What would you like written on your tombstone?
Maybe you’ve already given some thought as to what your epitaph should be. Perhaps you’d like a mention of your accomplishments or family ties.
You might even hope that something humorous be inscribed on your gravestone, as in the following examples:
“I told you I was sick.” (Written on the gravestone of William H. Hahn, Jr., of Princeton, New Jersey.)
“Here lies Lester Moore, Four slugs from a 44, No Les, No more.” (An actual epitaph in the Boothill Graveyard in Tombstone, Arizona.)
“There goes the neighborhood.” (Epitaph of self-deprecating comedian Rodney Dangerfield.)
“Here lies the body of Jonathan Blake. Stepped on the gas instead of the brake.” (On the tombstone of an accident victim in Unionville, Pennsylvania.)
“Here lies John Yeast. Pardon me for not rising.” (This cheeky epitaph is on a grave in Ruidoso, New Mexico.)
What was written on Christ’s tombstone? Any guesses?
Because He didn’t stay in the tomb for very long and isn’t there now.
Jesus was only a temporary resident in the dark chamber in which He lay.
Unlike John Yeast, Jesus did rise.Read more
