The grave-what is it?
It is the bath in which we put our clothes on
Death-what is it?
It is where we wash & clean for eternity
It is the waiting room where we robe ourselves
It’s the dressing room for immortality;
it is the place where we, like Esther,
bathe ourselves in spices, for our King
that we may be fit for the embrace of our Lord.
Death is the gate of life;
We will not fear to die.
