Tag! You’re It!
I’m glad you shaved. You were a prickly mess!
Me: Are you going to be late again tonight?
Me: Good. What’s for dinner?
Kara: You have big nose holes. It’s disturbing.
Me: Big nose holes means I’m genetically superior because I can breathe more easily.
Kara: Big nose holes means you have big nose holes.
Me: Big nose holes means I have big nose holes? It’s no wonder I never win an argument.

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.
