"… there is no such thing as nothing."

“Say ‘hello’ to Jesus for me.”

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Saturday, February 12, 2011

Several years ago a friend of mine was suffering from terminal cancer. He is now deceased.

At his request one afternoon, I visited with him and his wife and sang and played guitar for them.

I played several tunes, and even made up a song for him on the spot. In that song, I sang in part, “Say ‘hello’ to Jesus for me.” Later in conversation, I also made a point to ask him to “Say ‘hello’ to Jesus for me.”

They were both devout Christians, and very touched by my efforts.

I knew he wasn’t long for this Earth, and sure enough, not too long thereafter, he expired.

What I’d like to ask you, the reader, is this: Is there is any reason to believe that he has not done what I asked him to do for me, which was to “say ‘hello’ to Jesus for me”?

Oh, by the way – the alternate title of this entry is:

“The Communion of Saints.”
