TITLE: Words swallowed up by Death

You can learn a lot in death. It might be a step towards living a life thats really positive. Probably a devoltional
Words are swallowed up in death and are no more. It seems so final taking Dad’s name off the computer and realizing that small connection in the universe is no more. I can send no messages unless I send them into oblivion of an electronic waste land

Death is like that wasteland. Nothing gets in or out. It hovers and goes nowhere. Messages are only for the living. He had so many things seemingly so well planned out. Death was not one of those things. I am sure what he would say would say is something like this. “Say those words now. You may never get another chance. Say it with a message as clear and specific and direct as you can. Do it right now with the words, gifts and that touch at the deepest places.”

I think my Father would say, he was never like that. There were issues of his generation and his Father’s generation. What do the biases of a generation mean in the face of eternity? Eternity wins in silence that can be total with no messages to be heard. The beginning of the Gospel of John says “In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and was God”. The word is the revelation of Love in the world. It is predominantly how God is known by men in this world.

I think to know the right word at the right time can indeed be like God in the world today. Why not now? The alternative is endless silence and death. Who in the end wants that? I think, in the end, the word is all we have.
