The Best Is Yet to Come!

A family at church was planning the funeral of their grandmother. They shared the story with the pastor that when they were kids, the large family would gather at Granny's for Sunday dinner. Granny had just enough silverware for the number of relatives, and she would remind them: "Clear your dinner plates, but hold onto those forks!"

Before she served them a slice of her homemade cake, she would have them hold up their fork and say, "The best is yet to come!"

In his remarks at the funeral, the Pastor paid tribute to life filled with love, and reminded them, "The best is yet to come!"
