Girls Write Out
Tuesday, February 08, 2011
Well, we're packing up and heading out this morning. We've been with Kara and Mark for the past 4 weeks and it has been sooo fun! I've had 3 coffees a day with my baby girl. We start the morning with coffee then one of us will say, "Time for 2nd coffee?" Then later, "Time for 3rd coffee?" LOL

So I'm well-caffeinated as we hit the road. We're gong to Nashville next for the Thomas Nelson sales conference then home to see the other half of our kids. And I got to thinking this morning, ah heaven! Where we'll all get to be together. We've sorely missed Davy, Donna and Punky. As soon as we get home, we're rushing to see them. But I'll be missing Kara and Mark. Someone is always missing except the few times we get to vacation together or Kara comes home for Christmas. But in heaven, we'll all get to be together! I'm asking God if we can have one big mansion that we share. Then Mark, Davy and I can share the cooking. LOL Mark made the most wonderful tamales while we were here.

How about you? What are you most looking forward to in heaven? And don't tell me the lack of problems. LOL Tell me the positive side. :) And don't just say being with God because we all know that's the MOST important thing!!! But let's talk about the little things that will mean so much.

Great photo, Colleen! From Christmas?

I want to hike the oceans and the mountains and explore the whole world, one step at a time. I've planned to do that for many years, and it'll take half of eternity to do it.

I want Jesus to be King on earth, and fix all the problem with His perfect Justice. There will be true justice under His reign.

I want to be in my new body!

I want to continue to meet and know more and more people, to continuing doing the things God has given me to do!

I love thinking, "What will I be doing 500 years from now!" :)

Great post, Colleen!

A friend and I decided that a city that big has got to have at least one bagel shop. I figure it is down one of the side streets off the street of gold.

When Jesus told His disciples He was going to prepare a place for them, He was referring to the Jewish custom of the man going back to his father's house to prepare a place for his bride. Not a mansion, but probably a home attached to the family home. That picture makes me feel a whole lot more comfortable about Heaven because it emphasizes community.

I guess I'm more mundane than y'all. I'm looking forward to chocolate with no calories and coffee without over-caffeination!

I'm looking forward to being able to thank all of the people who've made an impact on my life. From musicians to ministers to friends and family. It's going to be amazing.

Sorry I've been gone! On the road to Nashville from PHoenix and ran into horrific weather! We'd checked the weather channel and thought it was going to be maybe 2" of snow. Um, no. Major winter storm. Got to our hotel 2 hours later than expected.

Love your comments, friends! Timothy, I'm planning on perfect gluten free bagels in heaven. Oh wait, I won't have celiacs there! Whoohoo! :)

Cheryl, that's from St Croix. :) Rache, I love that 500 years from now! I hope I get to travel to other planets. LOL

Barb, that is exactly the picture I want too! What fun to all be together!

EJ! I am PLANNING on coffee and chocolate in heaven. All I want! And it will be Debrands truffles with Echo Espresso coffee!

Suzanne, I love that! there are so many in my life too. I try to say thank you but there are some I've never met.

I once heard a college student ask Billy Graham if there would be sex in heaven. He replied, "I sure hope so, unless God comes up with something better for us to do!" LOL

Me? I'd settle for a new body, without pain and disease...and a place where I can see my wheelchair every day. That way I can remember to thank God for that new body.

I want to meet the two babies I never had a chance to meet and hold. When I think of them, I think of them in the arms of their 2 great grandfathers, and various aunts and uncles who are already there, watching over them till I get Home.

Most important, meeting my unborn child whom I miscarried.

Being with all the family, esp those grandchildren who are born after I die. Grandma has already started putting aside things for them.


A new body that won't mind all the chocolate and will have energy and ability to do all the things I'd like to do. :-)

Seeing all of my online friends in person!

Ice cream. Definitely ice cream in the new body that doesn't get fat from the fat in the ice cream. LOL

Then to sit by the crystal sea for an eon or two, walk paths in Heavenly mountains past beautiful lakes for another couple of eons. But mostly to be with Abba and all the saints forever. Wow ...

The neat thing is knowing He has things planned for us that we haven't even begun to imagine ... that's exciting!

At 8:58 AM, Blogger Diann Hunt said...

Seeing loved ones who have gone before me.

At 8:32 PM, Blogger Cara Putman said...

I'm looking forward to meeting our babies :-)

I can't wait to dance before the Lord..One of my cousins said to me "If I get there before you, I will be waiting with your tap dancing shoes in my hand and I will dance all over heaven with you." Anyone want to join us?
