Heaven

Every now and then, my seven-year-old son gets a little philosophical.  Tonight's philosophical discussion involved the nature of heaven.

"Mama, when we go to heaven, will we be in an adult form, or a kid form?"

Um.  I hadn't ever thought about that.  "I really don't know," I said. 

"I think we should all be kids."

"Why is that?" I asked.

"Because it's fun to play all day.  Being a kid is the best thing that's ever happened in my life."

Now wouldn't that be fun?  Heaven - the place of no work.  Just play.  I kind of like the sound of that!

(By the way, Buster the stray dog is home.  My neighbors found the owner.  Yay for Buster!)

  4. Aw, that was so sweet. I agree with him, although technically I am a child in an adult body - I'd probably have to do some growing up if I had to be an adult in Heaven!
