What happens to us after death? That is a question that can be 1 …………………. (ANSWER) most closely by those who have been clinically dead, and have come back to tell their stories. One such person, a friend of 2 …………….. (MY) has had the experience of being clinically dead on two separate occasions. On each occasion, she found herself in a garden at the foot of a bridge, crossing over a 3 …………………. (BEAUTY) stream. She said that she knew if she were to cross the bridge, she would not be going back into her body.

Others have communicated their experiences and although the specific settings may be different, the feelings and the beings that they encounter are very similar. Here is one very common type of experience, as 4 …………………. (TELL) by Sharon G.:

"It was a rainy Saturday morning in Kansas City as I recall that winter day in New Orleans, 5 ……………….. (STAND) at the kitchen sink in our new home, I was thinking of my Military husband who departed a week before for several years in Ireland. My two daughters, age 5 years, and 17 months, were playing near me. We were to join my husband in a few weeks, How wonderful our life was, and how fortunate we were. A years 6 …………. (EARLY), I had been an atheist now I was a Christian and had a Christian home and family…

As I stood in the sunroom, pain suddenly went through my abdomen and 7 …………………. (BRING) me to my knees. Within half an hour, I was too weak to stand on my feet. My concern was for my kids and I called my sister to come and help. As a physical         8 ………………………. (THERAPY), I knew something major was happening and I was trying to keep my head together so I could rationalize about the source of the pain. The week before, I had visited the gynecologist because I knew I was pregnant. After examining me, she told me that I was NOT pregnant. I knew that she was wrong! I had been pregnant 9 ………………….. (TWO) before, and I knew that I was this time again! As I lay on my bed in pain, I 10 ……………….. (KNOW) what my body was telling me, I WAS pregnant, but it was not a normal pregnancy! Our minister and his family came to 11 ……………. (PRAYER) along with my sister.

The trip to the hospital was excruciating. Upon arrival, my sister and I were told to wait, even though my symptoms were made known to the staff. I was finally put on a bed in an examining room, when I began to feel my life slipping away and my               12 ……………….. (THINK) were of my children and what would happen to them, who would love and care for them?

My hearing was excellent, I could hear every word being said in that room. There were two doctors there with three assistants. I could tell they were 13 ……………… (WORRY) as they tried to find a heart beat and blood 14 …………. (PRESS), This was the moment that I began to float toward the ceiling where I stopped and looked down at the scenario taking place below. There was my own 14 .................... (LIFE) body on the bed and one doctor said to the doctor as he was walking through the door, "where have you been, we called you, now its too late, she is gone, we can't get a heart beat and there is no blood pressure." Another doctor said, " What are we going to say to her husband?" From up above them, I said to myself, "Yes, what are you going to tell my husband, that is a good question. Pretty 15 …………………… (THOUGHT) of you." I remember thinking at that point, "How can I be humorous at a time like this?"

I did not see myself below on the table or the occupants of the room 16 ……………… (MORE). I was suddenly aware of the most heavenly light that was all encompassing. My pain was gone and my body felt free. I felt complete joy and contentment. I heard the most beautiful music that could only have come from heaven. " I became aware of a sense of peace that is 17 ……………… (POSSIBLY) in human form to comprehend. I began to look at this light and perceived what was happening to me and I never wanted to 18 …………….. (LEFT). I was in the presence of a divine being. I did not see Him, but He was there in the light and spoke to me in what would be considered a telepathic manner. I felt the overflowing Love of the being. He said to me that I had to      19 ……………….. (TURN) to my little children and there was work for me to complete on earth. I did not want to leave but I 20 …………….. (SLOW) returned to my body, which by this time had been 21 ……………… (MOVEMENT) to another room, being prepared for surgery. My heart began to beat again and I was going to surgery. I was not aware of anything from this point on for many hours…
