Let me preface this blog post by saying that I have a tremendous fear of God and I don’t take matters to do with heaven and hell lightly. That said, I do believe there is a place for humour in life, even when it comes to spiritual matters. With this is mind, I’d like to present you with a story I came across recently. I hope it brings a smile to your face 🙂
A gentleman, walking through a London cemetery, came across the following epitaph inscribed upon a tombstone. It read: “Stranger pause as you pass by, as you are now so once was I. As I am now so will you be, prepare your way to follow me.”
Moved by the refrain, the man penned a response and attached his words to the tombstone. They read: “As I am now so once were you, as you are now, so will I be too. But to follow you, I’m not content, until I know which way you went!”
And with that I will wish a belated Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends, and to all my readers – enjoy the rest of the weekend!
Peace and blessings,
