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.
