Doo-doo Diapers And Birthday Parties. Do Either Of These Happen In Heaven?

I love birthdays! Mine, my family’s, my friend’s, it doesn’t matter! Let’s all get together to eat cake and ice cream, blow out candles, sing songs, and open presents! Birthday parties are a celebration of life. If you’re having your birthday, it means that God has chosen to leave you here on this earth, and He has a purpose for you.

I’m forty three now, and I don’t make quite the deal of my birthday as I used to, but I still want to celebrate! I want cake, I want cards that say sweet and funny things, and I want to be with friends and family. Presents aren’t necessary anymore, although they are appreciated!

Today is our daughter, Averie’s, birthday, she’s turning twenty; but we won’t be eating cake and ice cream, blowing out candles, singing songs or opening presents with her. We’re not sad though! Even though we’ve missed having those experiences with her, we know that she’s safe in the arms of Jesus!

Do they celebrate birthdays in Heaven? I don’t know. I tend to think that Averie will not be a baby when I get to Heaven, so maybe people age? The bible says we’ll have glorified bodies, and I don’t believe there’s anything too glorious about a doo-doo diaper, so I don’t know.

I do know this. Averie doesn’t need presents, because she has Presence; the presence of God! Revelation 22:4-5 says,”They will see his face, and his name will be written on their foreheads. There will never be night again. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, because the Lord God will give them light. And they will rule as kings forever and ever.” How awesome is that?!

Nope, we’re not sad for our daughter! She is perpetually celebrating! However, it probably wouldn’t hurt to eat cake and ice cream in her honor, right? Bon appetit! And a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our daughter Averie Ryne Hawkins! 8/16/93-9/14/93

  1. I did not know this about your story. Thank you for sharing it. It helped calm me about my worst nightmare. I’ve had a miscarriage in my first trimester , It happened before my Oldest son David was born. At the time I was still very young and thought of the baby as an unformed mass of tissue. Ya know that’s just the way it was in the late 80’s Anyway one of my daily prayers and worst fears is loosing one of my children . Thank You for sharing.
