TOP OF THE MANTLE

Hello from Barbara's Entourage

A Time To Die

This week, we've been bombarded by death in the media. First it was the death of the young woman from Florida, who had her feeding tube removed, and she starved to death. The other death was that of Pope John Paul II, who died, with a feeding tube inserted into his throat, after being seriously ill. The Pope had lived a long and useful life, having been Pope for over 20 years. Terri, the woman from Florida, was only 41 years of age, and had laid in a bed for 15 years, and death was decided for her.

All of us will encounter death some day, either with a relative or a friend. Death comes sometimes without notice. But, most of the time, death comes after a person has been sick, and isn't able to recover, or a person has reached the end of one's life span.

Death doesn't have to be a bad thing, if the person knows the Lord. It is appointed unto each of us a time to die, but if we know the Lord as our personal Saviour, then this is a time of rejoicing. We will be absent from this life, but present with the Lord. Those of us left behind will see that loved one or friend again, if we also know the Lord as our Savour.

Be sure that death will come one day. Hopefully, it will only come when the Lord is ready to call us home, and not because some wishes us to die. It might come early for some, but later for others. It may come from a tragic accident, or perhaps a sickness, or it might be after a long and happy life. When it comes, hopefully, everyone will be ready to meet their God. So, like the five wise virgins, keep those lamps trimmed and burning, (Matthew 25) and your eyes on Him.

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

SNIPPET FROM THE MANTLE
A word or two from ......

Faith News Network

Terri Schiavo passed away Thursday morning, March 31 just before 10:00 Eastern time. The death of the 41-year-old brain-damaged woman was not unexpected. Her doctors had predicted she would die within one to two weeks after her feeding tube was removed -- an act ordered by a Florida judge and carried out on March 18.

'THIS AND THAT' ...
Joy, Humor, and Faith on the net!

A Preacher was doing his "Children's Church" sermon where all the youngsters come down front and hear a story. The pastor was discussing the story of Jonah. He quoted the scriptures from Jonah, "...and the Lord spoke to the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land." When the Pastor finished the scripture quotation, he started trying to solicit input from the youngsters to help him complete his mini-sermon. He asked thoughtfully, "What does the fish vomiting Jonah out on dry land indicate to us today. One of the youngsters spoke with great enthusiasm for the entire congregation to hear, "It proves, even a fish can't stomach a bad preacher!"
