As I was "house-cleaning" my computer I came across this writing that I had saved a long time ago. Reading it again, and remembered Sam, my brother-in-law who passed away 2 weeks ago. He was an organ donor. Because of his death, 63 people found life. He was a man of God --God first, his wife and family, and then others. He always had time for others in need. We will remember Sam. He will be missed. Even in his death, he was a blessing to others.
To Remember Me
Give my sight to the man who has never seen a sunrise, a baby’s face or love in the eyes of a woman.
Give my heart to a person whose own heart has caused nothing but endless days of pain.
Give my blood to a teenager who was pulled from the wreckage of his car, so that he might live to see his grandchildren play.
Give my kidneys to the one who depends on a machine to exist from week to week.
Give my bones, my every muscle, every fiber and nerve in my body and find a way to make a crippled child walk.
If you must bury something, let it be my faults, weaknesses, and prejudices against my fellowman.
Give my sins to the devil.
Give my soul to God.
If by chance, you wish to remember me, do it with a kind deed or word to someone who needs you.
If you do all I have asked, then I will live forever. (Robert N Test Gift of Hope)

You may be making matters worse by adding imaginary worries about tomorrow to the weight of real concern to live by faith in a holy and wise way today!
If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith? (Luke 12:28 NKJV)
If God takes care of the grass in the field, don’t you think he’ll take care of you?
Worry is a tormenting emotion that focuses on things that have not yet happened and may never happen. It robs us of time, energy, and even our health. It causes self-focus; even self-absorption. Jesus makes the opposite point. God cares enough about the grass of the field to clothe it with rich colors and flowers and at the end of the day it is thrown into the fire. How much more does he care for you; the very person he sent his son to die for? (R. Moore)
These thoughts were shared with me by Roy Coy. If God clothes the grass and the flowers, how is it that I think He wouldn't care for me. "Lord forgive my worries! When I'm tempted to worry, set my eyes on the grass to remind me how Great You are."
God bless you

preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
Eternal is the abundant life of God's people! Praise God forever! We
shall be preserved and we shall delight in glorifying God unto
everlasting! Hallelujah! Fear no rejection for you are His and all
things are bound together for your good. Trust in the incredible love
of the Lord and proceed in that same love to preach this gospel of
preservation to the ripened fields of the lost."
