What will people say at your funeral?

Recently, at my work, a sweet older man passed away. I met him once, and talked to him at my desk. He was a servant. He was so giving that he even gave his tumor to research to help find a cure for what he had! He loved the Lord and served at this church in many areas for many years. Honestly, I regret that I did not know him better, or for longer.

I am making the DVD of his funeral.

His daughter spoke about her dad, and how amazing he was. He taught her everything she needed to know, changing her oil, hitting a softball, how to act in church, etc. It was a sweet tribute. I don't know how she made it through it.

I am thankful to be a Christian and believe that when we die, we go right to heaven. Paul said to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. So, that's why I think as soon as we pass away, we go there if we have God in our hearts.

I live my life by treating people the way I want to be treated. I get hurt anyway. I am too trusting, so I am told. I am working on trying to guard my heart better...but it's hard when I am just made the way I am. Ya know?

I want people to say that I touched their lives in a good way. I want to encourage and inspire people. I hope that they see God in and through me. That's my goal in life.

If someone thinks I'm too Godly... oh well. That's their problem. Not mine.

God has done too much in my life for me to give up on him.

Please pray for my work church, co-workers, and this man's family as they mourn his death. Think about your life... what would people say at your funeral? 

I took this awhile back. I wonder what heaven is like.
