Do you care enough?

Today I went to the funeral for my great-uncle Bob Flaherty. He's been sick for a while so everyone is happy that he is out of pain and on to better things. For that reason, the funeral was one of the best I've attended. It was very much a celebration of his life rather than a mourning of his death. His grandson John explained that he recently asked his grandpa for a final lesson, "What is it that you want me to know?" My uncle Bob answered in the form of a question, "Do you care enough?... In relation to your church service, your family, your career, your health, your relationships with people... Do you care enough to give your all?" It's something to think about.

THE GOSPEL HAS GIVEN ME THE INSIGHT TO THE FUTURE.THERE IS ONLY ONE DEATH I REALY FEAR AND THAT IS A SPRITUAL DEATH. BUT AS TO GOING ON THERE IS ONLY A SEPERATION OF EARTHLY TIME AND ETURNAL LIFE TO LOOK FORWARD TO.
ALL OUR LOVED ONES HAVE GRADUATED ON TO THAT WONDERFUL LIFE AND WILL BE THERE WHEN WE ON THIS SIDE GRADUATE. SURE WE MISS THEM IN OUR MINDS AND HARTS, SO THEY STILL LIVE IN SIDE US AND BECOME OUR GAUARDIAN ANGLES. THEY STILL GET ALL OUR LOVE AND PRAYERS.
TO ALL THE FAMILY OF UNCLE BOB I UNDERSTAND YOUR FEELINGS THAT ARE MIXED RIGHT NOW BUT SOON THEY WILL CLEAR AND PEACE WILL BE WITH YOU.
GOD BLESS
