Saying Goodbye: Share Your Last Words
Have you ever received the last words of a loved one? Share your story of saying goodbye.
"Tell all - I see them on the other side," one of the West Virginia miners who died earlier this week scrawled on a goodbye note. "It wasn't bad, I just went to sleep."
At the bottom, the note continues, "I love you."
It was a painful reminder of the miners' suffering, as well as a form of consolation for their families and the millions of people who watched their ordeal.
Many people never get to say goodbye before they die, but many others are able to offer last words to their family and friends. Have you ever received words of farewell from a dying loved one? What words do you think you would say if you were close to death?
I WILL LOVE YOU, O LORD, MY STRENGTH. THE LORD
IS MY ROCK AND MY FORTRESS AND MY DELIVERER;
MY GOD, MY STRENGTH, IN WHOM I TRUST; MY SHIELD
AND THE HORN OF MY SALVATION, MY STRONGHOLD.
( PSALM 18:1-2 *NKJV )
God is always with us through thick or thin because none
of life's problems are to powerful for Him. So when I received the
following message this week from one of our subscribers, I had
to pass it along. I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I do.
It is called.......
The Holy Alphabet
A lthough things are not perfect
B ecause of trial or pain
C ontinue in thanksgiving
D o not begin to blame
E ven when the times are hard
F ierce winds are bound to blow
G od is forever able
H old on to what you know
I magine life without His love
J oy would cease to be
K eep thanking Him for all the things
L ove imparts to thee
M ove out of "Camp Complaining"
N o weapon that is known
O n earth can yield the power
P raise can do alone
Q uit looking at the future
R edeem the time at hand
S tart every day with worship
T o "thank" is a command
U ntil we see Him coming
V ictorious in the sky
W e'll run the race with gratitude
X alting God most high
Y es, there'll be good times and yes some
will be bad, but...
Z ion waits in glory...where none are ever sad!
So when life throws you a curve, remember Charles, that
the shortest distance between a problem and a solution, is the
distance between your knees and the floor. After all the one who
kneels to the Lord can stand up to anything! Amen.
With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
