That is the question.
I was sitting here today realizing that I don’t believe that spouses are together in Heaven and it really scared me. If you’re wondering, there is one simple question that I can’t answer that makes me believe that we’re not with our spouses in Heaven. If a woman has a husband that dies and then she remarries, to which husband is she with in Heaven and why? Another possible concern is children that die before they’re old enough to be in a relationship or adults that never find that special someone.
I found a blog that pointed to Matthew 22:23-30 which states the following:
23That same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question. 24“Teacher,” they said, “Moses told us that if a man dies without having children, his brother must marry the widow and raise up offspring for him. 25Now there were seven brothers among us. The first one married and died, and since he had no children, he left his wife to his brother. 26The same thing happened to the second and third brother, right on down to the seventh. 27Finally, the woman died. 28Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her?”
29Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. 30At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.
I want to get everyone’s views about why they think or don’t think spouses are together in Heaven as they are on Earth. Please be as descriptive as possible.

I bought a 42″ Vizio LCD HD TV at Sam’s on my birthday. A week and a half later I figured I should find out what the return policy was to make sure if I needed to bring it back for whatever reason I could do so before my time was up.
I meandered to the customer service desk where I asked a middle-aged woman what the return policy was on LCD TVs. She informed me that it was 6 months. From the way she stuttered I figured I should get a second opinion.
I went to the electronics department where I found an employee standing right beside a LCD TV. I asked him what the return policy was for LCD TVs and he replied 90 days. I told him that the lady at customer service told me 6 months and he assured me they were wrong and that if I had my receipt I could bring it in whenever.
I said, “so 90 days or whenever?”
“That’s right, sir,” he remarked.
At this point I’m obviously quite sure that no one had a clue what they were talking about. We continued shopping and when we checked out I stopped two more female employees who gave me conflicting answers.
1) 6 Months
2) 30 Days
I questioned the employee’s answer and she told me she wasn’t sure so I should ask one of the two managers standing over yonder. At this point I’m very curious to see what the “authority figure” at the store has to say.
I walked up behind Dean, the manager, and said, “Excuse me sir. What is the return policy on LCD TVs?”
“Do you have the receipt?”
“Well there you go.”
I’m not sure what to think about the whole situation but I figured if I documented it here I’d have at least a little evidence when they tell me I can’t return it in 38 years.
I guess we’ll find out!
If anyone’s wondering, my intentions are totally legitimate. I bought this TV shortly before thanksgiving (before the good deals come out) but I do have some beef with the TV. The contrast ratio is only 1000:1 compared to slightly higher priced models who blow that away with 5000:1 and higher. When I watch a fairly dark scene everything is washed out and the detail disappears. I’m hoping I can find a good deal after thanksgiving and return this Vizio.
I went upstairs to grab a pair of scissors and found this scary-looking thing:
Does anyone happen to know what it is?
