On this particular day, the teacher asked her class “Which part of the body goes to heaven first?”
One little girl raised her hand and said, “I think your mind goes to heaven first because you have to have a mind in order to believe in God.”
The teacher praised the little girl.
Then a little boy raised his hand and answered, “I think your heart goes to heaven first because God is all about love.”
“Very good,” said the teacher.
The teacher looked up and saw Little Johnnie’s hand up.
“Oh no,” she thought, “I’m not like this at all…..” She knew he’d persist until she called on him, so with great reluctance, she pointed to Little Johnnie and said, “Ok, Johnnie, which part of the body do you think goes to heaven first?”
Johnnie considered the question for another moment, and replied, “Your feet.”
“Why do you suppose people’s feet go to Heaven first?” she asked.
“Well, I was walking past my parents’ bedroom last night, and my mom had her feet way up in the air and she was yelling, ‘Oh God, I’m coming!'”
