"Where are there lots of colors, Colton?" "In Heaven, Dad. That's where all the rainbow colors are!" ~ Todd Burpo
"Yeah, she said she just can't wait for you and Daddy to get to heaven."...From that moment on, the wound from one of the most painful episodes in our lives, losing a child we had wanted very much, began to heal." ~ Todd Burpo
"What is childlike humility? It's not the lack of intelligence, but the lack of guile. The lack of an agenda. It's that precious, fleeting time before we have accumulated enough pride or position to care what other people might think. The same un-self-conscious honesty that enables a three-year-old to splash joyfully in a rain puddle, or tumble laughing in the grass with a puppy, or point out loudly that you have a booger hanging out of your nose, is what is required to enter heaven. It is the opposite of ignorance—it is intellectual honesty: to be willing to accept reality and to call things what they are even when it is hard." ~ Todd Burpo
"It's fun to talk about heaven, about the throne of God and Jesus and Pop and the daughter we thought we had lost but will meet again someday. But it's not fun to talk about how we got there." ~ Todd Burpo
"I smoothed Colton's blanket across his chest and tucked him in snug theway he liked—and for the first time since he started talking about heaven, Iintentionally tried to trip him up. "I remember you saying you stayed withPop," I said. "So when it got dark and you went home with Pop, what didyou two do?"Suddenly serious, Colton scowled at me. "It doesn't get dark in heaven,Dad! Who told you that?"I held my ground. "What do you mean it doesn't get dark?""God and Jesus light up heaven. It never gets dark. It's always bright."The joke was on me. Not only had Colton not fallen for the "when it getsdark in heaven" trick, but he could tell me why it didn't get dark: "The citydoes not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God givesit light, and the Lamb is its lamp." ~ Todd Burpo
"I'd once heard a spiritual "riddle" that went like this: "What's the only thingin heaven that's the same as it was on earth?"The answer: the wounds in Jesus' hands and feet." ~ Todd Burpo
