We went back to the grave this afternoon.

There was something rather wonderful about Bandon Hill in the sunshine, with the birds singing.

As one walks around a cemetery there’s a curious satisfaction from finding well tended graves.

I saw people making an effort to keep things ship shape, and there were any number of fresh flowers.

There’s a benefit to keeping land free for new homes when land is in short supply, but incinerating a loved one would leave me feeling short changed.

Scattering ashes seems to be a pretty big deal, but do you really get the ashes of your loved one?

What I noticed today was that many tombstones had been cast aside, as new family members were being laid to rest in the family graves.

I can’t say I noticed this previously, but it got me thinking.  The grave stones will be falling like nine pins when Jesus comes again!

And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died.

We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. So encourage each other with these words.

1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18 NLT
