Jack's Take on Heaven

While riding to MOPS yesterday, Jack was talking about praying, angels, and Russell. Since Russell died Jack has been talking about heaven alot.. It is so amazing how a 4 year old can comprehend so much in his little mind. He was talking about Russell's music and how he wanted to know what his song would be when he went to heaven to be with Jesus. Russell was a incredible musician and he played the fiddle, violin, and wrote music! We have been jammin out on a regular basis to his awesome music. It has brought me a lot of comfort to hear his songs.

So, Jack was asking what his song would be when he went to Heaven. I asked him what he wanted it to be and he said, "We Will" and right away I knew he meant the Queen song "We Will Rock You". I don't think that is the title but ya'll get the point. I just thought it was so precious that he is asking about "his song" when he goes to be with Jesus.. If I can learn anything from the past 2 months since Russell died it's that life is to precious and you need to live your life for today, since tomorrow is not guaranteed. We have to to spread the Good News to everyone, especially our children. They are the hope of the future! God Bless.

They are amazing that way my 4 year old asks a lot of questions about death that I don't think occurred to me at that age.

That is so sweet about Jack. I love his song. As absolutely horrible as Russell's loss has been, it has already helped many people see the importance of love and living every moment. We have Russell's picture on our shelf as soon as we walk into the house. His amazing spirit reminds me of what is important every day. I love my family and am so blessed to have the friends I do. Blessings to you and yours. Thanks for sharing this sweet story!
