Mary Kate's Heaven

This is what I'm listening to right now. Joe is reading a religious book with the kids while they're eating a snack before bed. Before Joe got too far in reading, though, Mary Kate offered this vision...

"I think this happens when you die."

"You go into this dark place, then you enter a small hut that's a chapel. It has three benches and fits only about six people."

"There are thousands of candles, but there's one really big candle that never goes out. You light a candle for yourself."

"When all of your sins are removed, then you get blown away. When you wake up, you're in heaven."

"When you get up to heaven, it's like this big festival."

There you have it. The vision of heaven from our eight year old.

A little angel in the making.

The angels are Kathleen and Mary Kate a few Halloweens ago.

That is so sweet, Laura. That is priceless that you captured it- someday it will be fun for her to look back and read that!

What a sweetie. I'm glad you documented. I've always just imagined you were in heaven before you knew what happened. I did read 90 minutes in Heaven and that was interesting.

What a lovely image of heaven, and what a sweet girl to think of it.
