Forever in Candyland



I've been thinking about Heaven.

Eternal bliss
No worries
No troubles
No strife
Forever and Ever and Ever and Ever

and Ever
in some place better than Here.

When I was a kid, I used to play a game called Candyland.
It was so fun and exciting
weaving my way around the board to the castle.

Ahhh, I so loved Candyland.

But eventually, I got bored with it.
It was too easy.

I moved on to more challenging things.

I do so love a challenge.
The thrill of pushing beyond my limits

Mastering things beyond
what I ever thought I could do.

I love the rubix cube of life,
and the infinite number of quests.

I love to study,
learn,
solve,
create,
wonder,
dream,
hope,
prevail

There was a time when I would have jumped at the chance
to spend Eternity in Candyland,

But Eternity is a
Very
Very
Very
long time.

Indeed you still have the wonder of a child. Don't ever lose it.
