Reading a post about heaven recently gave birth to this blog. Thank you Gwen for a heavenly post and Anne LB for linking to it so I could find it.
Do you remember Johnny Carson, night show host/comedian? I've heard that Johnny asked Billy Graham, “Will there be golf in heaven.” Billy wisely answered. “Johnny, if you get to heaven, and if golf is necessary for you to experience joy, then, yes, there will be golf in heaven.” Pure Joy.
On a personal note: Recently, 9/11, I attended a birthday party for my two year old granddaughter. Her birth date is bitter sweet and somewhat fitting for her life thus far. Since she was three months old she has suffered from seizures and has remained mentally at that age. Although her body has continued to grow in size, she can't talk or walk or even hold her head. She must be fed through a tube in her stomach.
I told her there are a lot of things I just don't know. Like, Why, on your birth date as our nation remembers being shaken by terrorists, do you skake with with seizures. I'm sorry sweet girl but I just don't know. But, one thing I do know and look forward to. One day we will sit together and talk. We will laugh and run and play. And I can hardly wait to hear you sing.
Although I've never heard her utter a word other than groans from seizing, when I pray for her I see her singing. I just know she will be able to sing with the best of the angels. I still pray for her recovery. I want to teach her to ride a bike and fish and swim. But no matter what, I know in heaven she will be seizure free and I suppose, maybe she will be teaching me.
That's gonna be heaven for little Kylie. Me too - Pure Joy.
