Just before Gandhi died these were his famous last words, "All about me is darkness; I am praying for light." D.L. Moody's last words were recorded too, "This is my triumph; this my coronation day! It is glorious!" They were both expressing their perspectives on life~ death and all of the time in between.
None of us like to think about it but our time here is really short. I always wanted to be special and do great big things for the Lord. But I am just an ordinary person who loves God and adores my family. So I am pretty sure my words will not be recorded anywhere as "famous last words."
When I was young I was quick to spout off at the mouth. As I have watched a few days pass by~ I have learned to bridle my tongue much better. (Still working on it!) But it is my heart's desire that not just my last words but all the words in between will be used to glorify God, to build up the man I love, to point my children and grandchildren to One who can make life as D.L. Moody said~ Glorious!
Life is glorious! God is good! One day Heaven awaits us on that final Coronation day.
So ~why not practice speaking words oozing with honey. It will make life much sweeter from birth to death and all the in between.
Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
We never know which words we speak will be our last words. I want mine to be sweet as honey just in case.
