    • The Hard Truth Concerning When You Die (12:27)
      When you die, don’t worry about your body… Your relatives and the funeral home will take care of it.
      They will take you out of the house and deliver you to the funeral home of your family’s choice.
      They will take off your clothes.
      They will wash you.
      They will dress you up.
      They will even apply makeup to make you look presentable.
      Many will come to the funeral to honor you.
      Some will even cancel their plans and ask for a leave to attend your funeral.
      Your things–things you hate to be borrowed will be sold, donated or burned.
      Your keys, tools, books, CDs, DVDs, games and clothes will be thrown in the trash. The world won’t stop and cry for you.
      The economy will continue.
    • You will be replaced at work. Someone with the same or even better
      qualifications will take your place.
      People who only knew your face will say ‘rest in peace’
      Your good friends will cry for a few hours or several days, but then they will laugh again.
      Your pets will get use to their new owners.
      Your pictures will be hanging on the wall for a while, and then they will be placed on furniture and finally stored at the bottom of a box.
      All the things you once had will lose its meaning
      Someone else will sit on your couch….
      You will soon be forgotten by friends, co-workers, neighbors, classmates and even Church folks you saw every week. Your bank account will freeze, and rarely will someone visit your grave stone with flowers 
      But there is good news, there is life after death and you can live forgiven
      with a Holy God. So don’t get too personal with life on earth.
    • Make every moment that you live count, by making an impact for Jesus.
      Reach the lost, feed the homeless, and pray for the sick. Because in the end all that will matter is what you did with Jesus while you lived!!!
      I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and indeed, all is
      vanity and grasping for the wind. — Ecclesiastes 1:14
  • Melisa – My sister is getting married to a woman. Can we attend the party that they will have after the wedding?
  • Arthur C. Clarke on BBC’s Horizon in 1964, when he gave some astonishing predictions about the future. (37:35)
  • Martha – I did not attend my daughters same sex wedding. Thanks for encouraging Melisa to stay true the faith.
