I am currently reading a very interesting book. One particular passage speaks of how what we see in existance begins in the minds of those who desire their creation. A building is constructed only after the dream of the architect is realized on paper. The marriage covenant is pronounced only after love and commitment have grown in the hearts of the two being wed. We have a promise from God. It is already in existance in His mind. When our earthly bodies become worn or damaged beyond repair, we will be given a heavenly body, one that God desires to create for us, realized the moment we are transported from our current realm into the everlasting presence of our Heavenly Father.
