That was the 'wee man' question of the week. I had to give it some serious thought. Well, I said slowly, I think it depends on the person. I think heaven will smell of everything you love here on earth, it will sound like everything you love here on earth and it will look like everything you love here on earth.
After careful consideration he decided heaven must look like Lego, smell like McDonald's hamburgers and sound like his dog barking.
Hmmmm. Not a bad combo.
Then I had to think about what my heaven would smell, sound and look like.
When I smell my moms face power and the oil and grease on my dads hands from working with machinery, when I smell freshly baked bread and the smell of a well cleaned house, when the odour of Campbell's book store rises up around me, when Grandpa's pipe smoke envelopes me, that will be the smell of heaven. When I hear my dads harmonica and cows mooing and my mom singing softly as she works, that will be the sound of heaven. When I see the long lane way lined with maple trees and the little grey buildings with yellow shutters that once were home that will be what heaven looks like.
Now.....here's the question. What will heaven smell, sound and look like to you?
Have you ever thought about it?
I'll bet you are thinking about it now. And all thanks to my 'wee man'.
