Death, a peculiar & surreal thing

As it’s been 3 weeks now since my father passed away from colon cancer, I am reminded how interesting & peculiar & surreal death can be.  The thought of it is most of the time distant reality, until you come face-to-face with a dead body.  I’ve only been to 3 funerals in my life, my father’s being the 3rd. First you see someone, living, breathing, humanly alive.  Then the next thing, they lay dead before you.  Of all the funeral viewings I’ve attended, as I face the deceased body of a once-living human, it seems like a weird dream.  I don’t know why exactly but it just doesn’t seem real.  I mean, I see the body.  It feels cold.  I realize the body has been cleaned and prepped for burial.  On top of this particular death, my father was cremated, which is the first cremation I’ve witnessed.  Also, so interesting but oddly surreal.   There’s a reality that life is fragile.  That death is evident.  Seeing my father’s lifeless body in the coffin, looking as if in peace, I pondered upon the Lord and the reality of life and death.  It brings me to His mercy.  Eternity rests in the Hands of Almighty God, heaven or hell.  I find peace in His justice.  For His glory, I must commit & submit.  There is no time like the present to repent and believe.  Today is the day of salvation.  (2 Corinthians 6:2)
