What is heaven like? See the love and wonders of heaven through the eyes of a child.
"My Fastest Animal" is number three in the Christian book series for kids. Read about the love and wonders of heaven with your children.
God has been taking me on visits to heaven. Many times I see
myself as a child. It is such a privilege to go and see what heaven
looks like. It never ceases to amaze me!
When the Lord does special things for us, often they are to be shared with others. Just recently the Lord told me to do paintings of some of the things He has been showing me in heaven. The plan is to do about twenty paintings.
My Fastest Animal will be a picture book about visiting heaven. It will answer
questions about what will be in heaven. The purpose of the book is to
let people of all ages enjoy visiting heaven.
The artwork will be from a child's perspective. I have been an artist for many years, but I have never done children's illustrations. It will be a big change from my current work. It's going to take some time to get the paintings done.
We will see many of the same things in heaven that are on earth. There is a river flowing from the throne of God, mountains, ocean, jungle, beautiful hills and valleys, forests, our houses (mansions) and cities.
So the answer to what does heaven look like is - Heaven looks very similar to earth. God made it that way. We will see many of the same things we have on earth, only they are magnified. They are perfect and so beautiful, beyond imagination.
God made things in heaven for us all to enjoy. He wants us to come visit Him in heaven and ultimately come there to live. Heaven is very large, it's not just one city like I used to think. There are many things to do, lots of heavenly adventures and tons of fun in heaven.
God's made the animals with His loving hand. They are here for us to enjoy on earth. They will also be in heaven for everyone to enjoy.
We will see many of our beloved animals in heaven. They have a home there, the same as people. Many of my heavenly adventures involved animals.
Jesus took me for a ride on His white horse. It was amazing, it could fly above the clouds and go underwater. No, it did not have wings. It just has the ability to move thru space. After an amazing ride the horse bowed down on one knee to let me off.
All of the sudden, I saw a big male lion! I jumped, but Jesus said, "Don't be afraid, nothing will hurt you in heaven." So I went over and sat down beside the lion, leaned up against his soft, dark mane and rested after the exhilarating horse ride.
Then I saw a cheetah. The Lord said, "Do you want to ride him? He's my fastest animal." Hesitantly I got on the cheetah. He took off. I leaned forward and grabbed a hold behind his head.
Oh my, he was fast! So fast!
Suddenly we came upon a group of gazelles. Oh no, the cheetah will scare them! But no, they started jumping and leaping for joy at seeing the cheetah. There is no fear in heaven. Everything and everyone gets along and enjoys each other.
There are cities in heaven. One time the Lord asked me if I would like to
see the Golden City. Everything there was gold. The streets and buildings
were gold. It crossed my mind that all the gold was somewhat
glaring to look at. Just then I saw a big green tree and grass. So there is green things there, too.
The Lord said the city is for the martyrs. The city is their reward for them to come visit and enjoy whenever they want. They may choose to live in the Golden City or elsewhere.
God thinks about everything. He is preparing a mansion and a special place for each believer. My desire is for everyone to start visiting heaven and especially move there for eternity!
