My friend Kristin sent me the book Heaven is for Real to read after I told her that I had been wanting to read it. I had seen a video about the book and it just intrigued me. I know a lot of people have a fascination with Heaven. Does it exist? What will it be like? I have read 90 Minutes In Heaven and really liked that book so I figured I would like this one too. I was wrong. I loved this one. There's just something about it being from a child's point of view that makes it that much more real.
It's hard for me to put into words overall how I feel about this book because it moved me so much. One of the parts of the book that stood out to me the most was when Colton said, "Yeah, she said she just can't wait for you and Daddy to get to heaven." (Referring to the sister his mom lost through miscarriage.) I have always hoped that my children know about me in Heaven and this has shown me that they do. They know about me and they love me and they can't wait until we are together again. Talk about pulling at my heartstrings!
Ever since Carleigh has been gone I have longed for Heaven in a way I never have before. I have never wondered as much about it as now. This book has given me a small glimpse into Heaven and for that I am thankful. This has definitely secured my belief that Heaven IS for real and that I can't wait to get there.
