When I Die

No, I am not depressed. Not suicidal, not terminally ill.

I have always thought about death. Death is a part of living. At the end of living is death. And all Christians know that at death, living begins.  

As the new year begins, I am a little closer to Death's Door (All of us get closer each day) I will think about the songs to be chosen for my memorial service. Who shall be my pall-bearers. Only now, funerals are very well planned and they 'roll' the caskets. So pall-bearers are not needed.

 I absolutely insist that funeral directors do NOT use their makeup kit on me. I want my own. I do NOT want my arms crossed on top of my chest. Fingers laces with my white Bible is fine. So is Sylphide style. Not Taglioni style because I have short arms. I do not want my coffin to be lined with those el-cheapo satin. I want cotton. If I get buried in a T-shirt, that's fine too. I must insist on underwear. I don't care if nobody can see if I am wearing underwear or not. When I wake up on Judgement Day, I want to be wearing underwear.

I think I am a bit on the traditional side when it comes to song selections. I would like 'What A Friend We Have In Jesus'. Some contemporary ones are also accepted but NO Hillsongs. I suppose I should choose 'In The Garden' also because it's Andrew's favourite and he'll enjoy it.

I think I will opt for a cremation. It's a lot cheaper. I think those 'pay through your nose burial plots' are a total rip-off. Burn me and go up on a high place and scatter my ashes. I do NOT want to be scattered in the sea. The sea frightens me.

Lastly, I appoint David to make an entry to this blog, a final one, to inform all my friends far and near that I will meet them in Heaven one day.

When I die, I want to be cremated and then have my ashes scattered into the sea ...actually, any body of water will do (prob not a swimming pool though, just in case no one wants to swim there ever again!!) AND I want my funeral to be a happy occasion. I'm just changing addresses, nothing to it. ;)

Since TOD has been flooded recently and being flooded, it IS a body of water.......maybe you can ask to have your ashes scattered there.
