Yesterdays

The next book I’m reading is ‘The Five People You Meet In Heaven’. I’ve seen this book so many times in stores, but really any book with ‘heaven’ in the title is generally not for me.

Anyways a friend posted this quote on FB and its all I’ve been thinking about all day. And changed my mind about reading this book.

“I figure it’s like in the Bible, the Adam and Eve deal?” the Captain said. “Adam’s first night on earth? When he lays down to sleep? He thinks it’s all over, right? He doesn’t know what sleep is. His eyes are closing and he thinks he’s leaving this world, right?

“Only he isn’t. He wakes up the next morning and he has a fresh new world to work with, but he has something else, too. He has his yesterday.”

The Captain grinned. “The way I see it, that’s what we’re getting here, soldier. That’s what heaven is. You get to make sense of your yesterdays.”

Beautiful.
