I told a friend today, "What seems surreal to us may really be the most real." In other words, "Our earthly lives now are less real by far than our eternal lives will be then." Deep thoughts, I know.
This verse helps explain my statement, though I don't expect you to understand it fully, because neither do I:
“For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." 1 Corinthians 13:12 (KJV)
