December BOOK GIVEAWAY!!!!

This month I'm giving away 90 Minutes in Heaven, by Don Piper with Cecil Murphy.

On the way home from a conference, Don Piper's car was crushed in an accident. Medical personnel pronounced him dead instantly. Ninety minutes later, he returns. Now he shares his life-changing story with you.

All you need to do to enter the contest is to leave a comment here on my blog in the month of December. I'll draw a name at the end of the month and send you 90 Minutes in Heaven.(Be sure to leave your email address or I won't be able to contact you!)

Have fun!

Heaven in Words

Often times as a writer I find myself at a loss for words to describe a scene or to explain the feelings of a character. There has been several times I simply have to sit back and say, "Okay, God. Help!"

The thought of what heaven is like makes me realize just how inadequate the English language is. The Bible describes it with gates of pearl and streets of gold. No sorrow, no pain, and an eternity of praising God.
I can't imagine anything better than being in the presence of God and being able to worship Him for all time. The beauty of heaven, the pure happiness that must radiate from every corner, and the fact that nothing else will matter but being there with Him. That seems hard to imagine, doesn't it? What words do we possibly have that could describe it?
I don't think we'll ever know until we're there, do you?
