Is there Joy in dying? Is there Joy in death?
There certainly is Joy in birth and obviously Joy in being born. Right?
In the past 30 days, I’ve been exposed to nearly one dozen deaths. And these deaths have involved people close to me, or people close to people I’m close to. Ya with me?
Just yesterday, a good friend told me how peaceful the death of her family member was.
It started with tragic news, and there was little time to accept and deal with the impending reality.
And yet in the end, she spoke of it being Peaceful. Joyful.
Perhaps, with a little (or a lot) planning, death will be something we don’t fear, but something we view as simply part of life. Not to be feared, but to be embraced.
Maybe then we can look forward to it. Joyfully.
