Heaven Is For Real

Seldom do I take the time to watch a movie and seldom do I cry...I did both today.  Not tears of sadness, nor disappointment nor pain but tears of joy.  I cried because "Heaven Is For Real".

I thought this day, this place and this time was appropriate to share the joy I received from the movie.

In a season when we speak of love, gifts and family some of us need to know Heaven is for real. This movie, based on a true story, clarified for me the gift that we all are given.

Merry Christmas!

Loved the book...loved the movie more, which is unusual for me. I have a copy of the picture of Jesus that the little guy identified as the Jesus he saw - it hangs in my living room. I liked it so much I bought a little bitty one recently and have it beside my bed. I'm going to recognize that face when I get to heaven. :) blessings, marlene
