Eternal Life.
Sitting in my room I am pondering on the teachings of the scientists in our days …they state that 13,7 billion years ago when  the big bang happened everything came into being during the fraction of a second ! In the beginning there was only energy-unimaginable by us- that forcing open space, time started to expand. It expanded and cooled and subatomic particles appeared then close to half a billion years later came into being the first structure known by scientists today the atom!Forming a union with a proton, a neutron, and an electron !Our physicists state that every single particle of matter came to life out of this vast energy source. I look into the mirror dismayed ….unbelievable all my little particles were there at this time ! I become quiet and I feel infinitely old ! 
In whirling time of the rolling of the sea I think about what the biologists are saying , that all the atoms forming my body are changed yearly because a human body is not a permanent, unchanged entity but constantly a carrier of life and death . The cells of a human body are constantly coming to life, being born and dying , all the blood being carried by my body are used up within 21 days and are exchanged for  brand new blood cells ! My constitution is not repairing itself at the level of cells , tissues but rather destroying them produces new ones . Looking in the mirror and I acknowledge that in reality not one part of me is more than a year old ! 
I sit on my chair in the morning listening to the birds twittering I can see our world is working peacefully ,well , my companions are inviting me for a coffee , everybody is laughing , joking , the vacation is here and this isn right ! I stand up so I can kneel down and profess my faith in my Creator , in His Holy Son , Jesus Christ who in Himself showed God’s merciful , kind-hearted , life-giving beautiful face! Yes I believe in the holy Trinity , and I believe in my God’s beautiful gift in life , that is eternal , reassuring to the man woken up to self-awareness , will reach fulfilment at our God’s wedding table!
I believe in eternity, in the final victory of love ,

18 Some Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him and asked him a question, saying, 19‘Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies, leaving a wife but no child, the man* shall marry the widow and raise up children for his brother. 20There were seven brothers; the first married and, when he died, left no children; 21and the second married her and died, leaving no children; and the third likewise; 22none of the seven left children. Last of all the woman herself died. 23In the resurrection* whose wife will she be? For the seven had married her.’
24 Jesus said to them, ‘Is not this the reason you are wrong, that you know neither the scriptures nor the power of God? 25For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. 26And as for the dead being raised, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the story about the bush, how God said to him, “I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob”? 27He is God not of the dead, but of the living; you are quite wrong.’
Mark 12, 18-27
