Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book ‘Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back’ by Todd Burpo, Sonja Burpo, and Colton Burpo.

Today I pray, “Dear God, We are so curious. We are so curious about what happens after we die. I’ll refrain from posing the question poetically and allow You to deliver a poem. What can we expect following death?”

Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to this passage:

“‘Where are there lots of colors, Colton?’
‘In Heaven, Dad. That’s where all the rainbow colors are!'”

I love that Heaven remains a mystery with hints of its existence from those who have visited and live to tell about it. I love that I asked God to tell us about Heaven, and we received all the rainbow colors. That is enough for me. While here on earth, we are all the rainbow colors, as our spirits carry colors in our auras. Auras can be determined by cameras invented for the purpose of seeing the colors. Yet I like the mystery. I like the imagination of the color of one’s spirit. I like to see one’s aura in the content of their character.

When our spirits rise to Heaven, perhaps these colors will shine brightly, as they may. Perhaps the colors will bounce among light and combine, and interchange to fill infinity. It is a mystery. A colorful mystery. I await knowing — in loving being among all the rainbow colors on earth. Each and every spirit for each and every poetic purpose.
