A few days before his death, Dr. F. B. Meyer wrote a very dear friend these words:
“I have just heard, to my great surprise, that I have but a few days to live. It may be that before this reaches you, I shall have entered the palace. Don’t trouble to write. We shall meet in the morning.”
Dr. Meyer was ready for the next life. He could face death confidently. What about you?
Plan to attend the Fourth Annual Celebration of Freedom concert at 9 am on Sunday morning, July 3 at the Reynolds Plantation Pointe Pavilion. Everyone in the Lake Oconee area, both inside and outside Reynolds Plantation, is invited to come. Wishing you much love and much light.
