Words of Wisdom Wednesday

"Heaven will be no heaven if I do not meet my wife there."
~Andrew Jackson 

So, these words my not be all that wise or profound. However, I completely agree with him. Heaven will be no heaven if my husband isn't there. As a Christian, I've often pondered what heaven will be like. I know that it can't be anything like I have imagined it to be because God does things we can't begin to imagine. I know that the Bible says we're not married in heaven. {I haven't researched it thoroughly so I can't tell you where in the Bible exactly. Peter asks of a widow of 5 men, "In heaven, whose wife will she be?" Jesus answers that she is none of their wives.} I really hope that we kind of are. I hope that God will allow me to live with my best friend. I can't imagine what it would be like without him. I know that heaven is going to be amazing, so who am I to share the awesomeness of it with if not Joe? 

Things to think about...

Happy Hump Day!

I believe it's in that same passage where Jesus says that the reason she isn't anyone's wife is because in Heaven "there is neither marriage nor giving in marriage." But I don't have the reference memorized. It's funny, we've talked about that, too. Whenever it comes up, SoldierMan won't even listen when I say, "But we won't be married in Heaven..." :) It's kind of cute. I just have to believe that Heaven is so awesome and our relationship with God at that point will be so overwhelming that it surpasses the desire to be married. Which, when you think about it, is pretty cool. :)
