Heaven must be full of Lortab!

Revelation 21:1-4 is an exciting piece of Scripture to me, but I especially love verses 3 & 4.

Lately I've been daydreaming about Heaven - what it will be like, look like, feel like, etc. So, this week I'd like to share with all of you my thoughts and hope you'll share some of yours. Are you ready? Here goes!

So, can you imagine what it will be like to never, ever have pain? From my perspective as a pharmacist, trust me, I see this world is wrought with pain. Physical pain. Emotional pain. Financial pain. Divorce pain. Oops she did it again and again pain. Ice cream-frozen-brain-pain. OK, the last one I added for comical relief because I was getting a little freaked out, but I think I made my point. This world has hurts.

From a personal perspective, I've seen my wife - the love of my life - endure the most horrendous, gut-wrenching, "God-are-you-there?" kind of pain over the past 5 years. She has endometriosis. It hurts me to see her hurt so badly. Personally, I've broken my leg twice. The last time the doctor gave me a painkiller called Lortab. I must've been in Heaven 'cause I was feeling no pain while I was taking that medication!

I'm thrilled God has a plan to destroy pain once and for all. Tears are going to be a thing of the past. One day, in Heaven, we all could be sitting around sipping on coffee drinks remembering the days when we actually could cry. Then again, probably not.

What are your thoughts? What pain(s) are you looking forward to be rid of the most?

So happy to have found your blog!

Just thought I would post a book I'm reading on heaven...it's called 'Heaven' by Randy Alcorn. It has lots of good scripture based ideas on what heaven will be like--including thoughts about living without ANY pain!

And, as always, we are praying for you and with you and Michele!
