A Hole to be Filled

Earlier today, on my way to a community action board meeting, I passed a cemetery with a freshly dug grave. There was no headstone, no awning or chairs awaiting mourners, no funeral home workers preparing for the grieving, just an empty hole. It almost seemed it was waiting for someone to volunteer to fill it.

I’ve thought about that pit many times this afternoon. As much as we try to avoid the subject the truth is there is an empty grave awaiting us all. It’s unavoidable. Death cannot be abated or sidestepped. Some where, along the road of life, is the end. The question most ask is; “When will it happen?” The better, wiser question is; “What will I do with the time remaining?”

Blessings,
