I'll Meet You in the Morning
Ken D. Trivette
Genesis 23

{1} Late Saturday, early Sunday morning, August 30-31, 1997, the world was shocked when it was learned Princess Diana had been killed in a tragic car accident in Paris. The world mourned her death and an outpouring of grief was seen from all over the world. . . . In Genesis 23, we see the death of another "Princess" (Sarah means princess).

{3} Anymore it is till "debt-disappointment-difficulty do us part." In the case of Abraham and Sarah it was till "death do us part." They had their up's and down's, but it is obvious they had a strong marriage.
