Don't Fear the Reaper #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to August's Secret Subject Swap. This week nine awesome bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts. 

My “Secret Subject” is:
what if the grim reaper existed, but he took people to whichever afterlife corresponded with their beliefs? Tell us a story!

It was submitted by: 

I must apologize to Jenniy first off, for the fact that I am not going to do this amazing subject justice. I just do not have the ability to think about this type of scenario and write a story. So, I can see that this is an awesome subject, but I just do not have the thought process necessary, to bring it to the glorious level it deserves.

Now, let's discuss this topic. The grim reaper actually existing, and everyone who dies, goes to the afterlife designated by their beliefs. That is some extraordinary reality. It would mean everyone, and every belief is correct. Those who believe in Heaven and Hell, correct. Those who believe there is no afterlife at all, correct. Those who believe in Valhalla, correct. Those who believe in 72 virgins, correct. Those who believe in Reincarnation, correct. I could go on and on. The magnitude of this possibility is mind blowing. 

For me personally, this would mean I would be going to Heaven or Hell. I must say, I am seriously hoping for Heaven. I would love to see all my loved ones, including my children, who have passed away before me. I want to meet God. I want to watch over my loved ones, until they join me, hopefully many decades later. I also believe that when we die, all our unanswered questions, are finally answered, and we know everything. I would absolutely love this. I have lots of unanswered questions.

The sad part for me, would come in the form of the people I love very much, who do not believe in the same afterlife as I do. They would be going to their own believed in afterlife, and I would be void of them for eternity. I would have to seriously spend my time praying, that when Gigi is old and gray, she believes in Heaven, and has remained a good person. 

In truth, with all the different beliefs which exist, the possibilities are endless. Obviously, if you would rather not say, I understand. I am genuinely curious where you would all end up, if this scenario were real. 

Now, please go check out the awesome Secret Subject Swaps, from my fellow bloggers. I will meet you there, with a cup of coffee, as soon as I'm home from bringing Gigi to school. Oh yeah, if you do not follow my Facebook page, you may have missed that Gigi became a Kindergarten student this week. I am handling as well as I am able. I have my moments. She is thriving and loving it. 

Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject Swap posts.  Sit back, grab a drink, and check them all out. See you there:


  1. I have a hard time imagining a heaven that doesn't include all my loved ones. That would make it a little less heavenly for me!

  2. I think you did do justice to the topic, well thought out and full of hope.

  3. I think you did a great job with a tough subject

  4. Interesting assignment, wow.
    How about you go after your unanswered questions the same way you did for this post? The answer is what you believe it is. Know what I mean? Will this give you closure? I feel you shouldn't have to wait till you die to find out what is important to you.

  5. this is one of those things I have been thinking about writing myself sort of like the wholesome demon story. I'd like to think that if there is a higher being whoever they are would appreciate someone living a good life and being a just person over who exactly they worshiped so that everyone who was good to others and lived with empathy and compassion could enter the afterlife they believed in. Kind of like everyone's person idea of The Good Place. And even though I don't particularly believe in any of it, and wouldn't have a real place if these events unfolded, I'd surely want to see everyone I love who does get what they were striving for in the end. :)
