You know how sometimes, time flies? Other times it seems to barely move. Time flies? How about vacation time. Time crawls? How about…standing in a long, slow line at the market, when you are in a hurry.
My (95 year old) grandma said, when asked which decade went the fastest, “I went to bed 49 (years old), and woke up 60”. This being the case…who cares what others think/say? It will be over in ten minutes!
OK. ….How to explain “time” as it exists in a place with NO time…….?
Every minute in heaven is kinda’ like, say, a decade on earth. Looking at it this way, if we’re LUCKY, we’ll “live” for 10 minutes (Heaven “time”)! So, that leaves us with THE question, could you “be good” for ten minutes? Truth be told, only HAVING ten minutes to live, I’d be trying to get as much “helping” done as I possibly could.
That is EXACTLY how it will feel, once we’re in the great beyond! Just like in old age, where years, and even decades, seem to have flown by, once they’re over. “Life” is just a blip on the screen of eternity. Think about that….it changes EVERYTHING. For instance…why worry? In “ten minutes” it (life’s worries) will be over!
Say…a loved one has died. They’re missed so very much…yeah, for “ten minutes”, until you are there as well! You want to relieve life’s stress? It too will be…forgotten…in “ten minutes” (Heaven “time”). So don’t worry about it….see how easy it was for me to say that? I can say it, I just have trouble doing it!
One more thing…once you’ve “gone on”, and you know that your whole life was just a blip in time, you’ll realize… THE END is ALWAYS near!
