Lucky Iowa

Luke 17:21

"... nor will people say, 'Here it is,' or 'There it is,' because the kingdom of God is within you." (NIV)

So the other night while Rojo was eating his dinner, he reminded me that in a few short years we'd all be living in Anaheim, he'd be working at Disneyland, and I would never need to worry about missing him, because we'll live together forever.

"One problem," he said between bites. "Do they have heaven in Anaheim?"

"Heaven isn't a place," I answered, "it's a state of mind, it's within us - it's the part of us that's a part of God."

"No," he said, "heaven is in Des Moines."

Huh. How did I miss that all these years? Des Moines? Maybe I should be rethinking my move... said...

Well then, I dearly much want to move to Des Moines.

And all this time I thought it was in North Dakota.

God, I love him.
