In a few hours, I will officiate at a funeral of a lady from my church who passed away on Thanksgiving Day. She was a faithful follower of Jesus for over 50 years. I believe the words of the apostle Paul in Philippians 1.21 summed up her life:
For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain
May that be the prayer and the goal of our lives--24/7. Daily, we can long to please and honor the Lord Jesus.
Have a good day
