Steve Irwin's Dead!

Wow... who would have thought that Steve Irwin would die at the hand (tail) of a STINGRAY?? When my wife heard the news that he was dead, we were sure that he'd had a crocodile accident (after all, he was the "Crocodile Hunter"). They're saying that Stingray deaths (or even injuries, for that matter) are extremely rare... but Irwin's chest had been punctured by the animal's "barb" (the stinger that is under its tail) right at the heart... so, he didn't stand much of a chance.

Ironically, the Bible refers to death as having a "sting". Death is no fun, for those of us who have lost loved ones. One day, for all who have put their trust in Christ alone for salvation, we will never again have to worry about the sting of death... "O death, where is your sting?" (1 Cor. 15:55).

I look forward to that day!
