Last night the boys and I read the Easter story together (from an Usbourne book). On the final page was a short summary of Jesus spending time with his disciples and then going back to heaven, accompanied by a picture of Jesus and his disciples.
E looked at the image and, prompted by mention of heaven, asked if it was a picture of heaven. I said no and then decided to delve deeper and asked him what he thought heaven was like. Almost immediately he came back with ‘like home’.
At 2 home is the place he feels secure and safe, where he is always with the people he loves and where he can be himself what ever he feels.
What a perfect description of heaven relative to where he is now.
