When Heaven Touches Earth

It's not that I haven't had anything to write lately.. But that I've had too much to write.. In the past week, I've developed a marketing plan for K-mart to become a real competitor of Walmart, for Sixflags to rebound in it's industry (neither of these things did anyone ask me for or is paying me for but I'm sure I'd give it free to anyone that was willing to listen to me). I've tossed around ideas about heaven and contemplated if I'm focusing my life in a direction in which Heaven will feel like home to me. I've dreamed up different paths our church should take and wondered which path would be God's favorite and I'm working on a new mom blog with one of my favorite people, and I'll be sharing that with you soon. But as you can see, none of these things go together so every time I sit down to write about them, I find myself typing, deleting, typing deleting.. Not knowing where to start..

But, there was a moment tonight that I would like to freeze in my mind forever.. The girls beg to sleep with each other all week. We only allow them to do that on Friday night because they giggle or fight,depending on the Friday night, and they keep each other awake. This works out nicely on a night when we can sleep in the next day so on Friday nights, we throw them in there together and let them keep each other awake. Before I came to bed tonight (currently laying in bed, got to love a laptop)I went to check on them and saw this..


It's funny to me that sometimes we go through life making it so much more complicated than it has to be and waiting for that one huge moment. Yet, it's moments like these that I look at my children and it takes my breath away and I know that I've caught a glimpse of Heaven.

Blessings,

Dana

Awwwww!! There are nights when we check on the boys (the older two share a room) and they are in bed together. It's really a great feeling. :)

:) SO sweet, made me cry too!

and you forgot to mention your plan to save America. That one is my favorite.

I'm putting in my vote for you to write about heaven and what that could actually mean. You probably know my view, but after your picture, I suspect anything supernatural would just be a let down.

Picture is so sweet - made me cry (tears of joy,) and gave me a glimpse of heaven too. Write KMart and 6 Flags - somebody should pay you for all these ideas and insight.
