They Have Gone To a Better Place Triteness?

There is a question that needs to be looked at in a closer manner? That question is the things that are said at the time of someone’s death. The question is are the things that are said at the time of someone’s death become trite? For some people with certain held beliefs they are not and should be respected. In respects, those comments have probably become trite. This is probably caused because people really don’t know what to say? Another factor that cannot be overlooked is that as a culture we never talk about death. Which is sort of odd when you think about it? Another thing that cannot be overlooked is comments like ” nobody is getting out of this alive”. Those comments have a tendency to make light of a very serious issue. Have these comments become trite? I think it’s something that needs to have a vibrate discussion over.

An Old Man His Church and Empty Pews

As I sat alone in church this morning I couldn’t help wonder why there are so many empty pews? Yet deep inside I knew the reason. The faces that I had grown to know and love had gone home to their eternal resting place.

Even though for years we knew this transition was going to take place that doesn’t make it any easier in which to deal with. The reality is that there are more on the way and one of them could be me!

It’s been over 20 years since I first took a step into this place. Sure there have been good times and bad but it’s still home and it will be until I take my final breath.
