Heaven



Have you read Heaven is For Real?

My sister got it for me after my miscarriage. I NEVER read books. I know how to read, I usually don't have the patience though. I finally started it the other night and could not put it down. I almost finished it in one sitting, but at 2 am my eyes started to cross. So I finished it the next night. I loved it and though it was so hopeful.

I have always believed in Heaven and I really can't wait to go. I am not afraid to die at all. I would rather not die right now, because I want to raise Katie, but if I did...be happy for me, because I know I will be in Heaven!

The book is about Colton, who got very sick after his appendix burst, and almost died. After he recovered he told stories about Jesus and Heaven. You will just have to read it to hear all the details. But my favorite part was when he told his mom he had 2 sisters. She said no, you just have one sister. He said he met his other sister in Heaven. She didn't have a name, but she just kept hugging him. What Colton didn't know is that his mom had a miscarriage before he was born. They didn't know if it was a boy or girl, so she didn't have a name yet.

I am excited to meet my baby in Heaven one day. I have no doubt he or she is there. What a lucky kid to get to born into Heaven. No reflux, no diaper rash, no gas pains, no bumps and bruises when learning how to walk, no potty training, no shots, no time outs, no school, no cleaning your room, no puberty, no zits, no friend drama, no heart break...nothing bad, just Heaven!

Yes! I read this book one Sunday afternoon. (I'm a reader!) And yeah.. it's really good. That was one of my fav parts too! I had a miscarriage too, so it was nice to read that part of the book.

That makes me feel better. I miscarried at 11 weeks and I've never thought of it that way. I'll definitely have to read it :)

I loved that book. I had a miscarriage also and the book brought me alot of comfort. Even though I have 3 daughters who are grown, I do think about the one I lost.

I read this a couple of weeks ago and I loved it. Like you I believe in heaven and know I am going there, but to hear details of knowing the ones we love that are there, and even the ones we didn't get to meet. Great book.
