is this possible?

"You make known to me the path of life; You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand." Psalm 16:11

Every time when passing a particular street sign, i've had to chuckle. Why would anyone name a street, Jolly Cemetery?  Of all the oxymorons, this one surely ranks high in the strange category.
Wouldn't you agree a routine visit to a cemetery is normally far from jolly?  It is usually accompanied by silence, tears, hurt, fear and maybe anger. But this sign has caused me to reconsider. Maybe i've been looking at it from the wrong side. It's not what happens on the way to the cemetery, but what happens after it. 

Father, how are things looking up in heaven?  With no more pain, no more sadness, no more loneliness, no more tears, i'm thinking life Above is jolly for all there. Singing, dancing and praising You all the day long... what could possibly be sweeter? The best is yet to come.  Thank You!

Jolly Cemetery... i am liking the name of this street more and more.

we are loved and chosen by God,
may be live like we believe it!
