    Unhappy tears in heaven?

    a theoretical thought that I'm just trying to understand in anticipation for what heaven will be like.
    ?what if when I get to heaven, I don't see one of my children there? will I be sad?

    I don't think we will even notice if one of our loved ones are not there. When we enter the presence of God all our attention will be on Him and we won't even be concerned about anything else. I can't recall the passages right off the top of my head, but I know in Revelation there is a passage that says something of, we will rejoice at seeing the column of smoke rising along side the alter because it shows how just God is.

    Have you laid your burdens down?

    I was off a little, but found the passages.

    Revelation 14:9-12 And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, (10) he also will drink the wine of God's wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. (11) And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name." (12) Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.

    This shows the just judgment of God and the call for the believers to endure to the end.

    Revelation 21:1-8 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. (2) And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. (3) And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. (4) He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away." (5) And he who was seated on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." Also he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true." (6) And he said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. (7) The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son. (8) But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death."

    This shows that when God makes all things new we will have no more tears or suffering. We will be in paradise with God. If God promises no more tears or suffering then we will not care about whether our loved ones are there or not.

    Someone's been listening to too much Eric Clapton.
