Josiah's thoughts on heaven

For several months now Josiah has been fascinated by death and heaven. I know, I know, it's strange, but he asks all the time what's going to happen when he dies. It's my fault. He told me that he was going to love Maggie, our dog, forever and ever. I had to go and open my big mouth and point out that someday Maggie would die. I wish I'd kept my big mouth shut!!!

So last week Josiah was talking and talking until I asked him to be quiet for a few minutes. When I told him that he could talk again we had the following conversation:

"When I die and go to heaven can I talk?" he asked.

"Yes," I replied.

"To God?"


"Yeah," he yelled, clapping his hand and jumping up and down. "I love God. Him is my best friend in Heaven. When I die I going to sing Holy, Holy, Holy with Him."

I sure do like that! It's amazing the enthusiasm that little ones have that sometimes we seem to forget about...

Gary wants to know if he is going to sing Holy, holy, holy instead of "This is my story, this is my song"

How sweet! Josiah and Brooke can serenade God with "Holy, Holy, Holy" for all eternity. That is one of Brooke's most favorite songs.

Tell Gary that Blessed Assurance is his very favorite, but he also likes "Holy, Holy, Holy", "Saved a Wretch Like Me" (what he calls Amazing Grace), "Lord has been so good to me", "Come thou Fount of Information" (every blessing), and "Alleluia".
