Let me set this up. My daughter is a very good and strong Christian. We have always had good discussion regarding certain theories about religion. Of course we never argue or get mad at each other. Well maybe she does (not really)but I never do. Actually I believe we do quite well even though we may have different opinions about things. Especially my best friend who is Jewish. Why this should bother her I don't know. Her Great Grandmother was Jewish. Her grandmother whom worshiped the ground my daughter walked on very quietly brought her Jewish traditions into our family. Even though she converted to being a Lutheran when she married my dad. OK, so you should have the idea now.
Sarah, my daughter, and I were walking in the park the other day. Of course at some point the discussion came to a question about ABNMOMMA and what she was doing. I said she was looking down at us and smiling. Just waiting hopefully for me to join her. Sarah's thoughts were different. Of course I rebutted with in Heaven there is no sadness only a feeling of joy and understanding. There is no pain nor suffering and earthly beings like Sarah and I were looked on with a peace that knows no pain. An understanding that this is the way it is and has to be. It's part of the Plan.
I emailed my draft to Sarah telling her I wanted it to be accurate. She emailed me back with her reply. I have edited out my glaring misunderstandings of our conversation. Here is her reply.
This is not exactly what I said or what I meant... I said and believe that i don't think that Mom is paying any attention to what is going on down here on earth because the Bible says that "there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying or pain;"and if she saw us down here sad it would make her sad too and that just can't work. Thinking this way takes more faith and less comfort. God watches over us and takes care of us. If we have a personal relationship with him then when we get to heaven our "job" is to worship him and that is what we will be doing and all we will care about doing because Jesus died for us this is what God's word says, not our own emotional comfort.
Now, without taking sides and playing nice how about commenting. IMHO what is your understanding of Heaven? You can even go so far as to tell us what do you think ABNMOMMA is doing. Is she looking down? If you read my post at Mark 1:11 you know I had a feeling about her the other day.
What is your Heaven?
