Seeing Clearly – A View From Heaven
"What happens when you die?" The words burst out of young Matthew's mouth louder than he intended.
This is the start of Matthew Peterson's journey. Like all of us he wanted to know the unknowable. Like many of us, he lets life's ride consume him, helping him ignore the truth that someday it will end.
Matthew dies and starts his journey to life as he sojourns to heaven. In heaven nature comes alive to welcome him home. The knots of life unwind as he becomes close friends with a carpenter who helps him on his voyage to understand, to know, and be known.
About Rick Mapson (Springfield, Missouri Author)
I am a 60-year-old father of four and grandfather or four . My wife Margaret (of 36 years) and I had lived in Wilmington, Delaware, since 1983 and moved to the Springfield, MO, area in 2005. I have been in the Information Technology field for the past 36+ years. The past 12 years at NLRC before coming to Springfield I was contractor/consultant to DuPont, QVC, Blue Cross, EDS, and other large companies.
I have always been a story teller, especially with my kids. At our church I was the Children’s Church leader for several years. I told stories to emphasize the lesson. Over fifteen years ago I started writing down some of those stories. Each one has a theme and has made both children and their parents think.
Seeing Clearly A View From Heaven is my first novel.
