A Piece of Heaven, Here, Now

Last Saturday, I was asked how sure was I of going to Heaven.  I’m pretty sure there is a Heaven.  I am going there one day.  I have a lot of loved ones waiting for me there.  What I want to do is be sure to be faithful while I’m here on this side.  Can I have a piece of Heaven, here, now?

This Lenten Season, I’ve been loving everyone.  Or trying to.  It hasn’t been easy.  There are jerks and rude people everywhere.

“Do I have to love them, too? ”

“Yes, them, too!”

or as Gpa would self-correct, “Yes, them, as well!”

As I ponder this thought, I see me reaching up and pulling a piece of Heaven down through the veil, experiencing just like Jesus said, “The kingdom of God is at hand.”

This world does not have to go to hell in a hand-basket. We, you and I, have the power to have Heaven, here, now, if we will love each other unconditionally. For sometimes you are rude and a jerk and sometimes I am.  Let’s forgive each other and have a Heaven filled day.
