I believe that time in heaven is nothing like time on earth. And for loved ones who have gained their eternal residence in heaven, I believe time stands still.
I'm sure there's a Godly explanation for time on heaven versus time on earth. For example, heaven is a place with no more suffering and no more tears. He knows the hearts of His children and recognizes time away from loved ones can be a time of great suffering. So therefore, time in heaven must be but a blink of an eye before we are reunited with loved ones.
But on earth, time continues to tick by. 1 year. 12 months. 365 days. 8760 hours. 525,600 minutes. 31,536,000 seconds.
One year ago, we sat by my mom's side. Held her hand. Stroked her hair. Whispered sweet words of love. Experienced ... peace.
And then God took her home.
God comforts those who mourn. He leads them beside still waters and provides timeless peace.
He knows my heart. He knows my suffering. He knows my grief. He refreshes my soul and gives me peace for this day. He is good.
Until we meet again ...
