Jack’s Winning Words 4/8/16
“The body is a sacred garment.” (Martha Graham) Casper the Ghost is a spirit with a sheet thrown over him to make him visible. In a way, our body is a sheet thrown over us. At death, the sheet is removed and the soul lives…as some believe. The Bible teaches that we (body and soul) are the creation of God…special…sacred. As the saying goes, “God don’t make junk!” So, it’s important, how we use this body of ours. ;-) Jack
FROM TARMART REV: I never noticed Casper's sheet with wrinkles, like mine of late . . . ====JACK: Casper is called the "friendly" ghost. Wrinkled, or not, you fit the bill.
FROM GUSTIE MARLYS: I loved Casper. I never thought of it that way—what a great way to think about it.====JACK: It would be interesting to have Helen Keller as the judge of a beauty contest. What is beauty?
FROM BLAZING OAKS: My garment has gotten a bit saggy, and has a cold...Martha being a graceful dancer, probably wore a beautiful "garment"! I think she lived to be 97, so she took good care of it! I like your thought of our bodies being sheets over our souls. It's a good visual of what happens at death! We certainly are fearfully and wonderfully made: our bodies are an astounding bit of work! All glory to God! We become so attached to this old "garment" that it is hard to think of giving it up!====JACK: If you think that the earthly sheet is wonderfully made, think what the heavenly one will be like...and through God's ingenuity we will be able to recognize each other in a way differently than we have done on earth. (That's my imagination at work.)====OAKS: I think we would miss having arms to hug those we recognize...I do hope we recognize our loved ones. Many who have "died" and been revived, seem to have the impression that one knows "everything" or is aware of the "whole picture" past, and future...through thought transference, it seems. It is all quite a mystery!====JACK: Do you remember the radio program, "I Love a Mystery?"
