It was a difficult day on earth today as we attended the funeral of our close friend Jessica Council. We look forward to heaven. Consider how the disciples didn't have a clue what Jesus was talking about when he said that he had to die and be risen again. They had a mental picture that didn't even start to attain the reality they were to discover. I'm sure they retraced their mental paradigms afterwards and realized what Christ was really talking about.  I translate this same misconception to how God tells us what heaven is going to be like. No matter how thrilling our mental picture of streets of gold, millions singing "worthy is the Lamb", and worship, I'm convinced that it is going to blow our minds when we get there. Our preconceived pictures will be static radio compared to the high definition reality we see when we arrive! Jessica is enjoying that reality at this moment. And that is comforting.
