Children not only have many questions, sometimes they have beautiful answers. In this final chapter of Nannygranne’s stories, we wanted to ask the children what they anticipate about Heaven. Lean in a little closer and gaze through the eyes of these little ones as they look into the windows of God’s Home.
Lilly: I think Heaven will have a pink sky and blue birds and gold dirt and cloud houses and Jesus will smile every time you walk by his house
Caleb: There won’t be any bad guys and no TV’s with news about ISIS.
Kirsten: In one house will be Mary and the next house will be Noah. He will have lots of pets.
Devin: The angels will be the soldiers and when it rains it’ll be chocolate and when the trumpet blows, we’ll all go report to King Jesus.
Scarlett: There will be a big wall with lots of jewels in it that sparkle and a river all around it but no fish and Jesus will be at the gate and he’s all shiny but it’s ok because he’ll let you in and tell you where your family is.
Zoey: I hope everything there is soft and we can go anywhere and don’t have to worry about getting hurt.
Joseph: I think it’ll be all sandy like in the Bible but it’ll be gold sand. Will there be camels?
Harper: My Grandma will be able to walk there.
Hunter: In heaven you can go anywhere and won’t get any stickers or chiggers or snakes because God makes everything perfect there.
Dominic: I’ll be glad to be in Heaven because nobody ever gets in trouble there.
Emily: My teacher said that there’s no nighttime there. I don’t like the dark.
Piper: I heard the preacher say Jesus said that nobody will be married in Heaven. I’m glad because nobody can get divorced.
Ellie: Will we know everyone there? Mommy said there won’t be any stranger danger in Heaven because Jesus won’t let stranger danger be there.
Emmett: My Granny sings a song about no tears in heaven so there’s no crying in Heaven.

Editor’s note: This will be Nannygranne’s last article on this site. We will be shutting down the site in a week or so. We hope you will still continue to have interest in the ZOEY faith series. If you haven’t purchased the set of three books, we hope you will do that today.
Nannygranne is, of course, Anne Coleman. One of her concerns is that she will lose contact with her many readers. In recent months, she has had visits from twenty-seven different countries. Anne plans to continue to help children with her writing. One thing she is working on is a book that will contain many of her WHY TIME stories.
If you would like to stay in touch with Anne, she has given me permission to share her personal email address: Nannygranne@gmail.com.
May God continue to bless you and your children or grandchildren. David Roper
