A Good Read
A friend recently gave me a wonderful book to read, Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo. It is the story of his young four-year-old son's visit to Heaven after a ruptured appendix. The book was filled with all kinds of tidbits that brought me an extra bit of comfort. One message the little boy makes sure he gets across is that Jesus really loves children. At one point he told his family names of some of the other children he met during his brief visit and also revealed that he had met his sister (lost to a miscarriage) and a Grandfather he had never met. I could go on about all the things I found fascinating in this book, but instead will say, read it if you get a chance. It can be very eye-opening.
