We were sitting in the car driving to Arizona. My brother out of blue said, "Hey dad, if I get to heaven before you, I will write you a letter telling you what heaven is like. My dad simply replied, "You think God will let you" " He is a nice guy," my brother returned. Then my mom snapped at them to stop talking about that. It did not stop them though. They continued on about what they thought heaven is like. Finally my mom lost it and silenced them. Too many of us hold on to earth and the things we love here. We fear death and leaving our families and friends, but as Jesus said "Do not store your treasures on earth, where they can be eaten by moths and get rusty, and where thieves break in and steal." "Store your treasures in heaven where they will never become moth-eaten or rusty and where they will be safe of thieves."
We will see our friends and family in heaven and they will be safe there. We need not fear dying. Like the innocence of a young child, my brother understands that. He has no fear of dying or of leaving. Do not worry for God will provide for all our needs. He is indeed a wonderful God.
You know it has to be nice ... Jesus is there. :-) 2jesus
