photoPastor David’s dad, Mr. Charlie Hughes, went home to be with the Lord this morning. I first met Mr. Hughes in 1997, when I was 23 years old. I had just moved to Florida–and having arrived here without family–Mr. Hughes was one of the first to jump in and accept me like family.  I can write posts about dealing with life but death is not something I articulate, well. But I really want to take a minute to share what his life meant to me. This Friday at his memorial service there will be hundreds who will want to get up and say something blessed about this man. I think that says something: it is important to live right. But I think it also says something else: it is important to leave right. I have been to a funeral where there were not hundreds of people who could say blessed things about the departed. I don’t want to be that. I bet you don’t either.  I hope we consider our lives now, and when we will leave them.  Mr. Hughes would tell you the most important thing in his life was his relationship with Jesus, his personal Friend and Savior. Some of us have started our lives off without Jesus. Some of us are reading this and still don’t know Jesus.  But we are never too old to start new and it is never too late to start over. Today is the day to live right. So that you (also, someday) leave right. Just like Mr. Hughes.  Thank you, Mr. Hughes, for your life, the life you gave three children and the legacy you leave us.  Can’t wait to see you again. God bless.
