A Good Death

"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints." Psalm 116:15 

My wife asked me one day as we were driving: "have you ever wondered how you are going to die?"

I tried to ignore her as the traffic was nasty, but as usual, once she gets something into her mind, she wants an answer. I tried to mumble something that would distract her, but you'd think after all these years that I'd know better.
When we came to a stop sign, she turned her beautiful face toward me and said, "Well have you?"

I stayed quiet as I knew from experience that she had something to say. I was right as she then said, "I think I want to die the way your Dad did." He was having breakfast in his backyard under his grapevines and just fell face first onto the table. Mom had gone inside to get him some coffee and was startled by a white dove banging into the window trying to get inside. She went outside looking for the dove and saw a dove with a broken wing fly away when she saw Dad was gone. 

That brings goosebumps every time I think about how Dad left this world.
Dad understood Psalm 23 from his heart that cool morning that he met his Shepherd face to face." 

Prayer "Help us, Father, to understand Psalm 23 from our hearts so we can have a blessed life and dwell in Your house forever." In Jesus' name, Amen."
