On Heaven

The following conversation was overheard while the kids were eating breakfast on their map-of-the-world place mats.

Caleb: Grace, you said Russia was the biggest country but you were wrong. Heaven is the biggest country.

Grace: Well, Heaven is not a country.

Caleb: But it's the biggest in the whole world.

Grace: (with growing impatience) Yes, but it's not even in the world.

Caleb: Oh yeah! Heaven is way up in the sky behind the clouds.

Grace: Well, it's not just in the sky because you go in an airplane over the clouds but you can't see Heaven.

Caleb: Well, that's because you can't take an airplane to Heaven. Only Jesus can take you to Heaven.
