Heaven

"Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy"

The link below is to a fascination and inspiring story the Today show aired.  And I felt it should be shared.

This little boy's experience is amazing, and there are many others like him.  I had a friend who's Aunt once experienced something very similar...in fact it was so amazing she always told her family she wished they had just let her stay there. 

And so it remains one of the great mysteries of life.  Is there life after this one on earth, does heaven exist, and if so what is it really like?  Everyone has their own opinions, each religion believing a little something different.  Some don't believe at all.  And for many it is a hard subject to discuss because of the varying beliefs and views.  But the fact remains that many a person has had the experience of this child, recalling details that they would have no way of knowing. 

In this little boys case he met a sister he never know he had, as his mother had miscarried before he ever came into their lives. She herself never knew the sex of the baby.  And he met a great grandfather he never knew here.  He could recount the wear abouts of each of his family members, what they were doing, etc, while he was clinical not alive.  Oh the skeptics will always doubt, the atheists will always say it is some kind of mind trick, but I'm sorry certain details that the mind has never encountered, known or learned while here on earth....how do we account for those little things? 

I'll admit at times I can be a doubting Thomas.  Somedays it is hard to believe in Heaven, or life after here, especially when there is much suffering sometimes here on earth.  Maybe there is a reason for it, maybe not.  But the fact of the matter is there are many things in life that cannot be explained.  There are many mysteries to life that we may never know the answer to.  But upon hearing such stories it is hard not to believe, hard not to have faith, in Heaven.

And when asked what Heaven was like....this little boy said it is filled with lots of people, colors and animals.  And everyone has wings.  Which makes you wonder....

What is Heaven?  What is it really like?  Is it the same for everyone?  Do we all meet up with those we love?  And if Heaven is real....What do we do there?  Do we have the opportunity to come back to earth?  And the biggest question of all....Does what we do here on earth, how we live our lives, treat others, do our actions and behaviors influence or directly have an affect on Heaven?

Something to think about today and always.

"Life is a tapestry:  We are the warp; angels, the weft; God, the weaver.  Only the Weaver sees the whole design"
