Are you an organ donor?

The other day, I had to stop by the Revenue Office and get a new drivers license. I have not gotten a new license, since my sister has passed away. One of the first questions they asked me was if I still wanted to be an organ donor. In the past I have always said yes, with a smile, knowing that someday I might be able to help someone out if something were to ever happen to me. But this time it was different, after she asked me, I just stood there with a blank look on my face, not knowing what to say or do. The only thing I could think of was the horrible scar my sister had from being an organ donor, and how we couldn't burry her in her white princess gown because of it. How last minute we had to find something else to send her home in, and it wasn't quite as beautiful as the white gown. This really made me stop and think about being an organ donor. Should we all be organ donors and help someone in the future who might need it? What about in our everyday lives, are you an organ donor? Have a you gave your heart to Jesus? It's exciting to know that in our lives, we have the opportunity to be an organ donor twice! So, stop and and think about your life. Sometimes its worth having those ugly scars for God to forgive, so that we can "donate" our hearts back to him. = )
