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). We see her death as a husband mourned.

{2} When you look at Sarah's death, we see that she did not die tragically, but triumphantly. [NOTE VS.2] She died at Hebron in the land of Canaan. Hebron means "fellowship" and Canaan was the land of blessing. She died in fellowship with God and in His will.


{1} [VS.1] .... Sarah was 127 years old ... In those days girls married very young (16-17) thus it is possible that they had been married around 110 years. For over 100 years they had been husband/wife...for over 100 years they had lived together, learned together, laughed together, loved together.


{1} It has been said that 38% of all first marriages fail, 79% of those divorced will remarry and 44% of those second marriages will fail."

{2} I read about one woman that was married 4 times. First she married a millionaire, then an actor, then a minister, and finally an undertaker. A friend asked her why she married....."One for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, and four to go."

{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.

{4} Town and Country Magazine once made a study of the presidents of the 100 top corporations in America. They discovered that these successful corporate presidents had a divorce rate of only 5%. The study concluded that a strong marriage is a great contributor to a man's success.
