What Would People Write On Your Tombstone?


With it being October 31st, it's a tombstone kinda' day.  It got me thinking about what has been written on people's tombstones.  Here are a few interesting ones.

What will people write on your tombstone one day?  That is determined by what we do in the dash between our birth and death.  Let's make every day count and give our lives to what really matters.  There are no moving trucks in a funeral procession.  In the end, it's about our relationship with Jesus, our family and those God has uses us to impact and help.
