This morning I took an assembly at my local primary school, the subject was the festival of All Saints. I did a ppt talking about various saints. but it was the ensuing discussion on heaven and where it is.
I asked the question” where do you think have is”
the answers ” in space” “amongst the clouds” ” the here and now” no one came up with the answer I thought may appear and that was a sweet shop !!
But why not a sweet shop.
We have many people in our lives who are or have been special to us. Life one big sweet shop, catering for all types of taste. Sadly some taste bitter, a bit like some people in life but some are sweet and enjoyable and become favourites. We welcome them with joy and each time we join with them we are happy and fullfilled.
the next question was
“Where do they sleep” so I asked ,”where do you think”
“In bed on a cloud” what a wonderful thought.
I had this mental picture of all the saints in bed with name tags, just like the seven dwarfs. My mum and dad together, side by side.
A joyous thought.
So what are you thoughts on heaven?
