Word for Today:  December  9

There is something better on the way.

A woman diagnosed with a terminal illness called on her pastor to plan her funeral.  She had some ideas about what she hoped would happen, but she was insistent about one thing:  “I want to be buried with a fork in my hand.”

Her incredulous pastor demanded an explanation.  “Oh, it’s quite simple,” the woman said.  “In all my years of attending church socials and potlucks, I always remember that, when they clear the dishes, someone will say, ‘keep your fork.’  It’s my favorite part, because I know something better is coming.  So I want people to see me there in that coffin with a fork in my hand and know her best is yet to come.”

Present suffering, pain, heartache, rejection is NOTHING compared with the “glory which shall be revealed in us…”

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. Rom. 8:18

Keep your fork
