The heaven within my reachThe number of times I experienced 'heaven on earth' can best be described as innumerable. If I begin counting my 'heaven on earth' experiences, I will probably not know when to stop, because each momentous occasion would qualify and my list would grow longer by the second.
I am sure you have had your share of heavenly experiences too. And like you and me, there are an infinite number people who will have their share of their heavenly stories.
• Getting married – heavenly
• Securing admission in a top university – heavenly
• Getting a job – heavenly
• Driving your new car – heavenly
• Seeing the pride in your parent's eyes – heavenly
• The birth of your child – heavenly
• The taste of mother's food – heavenly… I could go on…
And yet, is it not odd that none has ever seen heaven! We just term everything that gives us joy, as heavenly. Each of us has a different image of our heavens. A heaven within our reach.
So, when I eventually die and go to heaven, what will the real heaven be like? Will it taste like mother's food or feel warm and cuddly like my new-born? Will it be like lying in mama's lap or smell like a freshly baked Plum Cake? Will it be like the heaven that I call home? Will it be the heaven that I know so well…And finally, the big question - will this heaven be within my reach?
