Does having Jesus in your heart hurt?

For some reason on the way home from Dance tonight, Alexandra asked if all of us would die. I told her yes. She then asked where we would go. So I told her if she had Jesus in her heart she would go to heaven. "I have him in my heart, but he hurts". I asked, laughing, why he hurts? "Because now he's in my tummy". I laughed out loud. She then asked where we would live in Heaven. I told her God was preparing a place for us. "Will we have a new house?" Yes I told her probably. "Is it done yet?" I told her It's not ready yet. "why not". I responded by telling her that we're not ready to go there yet. "I miss our new house mommy". "Who will live in our old house". I told her I didn't know. "I think some new friends will move into our old house Mommy". I smiled!

What it got me thinking though is that even though Jesus isn't in our tummy, it does hurt sometimes to have him in our heart since we live in a sinful world with lots of loss and hurt. It also made me think that I need to miss my new house more and long for the time when Jesus returns to take us away from this sinful, hurtful world!
