Heaven is for Real

Wow! What a book! Angela gave it to me on Sunday to read... One nite Curt wasn't feeling good, so he went to bed and I stayed up on the couch and read. I read for 2 hours and got to a chapter and HAD to stop. It's about 2 sisters. It talks about the mom who had a miscarriage, and the little boy, okay, I am jumping the gun here.
This little boy is basically dying from a ruptured appendix. Once he goes into surgery, he leaves his body and goes to Heaven. Sometime after the surgery the little boy says something to catch the parents attention. They finally figure it all out and realize that the little boy went to Heaven. The little boy talks so much about Heaven and how grand and awesome it is! That Jesus is just HUGE, but he is FILLED with soooo much LOVE! There is WAY more, but I don't even want to talk about it, you NEED to read this book!!!!! Anyways, so back to where I HAD to stop... The mom had a miscarriage and the 2 kids didn't know about it. One day he was talking about his sister, and the mom mentioned something and the little boy said, no, the one in heaven. It just touched me so much, (I know I am not even doing this book justice!), but my point is, I've always wondered about my baby. I didn't know the sex of my baby, I don't know if my baby is grown, will I REALLY recognize my baby? But the boy saw his sister and KNEW it was his sister. His sister didn't have a name because they didn't know the sex of their baby either. But since they didn't name the baby, the baby didn't have a name. I know, I am rambling...

The boy also got to SEE Jesus and knows what he looks like! But since he was so little, he really couldn't say what was wrong with all the Jesus pictures out there! His parents would ask, does this look like Jesus? The boy would say no.. Then finally one day the dad heard about the little girl who had visions from God and would paint those visions. One of her paintings is of Jesus. They asked their little boy if this looked like Jesus and his eyes just lit up and said yes, it really looked like Him! I remember hearing about this girl a while ago... Akiane Kramarik is her name...

(won't let me post a video, so will do it in another blog.. ;))
Here she talks about it a bit more. She does it in better words than I can...

But I keep thinking about the Angel I saw over my dad when he was in the hospital, the day before he died. The Angels eye were the SAME exact green as what this girl paints Jesus' eyes. He was filled with light and love. He was HUGE, but not scary, even though he was the angel of death. He was the one who took my dad to be in that beautiful place called Heaven.

I can NOT wait til it's my turn! I want to see God, I want to see those beautiful colors that we don't even know about! I want to see my baby and my dad and those other loved ones! I don't want to get comfortable here, but I want to tell others so that they will have the chance to get to Heaven as well, because Heaven is for REAL, there is NO doubt about that!

Wow! I definitely want to read this. I'm guessing it's based on a true story? I also lost a baby. Halfway through my pregnancy I was in a bad car accident and the baby didn't make it. I found out the next day that it was a boy. But I know he's in heaven. I just wonder the same things as you though...will he still be a baby, or grown? I guess we won't know until it's our time. If you enjoyed that book, then you may also enjoy Embraced by the Light by Betty J. Eadie. She also has a second book: The Awakening Heart, also great. It's all about how she died and also experienced heaven and meeting loved ones beyond this life. Thanks so much for this post and I will let you know when I get around to getting that book! I can't wait to read it after hearing your review of it.
