As we make our way through this world, the thought of death is normally tucked away someplace way back in the dark recesses of our minds. Some of us go several years without having to confront the ugly beast and accept the cold hard truth - that death is all too real! Its a part of life - just another step in the process.

I (along with others) have had to look the creature in the face recently. It took a wonderful person from this world way too early. A person that was loved and admired by many. Needless to say, all the love and admiration in the world will not stop death from completing its mission!

This post has no real meaning. Its just something I needed to get off my chest. Oh I'm sure some 'wiseazz' will have something cold-hearted to say, but I still needed to post it.

As the deceased was lowered into the grave that day I contemplated my own mortality. Its not that I've never experienced the death of someone close to me before, because I have. I lost a parent at a realtively young age, lost brothers-in-arms, grandparents, and several other close realtives along the way, but none had such a profound impact on me - maybe it was because I was 'invincible' in my younger days and now I'm closer to the grave! Whatever the reason, its making me sit back and take inventory of my life. It has put a few things in prespective for me and made me more grateful for the things I have taken for granted...and for that, I thank you death!

For those of you on here slandering and ruining the reputations of others - you should stop to think, "what if death calls for me today?"

I agree as we get older and look In the newspaper and see the ages people are dieing, It does make you think. I lost my only child several years and I lost a good friend this pasted monday that I had talked with for about 2 hours that day at my business and he had also lost a child so we had something in common. But sorry to say about 6 or 7 hours later I got the call that he had passed. Things like that has to make you think, This could have been me. So I just ask for you when dealing with people , Think This Maybe The Last Time I see Them or The Last Time They See Me. Just A Thought I Had Tonight That I Wanted To Share With You. Thanks If You Read This.

I think when we are young that we all believe that we are owed a full life,but we also think we should be able to do as we please.This is not the case for anyone in this life.We have a a lot of luck throughout the course of our lives we think,but if you stop and think of all the misery you see in your life.All the loved ones passing,friends,relatives,etc. The fright of looking into a horrible accident of your child,failure of your life style due to economy or even being the product of someone else`s cruel nature.All these things point toward life believe it or not and we owe our Lord all the thanks for everyday we do live.All people get busy all day long and forget how short life really is for each of us.I remember growing up 42 years ago playing football,dating and all the other things that seemed so important.Going home and screaming to my mom as if she were my personal maid and not telling her thanks or I love you enough.I found out when my parents passed that life really did happen just the way they taught me.Funny how I remember them so well and they have been gone so long.I now have my own children ranging in age from 23 to 2 years old and often wonder if they will be alright when I am gone and if they ever put thought in the fact that I will be gone sooner or later?We should all stop sometime during the days of our busy lives,everyday of the week.We should take a serious tone of thought and talk to those nearest and dearest to us to find out there hopes and dreams for the future of there loved ones.Take time to remind them that all bad eventually heals or ends and try to help them help themselves so that they may in turn raise a better generation happy children.I miss everyone I ve ever known that died and hope I will again see them one day,but I would love to think that if we just take a few moments each day and drilled into these kids that life is too short to argue and fight over nonsense.I know I would feel a lot better then in resting while they struggle in their own lives.It is sad that we all have to die,but we should be glad for every person we have had the pleasure of touching in some way in our own lives.Because no matter how hard we try,no one will live forever.The reason is because forever will never happen.Even this old world will eventually die and leave no memories of anyone or anything of this world.So just remember that it is just a job,just school,just another boyfriend or girlfriend,etc. and time will heal everything.Remember the elders as they talk to you,give them respect and love.We will all soon face everything you see around you,because that my friend is life.If you are lucky enough to live it through til your end.God bless and everyone try to love one and another as if they were your own!!!

There are two things I do know about death. One is that there are more dead people then living people and the other is that death is the only thing that won't leave you.

i seen death up close and personal this week
it is sad and painful
but it is a part of the circle of life
we come into the world for a designated amount of time, what we do with that time determines our quality of life
you may be the poorest of the poor, but if u have two slices of bread and offer one to someone else you have a better quality of life than the richest man who hoards all his bread away just to make sure he has more than u

O death, where is they sting? O grave, where is thy victory?~1 Cor. 15:55

Since accepting Christ as my Saviour, death is no longer a source of dread or fear for me. Christ overcame it, and one day I will also. Death has been defeated and I have hope beyond the grave.

did u see this story on the news tonight, i am trying to find the link, about a man and wife who lived as a married couple 73 years, he was around 100 and she in her 90's and they shared a room in a nursing home
he died, and she died 4 hours later
this is what my husband and i were talking about earlier today
i beleive that people feed each others energy, both good and bad
and when someone u love, even a pet, dies, they take just a little of your energy and maybe even leave behind some of their own
i believe they kept each other alive all those years
time will show all

Life is too short to slander others and stir up strife. I wish that more people would open their eyes and realize that none of us are promised tomorrow.
