- Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Letters from Heaven Book Review
Letters from Heaven is a unique creation by Calvin Miller. The book is a compilation of letters written to people that were instrumental in his life. C.S. Lewis, Johnny Cash and Farrah Fawcett are two familiar names, as well as many others. There are quite a few people that are not commonly known but they are just as important. Some of the letters mention regrets while others are full of praise, just like life. Calvin Miller made me think about the people that are special to me. There are so many! My immediate family, of course, but then there are also the unsung heroes (to me) that inspired me, believed in me, and moved me through words and/or actions. There are also apologies that need to be made. I am considering writing letters to these people. We never know when we will be called to heaven so now is the time to say things we need to say.
Letters to Heaven is not the best book I've ever read, but it truly made me stop and think. I believe that's what the author had in mind. He wants us to make the most of every day and to acknowledge those that are precious to us. It's a book full of thoughts, emotions and love. Read Letters from Heaven and be inspired.
