"Grandmommy, what is it like in heaven? How far away is heaven? What do people do in heaven?" asked Melissa's five year old grandson, Trenton. Trenton had become fascinated with anything and everything about heaven ever since his uncle Tyler had suddenly died a year ago. Trenton attended the church that Melissa and her husband pastored so he understood that heaven was a wonderful and eternal place, yet he still needed reassuring that he would see his uncle again one day. He was really no different than the rest of his family because they too needed that reassurance sometimes. Melissa began to tell Trenton the things that the Word of God said about heaven. She described the streets of gold, the crystal waters, the large pearls that made up the doors and the other magnificent stones and jewels that would be seen. She talked to him about the fact that everyone would be worshipping and learning more about God. Melissa also told him that there would never be any more sicknesses or separations from each other. She told him there would always be light and no one ever get tired again. He asked about seeing and talking to Peter, Jonah and Paul. Melissa told him, "Yes, Trent, you will be able to talk to them. You can ask Peter about his walking on water experience, you can get all the details from Jonah about being in the belly of a whale and yes, I'm sure Paul will explain how he felt when he was shipwrecked." Trenton got very quite and seemed to be concentrating on something. Melissa said, "Trent, what are you thinking about not?" He responded, "I was just thinking, you know when we go to the beach every summer, you say we want to get a house with a beachview so we can see the ocean." Melissa said, "That's right, we all like to be able to see and hear the ocean." "Well, I was just wondering what kind of view Tyler has from heaven. What does the stars and the moon and the sun look like from heaven's view?" The only reply Melissa had was, "Well sweetie, as beautiful as our view is of God's creation in the heavenly skies is, it has to be even more spectacular from heaven's view." Trenton seemed to be satisfied with her answer and began to finish his coloring. Melissa began to silently pray, "Dear God, thank you reminding me again through this child of how truly amazing you are. Thank you for preparing a place for all of your children. Thanks you for reserving me a place for eternity that will have a heaven's view of the entire universe."

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

This was a lovely story, especially since I lost two dear ones not too long ago. The only thing I would suggest is that you check your spelling and grammar. Again a wonderful little story. I am sure it will touch many. God bless.
