Various ancient sources, including passages in the Bible and other early Jewish writings, speak of multiple heavens. In the Divine Comedy, Dante is guided through nine heavens before arriving at the ultimate dwelling place of God. St. Paul at one point talks of being taken up to "the third heaven" (2 Corinthians 12:2). Other ancient sources hint of even more heavens--up to ten of them.
It is from this tendency to talk about multiple heavens that we have the expression "in seventh heaven," meaning a supremely happy state.
We are celebrating the seventh anniversary of Our Blog where we have been "looking at little life moments with a spiritual eye." It is hoped that over these seven years, you have found a post or two that thrilled you, delighted you, or put you into a supremely happy state. As we reach another milestone, we hope to continue to transport you over the moon into seventh heaven and beyond!
