Friday Five

From Singing Owl, who is also in Seattle (Hey there SO! Me too, just for the day! Sending you good vibes, since that's what we do out here...)

"....how about we share five "heavenly" things? These can me serious or funny or a combination of the two. What is your idea of a heavenly (i.e. wonderful and perfect)"

1. Family get-together
A beach house with friends and family from all parts of our lives gathered to eat, talk, laugh and play in the sand.

2. Song or musical piece
I'm just trying to go with the first thing that comes to mind, and for some reason, that is the Halleluia Chorus. So I'll go with that.

3. Gift
Hmmm, to give or to receive? Well, I'll go with to give - I always love to give someone a book that they haven't read, and that they will really enjoy. I guess that is what I love to receive, too.

4. You choose whatever you like-food, pair of shoes, vacation, house, or something else. Just tell us what it is and what a heavenly version of it would be.
Are you tired of me talking about the spa? Because a day at the spa would probably be it.

5. And for a serious moment, or what would you like your entrance into the next life to be like?
What, from your vantage point now, would make Heaven "heavenly?"

I know we get to go be with God. I sure dont know what that's like. But I'm curious about it in a good way - I look forward to the next adventure. Favorite song about heaven:

I believe my steps are growing wearier each day
Still I've got a journey on my mind
Lures of this old world have ceased to make me wanna stay
And my one regret is leaving you behind.

If it proves to be his will that I am first to go
And somehow I'll be feeling it will be
When it comes your times to travel like wise don't feel lost
For I will be the first one that you'll see.

I'll be waiting on the far side of banks of Jordan
I'll be sitting, drawing pictures in the sand
And when I see you coming I will rise up with a shout
And come running through the shallow waters, reaching for your hand.
