So, I'm reading "The Lovely Bones" and its about this girl who gets molested, cut up into pieces and yeah, but her soul leaves her body and she goes to Heaven. And it got me thinking, how do I see heaven?

When I was little I always used to think that when you prayed, there were angels answering telephones up in heaven. I know its stupid and yeah I know....I'm cute.

Heaven is supposed to be the ultimate paradise. When I think of heaven, I think of golden roads and beautiful buildings. I think about how you get whatever you want as soon as you desire it. Puppies and icecream and there is never any pain in heaven and everyone is happy and is singing and dancing. You can do whatever you want and the roads never end. I always thought you started off as just an angel and then you get promoted up and soon enough, you could be a guardian angel and you could go back down to earth and protect people, that you could even show your self once in awhile to someone you know really needs you. I mean, why not, Jesus could do it. WWJD, what would jesus do, he'd show himself to the people he loves (I guess technically that's everyone) I also think that you could sit on a cloud and just watch people.
Brendon's grandparents are super religious and he told me that there are no relationships in Heaven but I don't believe that. I believe that while in Heaven you can be with whoever you want and no one gets jealous or protective. Because if Heaven is the ultimate paradise then I'm sure that if you want to be with someone, you're allowed to be with them.

I don't know, I probably just sounded like a severe dork but that's what I think when I think of heaven. What do you think when you think of Heaven?

Oh boy. That's a tough question. I haven't really thought it out much. But, I mainly think of it as a place where I know that there is no pain. People are at peace. Their suffering from earth is over. That's the main thing I think about when I think about heaven. Peace.
And I think it would be warm. That sounds totally random, but I think it would be. It would feel like you are being wrapped in God's loving hug all the time. Corny, I know.

I think both of your versions of Heaven sound wonderful... Personally, I believe each person has their own personal Heaven. It's whatever they want it to be. Any and all desires they may have are taken care of immediately.

But yeah... I guess everybody's view of Heaven is kinda cheesy...
