You know that feeling of finishing a great book? It is such a great feeling to read the last page and then close it but then you’re sad that’s it’s over.
It’s rare for me to find the time to read a whole book, with 3 little kids, but I had a break over the weekend and finished the book “Heaven is for Real”.
They say it’s a true story of a little boy, Colton, who has a near death experience and goes to heaven, sits on Jesus’ lap, meets his Great Grandfather, even his sister from his mother’s miscarriage and then through the prayers of his parents survives by a miracle.
He then over the next several years talks about Heaven and what it’s like as well as what he saw. His parents started writing it down.
I loved it so much because I felt like I was getting answers to questions I’ve always wondered about heaven. Will we really get to see our loved ones? Well in this book, this boy did.
The book did more then answer questions for me. It made me feel closer to Jesus. Over the course of the years, Colton’s parents asked him what Jesus looked like. They showed him lots of pictures, and he would always tell them what was wrong with the pictures. Until, they heard about a little girl that had a similar near death experience and painted a picture of the Jesus she saw. They showed that to Colton, and he said "that’s Him."
Now I’m bummed that book is over, maybe I’ll just read again. Tell me about a book you read that you finished but long to read again.
