Yes, you're right - I'm sure there are a lot of interesting stories but I like to go to the Word of God first so I will know if I can believe the stories. Did you know that heaven is a Hebrew word -shamayim- which literally means 'fire and water'.
Mat 3:11 (54) I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He (Jesus) will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.. This is the entrance to the 'real heaven' that God has placed within us.
I think when I see Jesus I'm just going to say THANK YOU that you changed my heart to love you!
