Send the Flower TODAY!
Attending a funeral service always has an affect on me. I've been to many different types. For some I've known well, others I never knew until I saw them in the casket. Some lived their lives well, others wasted their borrowed time on self. For those whose eternity was secure in Christ, their "home-going" was joyful. Others, their eternal resting place is in question.
Today's funeral for Rev., Dr., Marguerite Handy was no different. We celebrated her life and her ministry for Jesus Christ her Savior and Lord. But the words of her son mirrored the words my mother has spoken many times... "Don't buy me flower once I'm dead,... buy them for me now, while I'm alive and able to enjoy."
It was as good wake-up call for me to take care of the "business" of LOVING today!!! Not one of us is guaranteed tomorrow. Therefore, tell your kids you love them TODAY... make amends TODAY... hug your wife TODAY... AND most of all... send the flowers today!!!
