So if there is a Heaven, How Big is it?

And for that matter, is the other place bigger, slightly bigger, a whole lot bigger or possibly even smaller?

You see the experts figure that so far the overall population of the earth has exceeded 100 billion folks since man first appeared on earth so a good portion of those folks are already there. The current population of this planet is around 7.5 billion and always getting bigger. Since it can be crowded to absolutely underpopulated on this Earth (depending upon where you live), is Heaven crowded like New York or Tokyo-style or are there places like Alaska, the Sahara Desert or Antarctica where there is a lot more room to move around before you bump into your neighbour? OK maybe the Sahara Desert is more likely for the other place.

Do you need to use the bathroom in Heaven? Well, if you do, the line-ups could be rather long don’t you think? I had a friend that said in her beliefs that Heaven is a place where you would never feel pain or want for anything. So I would think that in her Heaven you would not need to go to the bathroom since it can be painful sometimes and you certainly wouldn't want to wait in any line-up which would just add to the pain. Who would get the job of cleaning up those bathrooms??

Do you have to sleep in Heaven, or are you always awake and aware of what is going on around you, and maybe even aware of the current happenings on the planet you just left which brings up another question. Are there people from other planets in Heaven? Do they speak the same language as you and do all the other folks from other countries speak the same language so you can all understand each other?

Do they play sports in Heaven? And what kind of games would you possibly play? Her phrase “you would never feel pain or want for anything” kind of makes you wonder about sports because my experience with sports involved pain and someone has to lose so it makes it harder to want for that one since the other guy or gal feels the pain of losing.

So realistically, Heaven is a personal thing for each and every person around you. It is what each one believes it to be for them, and there is not much point in you trying to figure it all out. You already have enough confusion in your life to try and figure that one out. It is either going to be there or it isn't and you won’t know whether you go there or to the other place until you pass on. So hopefully you are in no hurry to find out the answer and can enjoy your time here on Earth. We are all going to be dead for a very long time, so maybe it is better not to rush the process but that is my personal belief. It is up to you with what you do with your life and we should just learn to respect that for what it is.

Maybe we do all end up meeting each other in Heaven. How do you explain some of those folks to your Mom? Do they serve hors d’oeuvres and refreshments all the time or pizza and beer or cabbage rolls and whiskey or cake and ice cream? This stuff is all way beyond my little pea brain and I can wait for the answers to those questions.

Heaven Can Wait and yes that was a really good movie too. Or there was more than one? Do they show movies in heaven? They better because she loves movies.
