What do you think life will be like after Jesus returns and we are with Him forever? Or what do you think life is like in heaven now for those who have gone there? I remember thinking about this as a kid when one of my grandparents passed away. I was about 9 years old. I kept hearing that Grandpa was now with the Lord in heaven and life was so much better for him. The only idea I had of heaven came from a picture Bible we had. It portrayed heaven as a city in the distance with golden rays shining out from it. You could see God on a throne above the city or in the city. There was lots of light and clouds.
