People are wandering place to place, home to foreign land, mountain to river, to enjoy the sights while all along they are passing the most precious of all sights – the man.
He get's news that a friend of his past has passed away. His response is, "Wow, I had just thought of him the other day for the first time in a long time." He looks down in vain to manipulate others of his true feelings. Then, he leaves as if the news of his old friends’ death was another normal happening.
There was a man lying dead underneath a bridge in Abilene, TX on Tuesday afternoon, by a city mowing crew, near the Treadaway-South First Street interchange, according to Abilene Police. This is how we cherish the amazing creation of God?

Death is normal, ordinary, a moment of grieving and forgetting in today’s generation. Although death seems very normal, it is more spectacular because of the happenings that take place, but not many care. You do not hear anything in today’s news about the human in connection to God. Death is a happening of many that do not bring interest in today’s lost society.
Near death experiences are not announced to the public which would bring faith. Eyewitnesses of the “silver cord” seperation (below) - cementing the death of humans the bible speaks of in Ecclesiastes 12:6-7 are not heard.
"Remember him - before the silver cord is severed, or the golden bowl is broken; before the pitcher is shattered at the spring, or the wheel broken at the well, and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.”
“The silver cord has been described as being smooth, very long, very bright, like an elastic cable made of light, about an inch wide, sparkling like a tinsel on a Christmas tree, and attached to one of several possible locations on the physical body.” - http://www.near-death.com/experiences/research12.html
We must take a step back and notice life for what it is – amazing. Nature is incredible and space is indescribable, but neither one compare to each of us.
Is it not amazing that a body can be in perfect shape but spiritless and the body is pronounced dead? “If death is understood as irreversible damage to certain identity-critical areas of the brain, the irreversibility of such damage is put into question by every advance in the treatment of injury and disease of the brain, as well as by the brain’s mysterious ability to recover from conditions such as minimally conscious state after many years” – depressedmetabolism.com
If we only had knowledge about God’s love for us, by knowing more about who we and our brothers and sisters are, we might view life more precious. Click on the play symbol on the Louie Giglio video below.
May God bless the family of this man that was pronounced dead under a bridge.
