GIVE ME HEAVEN A LITTLE LONGER

GIVE ME HEAVEN A LITTLE LONGER

I'm in no hurry to live and die...

Though death isn't my finisher it's only a change of address...

Some say we can return as quick as we'd like because, our lessons ended to short and to sudden...

We never really felt we were quite finished...

Some say it could take forty-eight days and some say we must wait over one thousand five hundred years...

Maybe, we had a wonderful family and so we must come back as an abandoned baby left in a sack to die...

No one really knows other than the miracle in life we may have been given or found...

The only one who knows the truth is the spirit who lived and died and the journey in which it takes...

Maybe, we can stay in Heaven until our loved ones show up one by one...

Give me Heaven a little longer and let me live surrounded by the agape love and allow me to fly free forever and ever...

If I must return, may each life make me better...

Hugs...

Beautiful, Sparrow. 
I like your mind, I think about these type of things all the time(which is why I'm a mental patient), but then my faith wanes, and my straightjacket becomes too tight, and my hair gets all amiss, and I'm a big mess. 
But I really, really loved that, and your writing, and mind as always, and may I just say that I don't think any more lives could make you any better, you've reached the pinnacle of best. 

Thanks, 

Matthew.

Hello Matthew...

I'm sorry to hear about your straight jacket dilema...

You might want to watch Cartoons, laughter is great medicine...

Sometimes, I think about if reincarnation is real and a possibility I do hope with every life I receive I do become a better person, Animal, whatever I could be made into...

Thank you very much for your kind comment and support!

Hugs...

Thanks Beautiful Sparrow, 

I wish I could watch cartoons, but I can't change the channel(because of this darn straightjacket), and it's stuck on a marathon of Lifetime movies with the plot that a crazy lady who is unable to have children steals another ladies baby while posing as a fake nurse, then tries to slip into a family, by murdering the mother, because she's obsessed with the husband, and also wants to take over the wife's job as President of a billion dollar advertising firm(even though she's dumber than a box of rocks). So, there are 46 of those movies on in a row. 

You couldn't be a better person, Stace. Honestly. 

Your friend, 

Matthew.

Hello Matthew...

I take it you don't have Alexa?

Yell for Help...

You need to change that Channel...

😂😂😂😂😂

Those Movies probably have made it difficult for Nanny's to get a job...

😏

Thanks for the smiles!

Hugs again...

LOL! That's so true, Stace! That's the next marathon! Nannies who are in love with the husband so try to murder the wife, and then the kids because they don't like her, and then steal a new baby from the hospital because she can't have kids and the husband misses the ones she murdered, and then she has to murder her former boyfriend, who is blackmailing her because she doodled a yak when she lived in Tibet while acting as a nanny to a shepherd's kids...who she stole...and murdered. Gotta love Lifetime. lol. 
I DO have Alexa, but she's mad at me because I talked to a Google IHome Mini, and won't respond to my requests. Now, she's impersonating the Google Home Mini, and trying to murder it, because she's upset with me, but still won't talk to me! It's a Lifetime Alexa. lol. 

You are so cool, Sparrow! 

Matthew.

Dear Sparrowsong, 
Allah the Almighty has created the human being in the best creation and gave human this life to spend a period of testing on the earth and then the human will die and be resurrected as human , and will not be resurrected  as an animal or reincarnated another creature.

Best Regards

Hello Ebrahim...

Different Cultures believe different things...

Some don't believe in it at all...

Some don't believe a soul is reincarnated to a body and I don't know anyone who died and returned with every true answer to every question...

Scientists have been wrong...

Nutritionists have been wrong...

Lawyers and Jurors have been wrong...

Teachers and Books have been wrong too...

Doctors and Preachers have been wrong too...

Thank you for your kind comment!

😊

Hugs...

IT IS QUALITY THAT COUNTS, NOT QUANTITY. On the vast majority of occasions !!!  :) :)
If you desire heaven, you first have to strive for the perfect definition. Any fault in your design would seem to suggest it is otherwise. NOTHING IS PERFECT. Events from history and studies of the landscape show you this.
YOU LIVE TO LEARN WHAT IS BEST THROUGH EXPERIENCE. Experience over many lifetimes would put you in a better position to design something credible that most would like to be involved with !! However, surely life with it's imperfections is the grandest design ? An old addage says that " IT IS THE FLAWS THAT MAKE SOMETHING PERFECT. "
Heaven can then be a place on Earth !! Do you not think ?
Wishing you well.

Hello Romeo...

I think by now it should already be if flaws makes everything perfect...

It's said you have to go through Hell before you get to Heaven...

I believe that if you want to get to Heaven, then you follow the Directions turn by turn...

No different than following directions to somewhere you've never been before...

Keep your eye on the Prize!

That's what I think...

Thank you for your kind comment, support and the blessings indeed!

Best wishes and blessings to you!

😊

Hugs!

" I DO NOT SUPPOSE YOU HAVE A MAP ? "  :) 
Wishing you all the best in your endeavours.
PLAY ON WORDS.....if there is nothing better, to do !!
See the light, to get there quicker ! But, not as the crow flies, most probably. That, would be boring. Would it not ? :)

Hello Romeo...

😊

Sometimes the short cut isn't always the best route to take...

That would appear to be quite boring indeed!

There's many paths by the obvious trails but, it seems that some just keep going in Circles...

I do have a Map and the way isn't supposed to be easy and if you go too far ahead, too fast, or put the Map down and follow your instincts it could end up in a place in which hopefully there's a place to turn around and find the place back on the Map as long as it didn't get wrecked...

Chances are there's another copy somewhere close by...

Thank you again...

Hugs, blessings, and best wishes!
