Snow in Heaven?

Joel asked me the other day, "Mom, do you think there will be snow in heaven?"

"I don't know, honey. I've honestly never thought about that."

"I think there will be, "he said.

"Why?"


"Because I like it," he said. "--And, because God likes it or He wouldn't have made it."


"You're right, " I replied. "He does. The Bible says God makes everything for His pleasure. We just happen to get to enjoy some of the things He makes."


"Not everything?"


"Oh, no, not even half of it. I mean, there are billions of trillions of stars we can't see. There's oodles and gobs of fish in the ocean that even scientists haven't discovered because they live at the bottom. "


"Do you hope there's snow in heaven?" he answered, getting back to his first thought.


"Yes, I do. It's beautiful and I'll have a new body that won't feel cold becaue I don't like the cold."


"I do," he said. "I love the cold, so I think it'll be cold in heaven."
