Why more Americans are choosing Cremation

  FOR DECADES, THE AMERICAN WAY of death has been the same: embalmed bodies, engraved tombstones, graveside ceremonies and, finally, burials. Not so anymore. According to state-by-state data compiled by the Cremation Association of North America and the National Funeral Directors Association, Cremation is the new custom, accounting for almost 49% of all dispositions last year, vs 45% for burials-” a seismic shift” and growing.

  Although cremation’s  popularity has steadily grown for years the biggest reason for its newfound dominance in cost. Burials are complex affairs that requires a plot, a tombstone and a coffin which all told can cost thousands of dollars. Cremation’s, by contrast, are simple and cheap. They’re also seen as more flexible option for Americans, who are increasingly mobile and may live and die far from home-and their family plots.

   The growth of cremation’s is shaking up the $16 billion death industry and is one of the reasons the number of funeral homes has fallen almost 10% since 2005. The government is rasing the cost of living so much it even affects the way we deal with putting are loved ones to rest! It’s a shame the amount of greed in this world, to the point of millions of Americans that can afford to put there loved ones at peace! IMG_20161004_195119_737.JPG

I Spoke with God Last night

  Last night I spoke with God, and being the benevolent being that he is, he had some surprisingly keen insights he’d like me to pass on. GOD said he would like the word and notion “god” to be replaced with the word ” life.”

That it should be worshipped as wholeheartedly as he was. GOD went on to say all the idolization was beginning to make him a tad “big headed” and that worshipping existence would make him just as happy. GOD thought it would be a great idea for people to take an hour or (5) out of each Sunday to go somewhere new and appreciate anything at all. GOD mentioned that doing service or just being really nice would suffice as well.

The only commandments are:

1. Be a good person as best you can. All cases are relevant to the individual

2. Live as much life as you can

3. Pursue something you deem worthy of your time in your relatively short amount of life on earth

4. Love all

For God is the Father of all and we all shall follow his words in Honor and hold the way he has spoken to enter the Kingdom of heaven.
