Thought Provokers for Sunday, May 14, 2014

jesus the way

You can read the Gospel for this Sunday here.

The husband died a few years ago, and the wife died just now. They were happy to meet each other in heaven, and the husband was proud to give her the grand tour–and a grand tour it was, indeed. Heaven was more wonderful than either of them had imagined. They could hardly imagine living in such splendor for eternity–but that was the promise.

But then the wife turned to her husband with a disapproving look. “Just think!” she said. “We could have been here years ago if you hadn’t insisted on eating all that healthy food.”

Everyone knows they’re going to die,
but nobody believes it.
If we did, we would do things differently….

There’s a better approach.
To know you’re going to die,
and to be prepared for it at any time.

That’s better.
That way you can actually be more involved in your life
while you’re living.

Morrie Schwartz, in Tuesdays with Morrie

Life is a great surprise.
I do not see why death should not be an even greater one.

Vladimir Nabokov

Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others
cannot keep it from themselves.

James M. Barrie

I expect to pass through the world but once.
Any good therefore that I can do,
or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature,
let me do it now.
Let me not defer it or neglect it,
for I shall not pass this way again.

Stephen Grellet
