A true report, but not the whole story

The queen of Sheba went to hear Solomon’s wisdom, and she said upon hearing him, 

“It was a true report which I heard in my own land about your words and your wisdom. However I did not believe the words until I came and saw with my own eyes; and indeed the half was not told me. Your wisdom and prosperity exceed the fame of which I heard” (1 Kings 10:6-7).

How could she know the fullness of God’s blessing upon Solomon without having been there to experience it? She acknowledged that she had heard the truth, but what she heard could not replace meeting Solomon and conversing with him. 

Will it be that way with heaven? When we arrive and meet God, will we say that we had heard a true report, but that the half was not even told us?
