Aloha 'Oe


No one likes graveclothes. No one discusses graveclothes. Have you ever spiced up dinner-table chat with the question, "What are you planning to wear in your casket?" Have you ever seen a store specializing in burial garments? (If there is one, I have an advertising slogan to suggest: "Clothes to die for.")

Most folks don't discuss graveclothes.

The apostle John, however, was an exception. Ask him, and he'll tell you how he came to see burial garments as a symbol of triumph. He didn't always see them that way. A tangible reminder of the death of his best friend, Jesus, they used to seem like a symbol of tragedy. But on the first Easter Sunday, God took clothing of death and made it a symbol of life.

(Max Lucado, He Chose the Nails)


You no longer need a phone; you have His voice.

You no longer need the media; you have His truth.

You no longer need a watch; you have Him beyond all time.

And He has you.

Aloha 'Oe, Kung Kung. Till we see you when we're home at last.

Nicely said. And cool advertising slogan too! "Clothes to die for."
