Well it has been a long time since I last posted anything. The last six or seven months have been crazy for our family. Now that everything is semi normal, I thought I would share some thoughts with you.
My grandpa passed away at the beginning of October. He lived a very long fulfilling life. At his funeral, I heard a story about him. He worked as an off shore oil rigger. He would car pool with other guys. At the end of their shift, all the guys would go to a bar and get drinks and you know that kind of stuff. My grandpa would stay in the car since he did not drink, he was a Christian, so he just sat there and waited for the guys. At grandpa funeral, one of the men who worked with him told my family this story.
It made me start thinking about my life... .... we have a legacy that we will carry with us long after we are gone from this world. The way we live our life, what we tell people, how we treat others, all these are the image of what we will leave behind. What will people say about me, will they say that I am a loving, caring person. Do I help others? Am I selfish; I pray not. Do I show gentleness, kindness to strangers? I have asked myself, what kind of legacy will I leave behind?
I have started praying that in everything that I do,every life that I touch, that I will leave a impression of Christ. After all, is not what a Christian should be doing, showing Christ!
I don't know, but this is some food for thought... something to chew on for awhile. .... What kind of legacy am I leaving with the ones my life touches?
