Mr. Smarty Pants on Little h for Heaven and a Big God

Dear Mr. Smarty Pants,
Why is "heaven" never capitalized in the Bible?

S.P. Only at the beginning of a sentence. Cities are, but not heaven. Maybe it has no boundaries? Or maybe because love, hope, and joy are not capitalized. Simple answer, no one knows.

How big is God, does he have a size?

S.P. Nahum says, His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of his feet. (Nahum 1:3, NIV). Solomon said, Behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee... (1 Kings 8:27(. Yet, in the form of a man, He began as a single cell in Mary's womb. It seems He can be any size he wants to be.

People laugh at Christians all over the world who point upwards to indicate where heaven is. They can't all be right can they?

S.P. To a fish in the sea, in which direction is the water? Some believe that heaven surrounds us.
