John in the book of Revelation said, "I saw a new heaven and a new earth. I saw the Holy City, The New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God.
The angel told John the words of God, "Listen! I am coming soon! I will bring rewards with me. I will repay each person for what he has done. I am the beginning of all things. And I am the end of all things. People who have obeyed me will be blessed. They will get to eat the fruit from the tree of life. They can go through the gates into the heavenly city.
This last book in the Bible tells us about that beautiful city. It is described as a very, very large city made of pure gold. The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles. Its twelve foundations are decorated with every kind of precious jewel. The high wall had twelve gates and each gate is made of a huge pearl. The names of the twelve tribes of Israel are written on the gates and the gates are open all the time; they never close.
The street is also made of gold that is clear like glass. There is no sun and there is no moon there. The glory of God and Jesus provide the light. Nighttime never comes.
Everything there is good because nothing evil will be able to enter in. There will be no more sadness and no more crying. What a beautiful place!
Jesus said, "I have sent my angel to tell you these things. I am the bright, Morning Star. Yes, I am coming soon."
Come Lord Jesus!

What does this story
mean to me?
Think of the most beautiful place you have ever visited. Maybe it was a place in the mountains or in the forest. Maybe it was a place by the water. Think of the happiest time in your life. Heaven is all this and more. John describes it in terms of beauty that his readers can relate to.
I want to see that place someday, don't you? Let's live our lives in such a way that we will be prepared to enter it. Jesus can make us pure so we will be able to live there.
You can read about heaven in the last book of the Bible in Revelation, chapters 21 and 22
Memory VerseFor God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

What Happened When Grandma Died
By Peggy Barker / Concordia Publishing House
The death of a loved one is hard enough for and adult to understand and accept. Even more profound is a child's sense of confusion and loss upon the death of someone near and dear. In What Happened When Grandma Died, Peggy Barker presents life and death in terms a child can understand easily. She addresses sensitively the contradictions a young child faces upon hearing a deceased relative is "in heaven with Jesus" and then seeing the body in the funeral setting. Scripture verses help the child understand the experience and reinforce the joyful hope of heaven. A simple story, a comforting message, and a solid Christian context make What Happened When Grandma Died a book to be shared by young and old alike whenever a dear one dies.
