Streets of Dark Gold

I don’t know if it’s too late, but I want to make a suggestion to the heavenly maintenance crew. Instead of streets of gold, can we have streets of chocolate? (It won’t melt; this is heaven, after all.) I was inspired by a recent Polish trucking accident, where twelve tons of liquid chocolate spilled over six lanes of highway. Responders grumbled about scraping cooling chocolate off of asphalt, but it wouldn’t be a problem in heaven. I’m sure you’d have plenty of volunteers to help lick it up. The point here is that we’ve barely scratched the surface of the cool things God has planned for us. This new, promised land God has for us is exactly how a world should work when a world…well…works. It’s safe, it’s harmonious, it’s free, it’s encouraging, it’s convenient, it’s holy, and, hopefully, it has chocolate.
