Heaven is for Real: Friday 56


Heaven is for Real: A Little Boys Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back


 Page 56

"Not long after Colton became a pint-size collection agent, he got into a little bit of trouble. Nothing huge, just an incident at a friend's house where he got into a tug-of-war over some toys. That evening, I called him to the kitchen table. I was sitting in a straight-back chair, and he climbed up in the chair beside me and knelt in it. Colton leaned on his elbows and regarded me with sky blue eyes that seemed a little bit sheepish.

If you have a preschooler, you know it can sometimes be hard to look past their cuteness and be serious about discipline. But I managed to put a serious look on my face. "Colton," I began, "do you know why you're in trouble?"

-- Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo and Lynn Vincent
