My blog name came from a movie line from a Steven King movie called “The Stand”. I had lost my father prior to watching this movie and although a firm believer in the ‘hereafter’, I wanted a sign from my father that he was okay.
My name, Dawn Eden, was given to me by my father and I always loved it because I felt it was rather unique. So one night I’m watching this movie in bed, thinking quietly about my dad because the movie has a Christian slant to it with ‘Evil” a main character and this old black woman who is obviously the ‘good’ prophet.
The old woman is laying on her death-bed and remarks to her friends that ‘heaven is as pretty as dawn in Eden’. Well, that line certainly caught my attention and I took that as my dad’s sign to me that he was okay and in heaven.
