We beseech thee to hear us, good Lord.
Over the years I've put down some of the things that I want to happen at my funeral service. I'm not being morose, I'm just planning ahead. Yes, I have the usual favorite psalm verses and I'm still thinking about music, but what I want most is celebration. I wonder at my selfishness in my planning. It's always hardest on those left behind. So, I've allowed for 60 seconds of tears. I've also included a moment of required laughter in my service. I want joy! After all, I will be going HOME! Home to the Great Banquet. Home, at last, to my Beloved and all those who have gone before me. It's gonna be a grand ol' time! Let's face it, the journey from life to death will have been long and hard, but it is only termporal. Hopefully, I will have lived a good life, a peaceful life, a Christ centered life. And when I go home, I will have life eternal!
