My first funeral service today...what a unique blessing! There's so much to say here, but in my weariness and with the little time I have, I'll limit it to this...

Though I never imagined I would, I agree with the pastor who said, "I'd rather perform a funeral than a wedding any day." Why? Because people are so open at funerals...at weddings, nobody's really listening to the preacher anyway. Twelve people who had almost certainly never heard the Gospel before heard it today, and were offered an opportunity to respond. Truly Christ was exalted in our dear departed sister's body in death just as it was in life (Php 1:20). What an incredible experience!

More on death later, I'm sure...
