A writing friend of mine bought me the Mitch Albom book, ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’. It might be one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read. My friend had considered buying Albom’s other popular work, ‘The Five People you Meet in Heaven’ but didn’t.
I was glad she plumped for Tuesdays. It wasn’t long after my father died and I couldn’t cope with reading fictional portrayal, even a gentle one, about Heaven.
My dad would be 88 today, he’s been gone just over 4 years now, and though I picked up a copy since, it’s still sitting unread on my shelf. I don’t disapprove of anyone writing fiction about Heaven, I just can’t bring myself to read it. I’m not fussed on non-fiction work about the subject either. I was never a fan of it, but since my dad (and also a dear friend) died at the beginning of 2014, I’ve completely steered clear of it.
I find it interesting that, though there are records of people seeing glimpses of heaven from earth, but there is no record of anyone raised from the dead and describing what it was like. What a pity. 🙂
I’m happy to wait and see for myself.
