Heaven Is Not A Place To Find But A Choice We Make

Hey everyone, How are you? Today’s post will be a bit short as I just want to share with you a bit of what happened to me yesterday (Sunday). It’s nothing special but I hope you’ll realize something after reading this short post. 🙂 Also, I’ll be advertising a few things here so I hope you’ll check them out sometime.

As a kid, I always thought that heaven is a place that only comes after dying. It is a place where there is no more sadness and where eternal joy and happiness is experienced. Later did I realize, heaven can actually be experienced here on earth.. and here’s one reason why.

Up until yesterday morning, I thought that I wasted one leave credit from work as I never really had plans for that day. I just said, i’ll attend church, then will head back to bed and sleep.

However, God had other plans for me that day. I suddenly had an unplanned food trip with some of my friends which eventually lead to a short road trip session and a few hours of swimming..

                                      Barney’s Burger Maginhawa

We first went to Maginhawa to check on a foodcart at 6th foodpark called Bratz Grilled Burger. I really love the burger they sell and to be honest, that’s my inspiration why I want to put up a burger restaurant in the future. However, since it’s quite early when we arrived, It was still close and as a result, we ended up  eating at Barney’s Burger at Teachers Village

After this, we had a short road trip session, and ended up at UP Diliman where we had shake. I really enjoyed the scene here. It was full of trees, green grass and looks really peaceful.

This was followed by a short swimming session at one of my friend’s place in Pasig. It’s good that they allow condo owners to invite guest and enjoy the village’s open swimming pool.  But above all these, what’s best about yesterday is we that got time to share some updates about our lives and spend quality time together. it’s just amazing how God allows you to enjoy life and spend time with people who build you up.

With that day’s experience, I believe that’s already like experiencing heaven here on earth. It may not be eternal happiness yet, but these memories will last a lifetime and remembering them can actually bring me joy.

P.S. Sometimes, you just need to enjoy life even if you don’t feel like it.. because part of God’s will for us is to live life at its fullest.

  • The photo of your burger looks I’m already in heaven. It looks so tasty and delicious. I must visit this Barney’s Burger in the near future.

  • Heaven happens when we allow ourselves to just live in the moment and enjoy life. We should really just appreciate even the little blessings as it can really make a world of difference.

    We have different views about heaven, but one thing’s for sure, it is something no one can fabricate– that feeling of fulfillment and content.
