A Heavenly Friday Five

I am in Seattle assisting with family stuff and preparing to attend a memorial service (Saturday) for my sister who died of complications of early-onset Alzheimer's disease.

I am not grieving much, since the shock and tears and goodbyes and losses have been many and have occurred for a long time now. I am mostly relieved that my wonderful sister and best friend is free from pain and confusion, and I am thinking of eternity. That sounds somber, but I don't mean it to be. I decided to have a little fun with the idea. So how about we share five "heavenly" things? These can me serious or funny or a combination of the two.

What is your idea of a heavenly (i.e. wonderful and perfect):

1. Family get-together

2. Song or musical piece
3. Gift

4. You choose whatever you like-food, pair of shoes, vacation, house, or something else. Just tell us what it is and what a heavenly version of it would be.

5. And for a serious moment, or what would you like your entrance into the next life to be like?
What, from your vantage point now, would make Heaven "heavenly?"

I am not sure how much time I'll have on my BIL's computer, but will read as many responses as I can, and I'll look forward to reading others when I get home next week.

Let us know in comments if you play. Post a direct link to your blog entry in your comment using the following formulation:<a href="the url of your blog post goes here">what you want the link to say goes here</a>For a complete how-to, http://www.blogger.com/click.

  1. Go here to see mine. I hope you all have fun playing this one. I did forget to say Heaven will have mountains. Lots and lots of mountains. :-)

  9. (((SO)))

    I won't be playing on my blog today since my answer to number 1 might include the phrase "someone else's family"--and my family reads my blog. But I think this is a great five! Thanks singing owl!

  11. Oh, Singing Owl, this is a lovely Friday Five - thank you! I played here, and it ended up taking a little more out of me than I'd expected. I can't wait to read everyone else's plays.

  29. Singing Owl, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. It's very late, and our Presbytery meeting starts very early in the morning, so I'm off to bed. I'll read some of the other Friday Fives after the weekend...
