A story is told about a man who found out it was his time to go to Heaven.
He asked the Lord if he could bring just one thing. The Lord said, “No”. Finally after many requests the Lord said, “You can bring one thing.”
Happily, the man packed his suitcase full of gold.
When he arrived in Heaven the angels said, “Sorry you can’t bring that in here.”
He said, “The Lord said I could.”
“Okay,” they said. “By the way, what’s in there anyway?”
The man opened the bag, and they looked in. Then an angel said, “Oh. It’s pavement.”
