Heaven is s a place where everything is perfect and we’ll be reunited with Jesus and our loved ones who were believers. Have you ever wondered what Christmas is like in heaven? The Bible doesn’t tell us, but I’ve found myself pondering the question a lot the past couple years each time Christmas rolls around.
On December 3, 2007, my Grandma Benson died at the age of 78 of a massive heart attack. Christmas Eve was at her house. One of my favorite Christmas memories with Grandma is baking cookies. We made two kinds. We made sugar cookies with different cookie cutters. We also made peanut butter with Hershey’s kisses in the middle.
Everyone would be around the table talking about how the year had been for everyone and Grandma Benson would be right next to me. She would sprinkle the dough with sugar and then roll it out. I would pick up a cookie cutter, she would help me line it up, and then I would press the cookie cutter into the dough. When we couldn’t fit any more cookies on the dough, we’d scoop them up and put them on a cookie sheet and get another one. We’d be at it for hours. We’d make jokes, we’d laugh, she’d ask me how I was doing in school, etc. It was a good feeling to have Grandma right next to me. We made Christmas cookies this year for the time in years. For the first time, Grandma wasn’t there.
The thing I love most about cookies, or anything freshly baked is the smell as it’s in the oven! I also love the warm mouth-watering taste it gives my stomach on the inside because it’s so warm. Grandma was such a servant. When she didn’t have anything to give, she gave. I like to think that she is standing alongside Jesus right now preparing a feast for everyone there. I like to picture heaven like a huge bakery. I can’t wait to share cookies with Grandma in heaven. The best part is in heaven we won’t have to worry about calories because there won’t be such a thing. Since heaven is a place where everything is perfect, we’ll taste the best cookies ever made! See you in heaven Grandma!
