The Art of “Ending Well” (And a new podcast episode!)

Oh, do I have a good laugh for you today…

What began as an embarrassing moment (one I, too, can laugh about now) launched me into a season of pondering the importance of “ending well”. I share some of my thoughts – and the embarrassing moment, of course – in this week’s Expect Something Beautiful podcast episode.

In the episode, I mention a booklet by Harry Bollback, called “Our Incredible Journey Home“. (You should be able to access the free flipbook by clicking on the link.) Bollback’s writing is laser-focused on Jesus, just as you’d expect it to be, coming from a 94-year-old man who served the Lord for many years. The booklet came across my desk the same week Harry Bollback began his life in Heaven with God.

Also, just this week, my beloved friends hosted an episode on Grounded offering “Hope for Death and Dying”. The topic and timing is entirely the Lord’s: a complete surprise to me. I sat long with this episode, savoring every moment. I hope you do, too. I’ve loved plenty of Grounded episodes, but this one is my all-time favorite so far.

“…it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain…”

Philippians 1:20-21
