A rich man dies and go to heaven

There once was a rich man who was near death. He was very grieved, because he had worked so hard for his money and he wanted to be able to  take it with him to heaven. So he began to pray that he might be able to take some of his wealth with him.

An angle hears his pray and appears to him. " Sorry, but you can't take your wealth with you." The man implores the angle to speak to God to see if He might bend the rules. 

The man continues to pray that his wealth could follow him. The angle appears and informs the man that God has decided that he allows him to take one suitcase with him. Overjoyed, the man gathered his largest suitcase and fills it with pure gold bars and places it besides his bed.

Soon afterwards, the man dies and shows up at the Gates of Heaven to grate St. Peter. St. Peter seeing the suitcase says" You can't bring that in here."

But the man explains to St. Peter that he has permission and asks him to verify his story with the Lord. Sure enough, St. Peter checks and comes back saying." You're right. You're permitted to one suitcase. But I'm supposed to check its contents before letting it through."

St. Peter opens the suitcase to inspect the worldly items that the man found too precious to leave behind and exclaims," You brought the pavement?!!"

Man, gold is used as pavement in Heaven? Never underestimate the Heaven which created by Mighty God.

Don't grieve about things you couldn't achieve. Don't cry over things you can't able to accomplish. Because you will never know what God's arrange for each of us. Just look ahead, follow the nature's course, and hope for the best.
