ‘how to’ is also for my sister Andrea.

Hi Annie, I know that you and yours are devout church-going Christians. And whilst we differ in our understanding of God’s Word versus church doctrine, GOD knows our heart and I love you and your wonderful husband and children too.

This blog ‘Live For Ever’ is for my brother Charles.

and his wife who both don’t want to talk about any of it. Love you, bro and sis.

This blog is for my brother Rick and his family.

Not being a churchgoer nor ‘believer,’ your warm heart arranged for an ambulance to take me on a five-hour ride from Noosa to the Gold Coast just so that I was able to attend a church healing event. I wasn’t able to make it to this gathering because of health concerns, but your compassion more than healed whatever needed healing at the time, all those years ago. In my heart bro, For Ever.

For good measure also dedicated to my husbands.

I also dedicate this blog “Live For Ever how to,” (Mimi’s blog, this and that) to my husbands, William the atheist and Roger the Buddhist. As it stands neither one of them expects to Live For Ever. At least not according to their belief and religion.
And no, I am not a bigamist nor adulterous. I have returned to my first love, am head over heels .. forever after.

And finally I also dedicate this blog to my friends, neighbours and children.

Live For Ever how to (Mimi’s blog, this and that) blog is also dedicated to all my friends and buddies. Many of them are either atheists, agnostics or what I would call good Samaritans with no religious affiliation but caring human beings with warm beating hearts and loving kindness pulsating through their veins.

I count my kind and supportive neighbours amongst my buddies. It is their lawns and paddocks which have fed my daughter’s ponies throughout droughts as well as floods, both of which we get plenty of here in Queensland, Australia. It is their pool(s) that allowed me to follow up on the hydrotherapy recommended by my physio. It is their glutenfree, and sugar/dairy-free cakes that allow me to indulge in sweets every now and then. It is their counsel and advice 

Last but not least, listen up my Godchild and daughters who are better to me than seven sons each; God’s Word tells us to teach our children. So here goes.
