What we long for is not just living forever. What resonates deep in our hearts is a sincere expectation of someday enjoying a life of perpetual good and bounty. That is not a fanciful pipe dream! It is a foreshadowing of Heaven. . . . In our desire to know more about the place where we will spend eternity, we are like kids anticipating a great summer vacation.
~ Daniel Brown, [What the Bible Reveals about Heaven]
