Heaven, Hell and really big forks

Today, I learned something new, as tought by an ancient Roman Catholic Priest.
He taught us in today's funeral service what Heaven and Hell were like.
Just when you thought you had a good idea of these, then comes this...
He proceded to tell us that Hell was like the greatest banquet you've ever seen. With anything you could imagine on the buffet. All of your favorite foods layed out before you. (Kind of like a Royal Carribean Buffet) The only rule to eat at this lavish buffet was that you had to use utinsels. You see, these utinsels are 8 feet long. So everyone there goes hungry.

Then he went on to describe Heaven. He told us it was like the greatest banquet you've ever see. With anything you could imagine on the buffet. All of your favorite foods layed out before you. (Kind of like a Royal Carribean Buffet) The only rule in Heaven to eat at this lavish buffet is that you have to use utinsels. You see, these utinsels are 8 feet long. So everyone there feeds the person across from them and they eat like kings and queens.

His point was that people need to help eachother and not try to do everything on there own. But I sure am glad that he cleared up what Heaven and Hell were like because that whole streets paved with gold just didn't excite me. Gold is a very soft metal and I'm sure that there would be more potholes than a Detroit freeway.

So, now we know.

Good lesson. Now let's start helping eachother in small ways every day. Just think of all the 'smooth streets' we'll create!

Stumbled upon your wonderful blog by chance and am really enjoying dipping into your archives, Stew! You have a lovely outlook on life, and death, and express yourself with just the right amounts of humour and seriousness! I am not a blogger, so cannot promote you, but I do feel this would be well merited. I hope you keep on writing and sharing your observations and experiences in such a gentle and compassionate way!
