Almost Heaven

Almost Heaven
Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. II Peter 3:13
Hey Kids:
Have you ever wondered what heaven is like?
Do you have a favorite place that makes you think of heaven?
It might be your treehouse or just a favorite tree limb where you sit and read.
Maybe it’s a creek you play in or a beach where you run through the waves.
This week might be a good time to draw a picture of your idea of heaven.
Perhaps you know someone who has recently gone to be with Jesus.
You might want to add them to the picture to remind you of how happy they are to be in a place so beautiful, free from tears and pain.
