Froggy's Thoughts of Heaven
“Dreams are like stars...you may never touch them, but if you follow them they will lead you to your destiny.”
Days and nights are jumbled together. The sleep comes at irregular times. My thoughts race to and fro and dreams are a plenty. There are good dreams and bad dreams; but there are dreams and for that I am grateful. I was once told that when we stop dreaming is when we are dead no matter if our heart is beating, or not.
“The best thing about dreams is that fleeting moment, when you are between asleep and awake, when you don't know the difference between reality and fantasy, when for just that one moment you feel with your entire soul that the dream is reality, and it really happened.”
Many of my dreams are about the afterlife and Heaven. It should be no surprise to people with the fact that my wife of 30 years passed on not long ago.
I was at a standstill on what I should write about today. I knew I had a desire to write, but had no idea what to write about. I opened the questions and lo and behold, I happened across this question by FaithDream. What are my thoughts of Heaven?
The dreams I have are not of streets of gold or flashing diamonds. I don't picture multiple little naked angels playing harps and singing. So sorry my Baptist friends. I don't picture people dressed as the Pope bowing and kissing the hands of our Lord. I must also apologize to my Catholic friends on that one.
No, my dream is one that is actually quite Biblical too. Let us look at the scripture I refer to:
But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 19:14
These are the Words straight from Jesus.
My picture of Heaven?
My picture of Heaven is children. Children playing and no worries of abuse or molestation. No money worries, where ice cream is so wonderful. A carnival every day. We all are children again, loving and playing and listening to stories from our Savior and King, Jesus.
Really it's all so simple, not difficult like it is here on Earth.
This is my thoughts and dreams of Heaven. We will all be children, because children are pure an innocent until adults teach them sin.
I hope this is a good enough answer. Only God knows, but from what I read in the Bible, Heaven will be children.
