Death, beautifully envisaged

….. A terminally ill man, as he rose to leave the surgery, said to his doctor, “Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side.”

Very quietly the Doctor said, “I don’t know…”

“But you are a Christian man Doctor. Surely you know what’s on the other side?”

The Doctor was holding the handle of the door. On the other side they could hear scratching and whining. As he opened the door, a dog came bounding in, and leapt on the Doctor with joyful exuberance. Turning to the patient, the Doctor said,

 “Did you notice my dog? He’s never allowed in this room. He didn’t know what’s here. He didn’t know what to expect. He knew nothing, except that his master was here. When the door opened, he sprang in without any fear. I know little of what lies on the other side of death, but I do know one thing… I know my Master is there, and that’s enough to know.”
