The Featherbed of God
January 11, 2017

Many people have tried to describe Heaven –
here’s my take:

Heaven is like a particular frequency
on the radio dial constantly broadcasting
all the music you really love plus some great new stuff,
interspersed with inspired messages of peace and good will.
All you have to do is tune your spiritual antenna to that vibration
and you will enjoy a fantastic inner sound track 
to your best possible life.

Heaven is like a big hug by your favorite grandparent.
Heaven is like a much anticipated family reunion 
where everyone you meet is part of your family,
and it’s always a great time.

Heaven is like going to the store to spend a lot of money
on something you really want, 
but when you get to the register
the clerk tells you it’s on 100% discount,
and would you like another for free as well?

Heaven is a perfect day at the beach
that is constantly fascinating and never ends.

I like to think of God’s Love
as a big featherbed 
that I can fall back into
whenever things become too much to bear.
That is Heaven to me.
