Is heaven boring?
What can we do in heaven? There’s lots
of fun stuff to do in heaven. There are adventures, like riding down a
waterfall. I went riding down a giant, high waterfall.
bottom, my big
sister was standing there beside a beautiful pool of water. (She had
left for heaven a few years ago.) She said, "Let’s go diving in the
water. We can swim underwater without breathing air".
underwater and saw gorgeous, beautiful fish swimming around. And nobody
was afraid of us. We could swim right up next to the fish. The animals in heaven are all friendly. It is amazing!
Look at all the beautiful fish!
We swam around looking at all the beautiful fish. Down at the
bottom I saw a huge clam. His mouth was open and he had a giant pearl in his
mouth. It was amazing how big it was!
I took the
pearl and swam back to the surface with it. The pearl
was beautiful and so big, about the size of a basketball.
While I was admiring the giant pearl, all of the sudden, I realized
it did not belong to me.
I felt bad and thought about all the work the
clam did to make such a giant pearl.
I said to my sister, "I'm
going to take it back to the clam. He worked so hard making it." So I
went in the water and swam down to the clam. He was still there with his
mouth open. He was so sad that he had lost his big beautiful pearl.
Look at all the work the clam did to make the giant pearl.
It's not mine. I'm going to take it back. The clam said, "Thank you.".
I put the giant pearl back into the clam. He said, "Thank you." Respect and consideration are part of building Christian character.
Is there family in heaven? Yes, and sometimes we will see family members we have
not met before. I wonder what it will be like to meet my great,
grandparents and their parents. There's lots to do in heaven and so many adventures in store for us.
