This is a press cutting from a local church magazine:
We were saddened to hear recently of the unexpected death of one of our most active members, Someone Else.
Someone Else’s passing creates a vacancy which will be difficult to fill. Whenever leadership was mentioned, this wonderful person was looked to for inspiration as well as results. ‘Someone Else’, we would say, ‘ Can work with that group.’
When there was a job to do, a meeting to attend or class to teach, we all knew that Someone Else would do it.
It was common knowledge that Someone Else was among the largest givers in the parish. Whenever there was a financial need, everyone assumed that Someone Else would make up the difference.
Someone Else was a wonderful person, often appearing to be superhuman, but one person can only do so much. Were the truth to be known, everybody expected too much of Someone Else. Now Someone Else is gone, who is going to do the things we were too willing to let Someone Else do?”
Do you allow ‘Someone Else’ to do the things which you could quite easily do?
It’s worth profound thought!
With many peaceful blessings
