I have to share something. It's because I mention it anyway now and then when I get a chance to speak to groups and it came up again just a couple of weeks ago. While missing her has been a long 11+ years for me, I think it has been just a matter of minutes for her. I think she knows she is separated for now from Shelly, me, Amber and Bailey, Ryan and Jenny - and now Poppy, but it has been a short wait for her.
You see, I don't think there is really any time in Heaven. The world was created and in that, God started the senescence process - aging. Everything ages and wears out in this 'temporal' world. We grow older until our bodies can't function anymore. The world's resources are being depleted. New cars look great when new, but what do they look like at 10 years old? New homes need major renovation after what, 40-50 years? Everything wears out over TIME.
But in heaven there is eternity, and eternity is exactly that! What would time, if it existed, matter? Besides, Jesus makes all things new. I mean, what's with aging in Heaven? Consider 2 Peter 3:8: But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. Look also at Psalm 90:4: For you, a thousand years are as a passing day, as brief as a few night hours.
So, for my little girl, I truly believe she is in the prime of life and in Heaven's 'time' she has not been away from us more than a split second, or, if I can use the Heavenly conversion table of one day is like a thousand years, it feels to Kayla like she left us 12 minutes ago. Really. Call it my belief or call it my perspective, and I know it's hard to grasp, but "nothing is impossible with God." I have biblical support for what time is like in Heaven and it, too, helps me live through another birthday of Kayla's because I know she is happy in Heaven. In the Lord's love for her little soul, he does not have her missing us for very long~
Try thinking of your lost loved ones this way - those who lived during their time here for Jesus - and you too will see another peace that passes all understanding. Be assured that God is love.
