WHAT CHILDREN SAY ABOUT HEAVEN

Mom, God’s so neat, and heaven’s supposed to be so great. Could me and Michael go there Saturday for a sleep-over?

Our seven-year-old daughter, Clarisa, was not really excited about going to Sunday school, but her little friend talked her into it. After the first class, at lunch, she said, “I like my teacher, and she said if I come to Sunday school every Sunday, she’ll show me how I can get a free trip to heaven.”

My three-year-old granddaughter, Morgan, came over one day and looked around the room and asked, “Where’s Grandpa?”

   I answered, “He’s in heaven.”

   Surprised, she looked at me and said, “Still?”

I know what heaven is like because I was there. God makes people when He thinks of them, and then they wait to be born.

Our six-year-old, Rachel, prayed, “God, they keep telling us You love us kids. But I’m wondering: if You know my older brother, do You think he’ll ever get to heaven?”

Grandma’s gone to heaven, and she’ll be happy there because there’s a Dairy Queen everywhere. Right?

When Jenny was four, she asked, “Does heaven have a floor?”

   Surprised, I said, “Well, Jenny, what do you think heaven is like?”

   She looked up at the sky and clouds and replied, “Well, I can’t see any floor, so I guess people are just up there on coat hangers!”

I told nine-year-old Heather that someday we would have glorified bodies.

   She asked, “Do you think we’ll look like Barbie?”

One day my five-year-old grandson, Brett, who frequently went fishing with his dad, told his mother,

   “If Grandma’s going to heaven with us, God had better have a pretty big fishing rod to haul her in!”

My 12 year old daughter asked me, “Mom, do you have a baby picture of yourself? I need it for a school project.”

I gave her one without thinking to ask what the project was.

A few days later I was in her classroom for a parent-teacher meeting when I noticed my face pinned to a mural the students had created.

The title of their project was: “The oldest thing in my house.”

A teenager invited his girlfriend over to Sunday dinner to meet his parents for the first time. He warned her that his mother can be strong willed and very critical of his friends.

She replied, “Don’t worry, I can hold my own. I’ll nicely put her in her place if need be.”

After dinner the teen asked his girlfriend why she hadn’t stood up to his mother. She answered by saying, “I’m not worried about her, it’s the horde of flying monkeys that must be waiting outside that bothers me.”

After an overnight flight to meet my father at his latest military assignment, my mother wearily arrived at Rhein-Main Air Base in Germany with my eight siblings and me – all under age 11. Collecting our many suitcases, the ten of us entered the cramped customs area.

A young customs official watched our entourage in disbelief, “Ma’am,” he said, “do all these children and this luggage belong to you?”

“Yes, sir,” my mother said with a sigh. “They’re all mine.”

The customs agent began his interrogation: “Ma’am, do you have any weapons, contraband or illegal drugs in your possession?”

“Sir,” she calmly answered, “if I’d had any of those items, I would have used them by now.”

The official allowed us to pass without opening a single suitcase.

A visitor to Israel attended a recital and concert at the Moscovitz Auditorium. He was quite impressed with the architecture and the acoustics. He inquired of the tour guide, “Is this magnificent auditorium named after Chaim Moscovitz, the famous Talmudic scholar?”

“No,” replied the guide. “It is named after Sam Moscovitz, the writer.”

“Never heard of him. What did he write?”

“A big check,” replied the guide.

Tired from waiting for their overdue baby, my daughter and her husband broke the monotony one night with a trip to the movies. My daughter went inside to get seats while my son-in-law bought popcorn and drinks in the lobby.

Paying for the refreshments, my son-in-law knocked over his soda. The clerk mopped up the mess and refilled his cup. Rattled, he then joined his wife.

Talking over the background music, he dramatically described his embarrassing episode. One of his expressive gestures upset the bucket of popcorn. He sheepishly headed back to the lobby.

When he was out of earshot, the woman sitting next to my daughter turned and said, “You’re not going to let him hold the baby, are you?”

Money can buy a bed, but not sleep.

Money can buy a clock, but not time.

Money can buy a book, but not knowledge.

Money can buy food, but not an appetite.

Money can buy position, but not respect.

Money can buy blood, but not life.

Money can buy insurance, but not safety.

You see, money is not everything!

Therefore, if you have too much money, please send it to me.

After buying his ticket he stopped at the concession stand to purchase some popcorn. Handing the attendant $1.50, my friend couldn’t help but comment, “The last time I came to the movie, popcorn was only 15 cents.”

“Well, sir,” the attendant replied with a grin, “You’re really going to enjoy yourself. We have sound now.”
