At This Very Moment

At this moment in time,even as I am writing this,(it's 10 36 PM) are we are of Heaven?
I think that at this very moment,(a whole minute has gone by) millions of souls are there.
What did those millions of souls do in that minute? Were they just hanging around, watching TV?
Were they playing with their hobbies? Painting the ceiling? Making plans for tomorrow?
We will be surprised when we get there,I don't believe anyone has the idea of Heaven entirely correct.
They were aware of God and His presence I am sure.
Many generations of my family are there.Many are not I suppose.
My prayer today that all my family and all my extented family members will gather on that golden shore some fine day.
We can have a family reunion!
Can you imagine how happy we will be?
I was so happy to see so many of my family at a picnic last June,it was to me a taste of what was to come. I didn't want it to end,I did want to just stay and hang out with my loved ones.
That minute I mentioned a bit ago is now long gone.The people in Heaven have not wasted a second,although I can't imagine what it is like,it is amazing to think of.
How much I miss you Dad and Mom,how I look forward to seeing you again.
The Bible says this about it, from Isaiah 35.

1 The land that was desolate and impassable shall be glad, and the wilderness shall rejoice, and shall flourish like the lily.2 It shall bud forth and blossom, and shall rejoice with joy and praise: the glory of Libanus is given to it: the beauty of Carmel, and Saron, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the beauty of our God.3 Strengthen ye the feeble hands, and confirm the weak knees.4 Say to the fainthearted: Take courage, and fear not: behold your God will bring the revenge of recompense: God himself will come and will save you.5 Then shall the eyes of the blind be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.6 Then shall the lame man leap as a hart, and the tongue of the dumb shall be free: for waters are broken out in the desert, and streams in the wilderness.7 And that which was dry land, shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water. In the dens where dragons dwelt before, shall rise up the verdure of the reed and the bulrush.8 And a path and a way shall be there, and it shall be called the holy way: the unclean shall not pass over it, and this shall be unto you a straight way, so that fools shall not err therein.9 No lion shall be there, nor shall any mischievous beast go up by it, nor be found there: but they shall walk there that shall be delivered.10 And the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and shall come into Sion with praise, and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.
