Some of us might think we will never get away. It reminds me of an old gospel song made famous by a man called Jim Reeves – “One fine morning…I’ll fly away”.

He didn’t mean fly away to Majorca, or to the Azores, or to a summer cabin in Sweden, but to a life beyond this one. When this life is over, when the first wave, all the subsequent waves and peaks are ended, maybe we shall be able to travel wherever we please.

Not that the afterlife should be likened to one endless holiday. After all, we would get bored sooner or later. God, whoever he is, didn’t design us for nothingness.

What he did make us for is something beyond the mess we are in.

Now that sounds good to me. As the song went on, “When I die, Hallelujah by and by, I’ll fly away…”

You can come too.

Best regards,
