Well, I do. It used to bother me a lot during those first years. It bothered me even more when I was given an invitation by a kind friend whose son was graduating from high school the same year my son would be graduating. They would have been in the same class all of those years together. As I saw her son grow and change, I always wondered if my son was growing and changing in Heaven.
I couldn't imagine James Collins, Jr being any way but a baby as I had last seen him. It was weird to be thinking this as all of what would have been his friends were putting on caps and gowns. I was still stuck back in babyland, and I still am to this very day.
My minister came over to my home to talk to me about it. All he could tell me was what I already could figure out for myself. His body was gone. That much I was sure of. But did he get a Heavenly baby body when he arrived there like a reconizable spiritual body? Does God age? I have always thought God was an old wise spiritual figure. The Bible does say we will recognize our love ones when we get to Heaven. Will my son and my daughter know I am their mother? Will I still be their mother once I get to Heaven? A man and a woman in their marriage vows say to each other as the Bible instructs, "until death us do part." That is scarey. Why? Because will we still be James Collins' and Reita Gale's mother and father? Or will our children just know and recognize us as the parents they would have had on earth?
So many questions!!! Can anyone comment with their 2 cents worth? I hope so! I'm stuck!
