Today is a very somber day in the Christian calendar. The day Jesus was crucified on the cross. Yeah, pretty heavy stuff for a blog post first thing in the morning, but I was laying in bed last with all kinds of thoughts about what it will be like in Heaven. I still can’t wrap my head around death, and I am over 40 years old. It is sad to admit that I think about it more often than not lately. Especially since my husband had a procedure on Wednesday that could have had a not so happy outcome. Thankfully, all is well.
But in any case, I laid there wondering the following things.
*Are there dinosaurs in Heaven? Will I finally get to meet a Tyrannosaurus Rex? And will he eat me?
*Is there winter in Heaven? I am really hoping there is not, because I had enough of winter on Earth.
*Will God reveal to us that there is life on other planets?
Gee, I am just a ray of sunshine today, aren’t I? But the death of Jesus Christ is such a heart-wrenching event, I can’t help the dark thoughts I have today. My faith is not always rock-solid, so sometimes I need to be light-hearted in order to deal with these thoughts.
On to other questions. Questions such as:
*Will God explain the reasoning behind the meanness of the great white shark?
*Or why He allowed people to create cars?
*Will I get to see my Grammy again? If so, how do I find her in the vastness of Heaven?
*Will my husband and I still be together in Heaven if we go there at separate times?
*Will we be young, or at least at the age that we felt happiest?
You know, it just reminded me that I have yet to read the book Heaven Is For Real. I just may, or maybe not. I am still not sure about how I feel about the whole death and dying deal that all of us humans must face. As an ex-nurse, I have seen my share of death, and I was always aware of the cycle of life. But I was younger then, and didn’t question my mortality at the time. Now that I am at the age where I am on the downside of my life cycle, I can’t help thinking about it.
See, there’s that whole sunshine thing again!
So tell me, what do you think? What questions will you have when you reach Heaven someday. And will you have the same question I did?
