A preacher once overheard a conversation between an older and younger brother talking about the death of their grandmother.
The younger brother asked the older brother, How did Grandma get to heaven?
The older brother, himself still very young explained it this way:
Well Grandma put her hands up as high as she could while standing on her tip toes. Then God in heaven saw her reaching up and he put his hands down, down, down until his hands touched her hands. Then he puts his arms around her and slowly lifted her to heaven.
I couldn't have said it better myself.
