I have been thinking quite a bit since I lost my friend a few weeks ago.. 
I have been thinking a lot about heaven and death, 

Death leaves a sadness that heaven can heal. 
I am so thankful that my friend knew Jesus and she is in heaven with no more cancer, that makes me happy even though I really miss her down here, I know she would never want to come back. 

Then I think of my Grandpa how he is in heaven and rejoicing every day that he has no more illness, he is healed and free, made whole. 

There are so many family members in heaven, so many family members that I miss every day. My 2 Grandma's, 2 Grandpas, ( I miss my Gigi's), aunts, uncles, cousins, a nephew I never met, I cannot wait for heaven to meet them all and be reunited. 

Just think how exciting heaven will be when we all get there, when we are all are together for eternity. 

Heaven is a place of “no mores.” There will be no more tears, no more pain, and no more sorrow (Revelation 21:4). There will be no more separation, because death will be conquered (Revelation 20:6). The best thing about heaven is the presence of our Lord and Savior (1 John 3:2). We will be face to face with the Lamb of God who loved us and sacrificed Himself so that we can enjoy His presence in heaven for eternity.


  1. Amen! It's painful to think about the loved ones we have lost but Jesus' name gives up eternal hope. Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. It IS exciting! When I think like this about heaven, it makes me more compelled to live out the Great Commission so that more can have this hope, too!

  3. While our friends and loved ones are in Heaven and a much better place our journey without them here is so difficult. Many don't give themselves permission to grieve. Many forget that it's ok to not be ok when you are missing them.

    thanks for this

  4. I like that so much: "Heaven is a place of no mores." I am so sorry for the losses you have experienced. I am grateful for my loved ones who are in heaven and for knowing I'll see them again. When someone passes away and you know they weren't a child of God, it makes you want to share the gospel all the more!

  5. I like your last paragraph about heaven being a place of no mores. I look forward to seeing loved ones in heaven, and finally standing in Jesus' presence with no more separation, no more guilt, no more sin? That's going to be wonderful.

  6. Heaven is my favorite destination! It has always been. I would love to be in the presence of our Creator, the one who knows and loves us the most.


Thanks for the blogging Love
