A Silly Thought

grilling-2491123_960_720Okay, I admit that my mind wrestles with some of the strangest thoughts.  Here’s one of them.  What will I eat in heaven?  I happen to love meat; pork, steak, chicken, seafood, etc. So I wonder, will there be meat in heaven?  It seems to me that killing anything in our glorified home, with the intention of eating it, would be taboo.

I am one of those who believe we will eat in heaven, for enjoyment, not out of need.  So the nagging question continues to rattle around in my head.  It saddenes me a little that the possibility exists meat may never appear on heaven’s menu.

Then, I considered bread.  I do love bread of any kind! I consider a peanut butter and jelly sandwich a food staple to this day.  I also considered fruit and acknowledged how much I love it, especially apples.  The many kinds of cheeses and cheese products I enjoy so much breached my thoughts.  I found myself considering nutritious grains, and the many products made from it like pasta. Veggies, coffee, milk, and other drinks would also be available. Suddenly, I had a reason to smile.  Maybe, just maybe, I could do without meat.  Lol.

I was ready to put the matter to rest until one final thought flashed through my mind, in heaven there will be ice cream and pie!!


Rejoice and be glad for your reward in heaven will be great… Matthew 5:12a
