i'm thinking about heaven today because i am leading this discussion tonight (thanks for the comments yesterday). but it seems particularly appropriate today because the guy i wrote about several weeks ago here, whom i called jh, died yesterday. it blows my mind that six weeks ago i was visiting him at the hospital after "routine" surgery, a surgery he never really recovered from. i am full of sorrow at our loss, and for the loss his family is feeling so deeply.
and as i think about heaven today, i know that jh is singing a new song. he is no longer singing about a new heart, but he is singing in his new home, his eternal home. see you when we get there, jh.
