Heaven is...

Heaven is just another one of those mysteries on this earth that we can never be sure of. It is fascinating to think of what is going to happen to you after your time on this earth is done.

As much as I want to name the fantasies of what heaven will be, we can never be sure, so our imagination will have to do. I believe we were all put on this earth to serve a purpose, to be the best person we can be. After helping God on this planet and being a good person, you eventually have to die. Many people who have had near-death experiences have often said that they go back to different times of their lives, have flashbacks of the many things that happened to them.

I believe that, to an extent, that does happen to a person, before you enter the gates of heaven. Once you actually enter heaven, you are among your family and the great people of this earth. Gorgeous weather and the greatest golf courses will surround you. Oh wait, maybe Arizona is heaven? I think that a person's greatest joys and pleasures will be waiting for them in heaven, a place among the clouds and God.

You have to earn your way into heaven. I think itís kind of scary to think of doing the wrong things here on earth and paying for it for the rest of eternity. I don't believe in reincarnation. I couldn't imagine myself coming back as someone else or something else. If you ask me, I think it's ridiculous but I guess I won't know till I know.

Many people often say that they don't want to live till they're old and want to die when they're fifty, but I don't. I think Iíll die when I'm eighty to ninety years old, lying in bed looking up at my kids and satisfied with my life. I want to see my kids have kids and their kids have kids. Enjoy retirement and play golf every day. When my time comes to go to heaven, I'll be ready.

Heaven motivates; it gives you incentives to do the right things while you are here on this earth. Heaven is a place where you'll meet grandpa again and learn from everyone there and enjoy yourself for the rest of eternity. I just hope I make it there.
