It’s Friday Afternoon. We are looking into what will be a busy weekend. While it’s exciting to be working with some wonderful people, I still have to take a deep breath and gear up for the fact that for us Saturday and Sunday will be a continuation of the work-week.
Perspective is a wonderful thing. Ann and I attended a funeral yesterday. It was out of town so we had the chance to talk for two hours each way in the car. Going down we just caught up with each other. As if we hadn’t had a moment together alone for weeks – even though we work together in the same small office every day!
The memorial service was was amazing. It was a beautiful tribute to a man that had a wonderful life, full of blessings. Not only did he enjoy all that was available to him, but he gave back to people in the most kind and generous ways imaginable. He was selfless, always appreciating his family and friends, and doing whatever he could to help others. The man was filled wit the Holy Spirit and lived through the word of God – but as is should be, in humble and unassuming ways, doing for others, never asking what was in it for him.
On the way home we reflected on the day, the service, and the people who helped us understand this special man. We should all be so lucky to live a life like this; then to leave this world and be memorialized with nothing but good memories and loving thoughts. It was truly a celebration of life and love. It was a reminder of what we are all here to do.
Perspective is a wonderful thing!
