Day Four - What do I Think Paradise is Like? (2nd post today)

As a SAHM of four munchkins, my first thought of paradise is one hour of peace & quiet, where I am not exhausted. A place where there is no talking back, toys get picked up upon request, the house is always clean, & kids will eat whatever they are served...with NO complaints! Now don't get me wrong. I LOVE my children & would give my life for them. However, there are those days...

But, in all seriousness & after deep reflection, I think the following list sums up my real view of Paradise:

* We would all live in peace. All wars would cease & there would be no division between nations (including w/in the nations themselves.)
* People would care for one another w/out wondering how it would benefit them.
* ALL life would be respected from conception to natural death.
* There would be no more pain & suffering.
* We would walk w/ Jesus among all the angels & saints.

Isn't this what Jesus has promised us, so long as we follow Him? The road to Paradise is long & has many bumps & curves, but if we keep our eyes on the end & ask Jesus for help, we WILL reach the ultimate Paradise...Heaven.
