Yes, the ultimate dilemma.

Your wife tries on her new robe, and asks you "Honey, does this make my butt look big?"

You start to reply in your usual manner, "Oh no, honey, not at all"....and then you look over, and see God eyeing you intently........and you know if you tell her the truth, you are in deep trouble. But, if you lie - you get kicked out of heaven!

What's a man to do? Which is worse?

Hmm; not sure if that one could correctly even be classified a "lie"...

Maybe covered under the "big is relative" clause? For instance, compared to a Volkswagen, not big at all?

You tell her the truth and dare her to say anything about it.

Peter says "In you go! But if you don't mind, would you watch the gate for just a little while? I have to, you know, take a break. You know how it works. Will you, please?" She agrees.

After a minute, her husband succumbs to his injuries, and shows up at the gate! She tells him the rules. "You have to spell a word, before you can get in to heaven." He asks his wife, "What word?" She says, "Chrysanthemum".
No I hadn't and yes it's funny.

Somebody fire up the music!

Consider that music fired up!! Dad sings this song occasionally at church, especially if my grandparents have come to visit. I have heard that he will likely have to make a recording of it to sing at her funeral (she is still going strong having made it to 80+). It is also one of my favorites.

I agree, I thought that was very funny. JL has given me a word to research (I am the one who sends people to the dictionary).


I do not know just how we are going to know where our relatives are, but I would assume that God being loving and merciful will notify those that we have loved of our soon arrival, and then we shall be greeted by them. Further, I imagine that we might be allowed to look up their names in the Book of Life (Heaven's Directory). I have some relatives that I intend to look up as well as a few friends.

I am also sure that God has a special committee that welcomes those who did not know many people who crossed over before them (children and young people or those who parted while new in the faith). Further, being with Jesus will be enough to satisfy even the deepest longings of the soul.
