I've always had such wild ideas for what Heaven would be like. Flying on Eagles, diving from the Tree of Life, having a monkey butler are all plans I have. Good plans but maybe not the best part. I think the best part of Heaven will be the friends. The family. All united. No longer spread apart by ugly miles or death or messed up situations.
I had a little experience of what I believe Heaven will be like this July. It was my friend Lemmy's wedding. He was getting hitched to the fabulous Nicole Ley in a beautiful church in Chattanooga, Tennesee. All my highschool friends were back together for the first time in years. It was amazing. I haven't been so excited or anxious about a coming event since, well, ever.
I was afraid that we would be awkward around each other. That we wouldn't get along as well as we used to. But that wasn't the case at all! I picked up Nick from the airport and it was like nothing had changed. We just kept on chatting it up like we had been together the day before.
Throughout the weekend there was a general feeling of happiness and peace. Just like Heaven.
