The mind of an 8 year old….
Brandon: can’t wait to go to heaven?
Me: why is that?
Brandon: I need to see the new town God’s been working.
Brandon: yeah – the Bible says he’s making a new town. The new town where no one catches a cold, no sickness, no sleeping, no homework..
Well – might be because he needs to go to bed and it’s way past his bedtime. When you don’t want to go to bed – you start wishing heaven was here.
Come to think of it – I am longing for home as well primarily because I can’t wait to see Jesus. The song titled ‘Can’t imagine’ says it all.
There you have it.
