Does Heaven have a Garden Shop?

This morning Football Superstar and I were having a pretty deep conversation about Heaven.
I always know that when I have these conversations with my husband, they become deep........and sometimes intimidating of his knowledge. It's also a wonderful reminder to me just how strong my husbands faith is......and how important it is for him to "teach" his family right here right now.
So probably "intimidating" is not the correct word to use...... I find myself in awe with his words and passion as he speaks.

So, what is Heaven like? As we continue our conversation we take a break for more coffee.
The sun is breaking through the morning clouds- and a small birds chirp is as clear as the path the sun is creating. As I sip my delicious french vanilla coffee, I couldn't help but think about the scenery of Heaven. Are there flowers? If so....will there be sunflowers and daisies? Silly isn't it for a grown woman to wish for flowers in heaven.
Heaven.....the new Jerusalem......what will it be like?

I say to Football Superstar........." I wonder if I will work in a garden when I get to heaven?" Quietness and beauty.
Calm faces and God loving people.
Seeing those you loved and those who became part of your journey.

Because God loves us with a Never Stopping,
Never Giving Up, Unbreaking,
Always and Forever Love~
Heaven is breaking through~
He is sending us a Light from Heaven
To shine on us like the sun
To shine on those who live in darkness
And in the shadow of death
To guide our feet into the way of peace.

I smell beautiful flowers.

Love & Peace


  1. Awesome post, Lis. Haven't been around blogland much these past days... so I only got to read this post now. Heaven is one of my favorite topics...

    Reading this post was such a delight to my heart!


  2. My vision of heaven grew after reading from Eldridge "Scared Desire" and "Wild at Heart"..he tended to expand heaven for me....and I do believe we will be doing the things we love, which were instilled in us by our Lord
