Leaving a legacy is such a precious gift to those left behind... generations after you will be inspired because truth is truth regardless of time.
Journal your life!
Simple, deep, serious, fun ... just write!
I am a committed journal keeper and I will put pen to paper as long as I have breath. I want others to see God's dealings with me so they might be encouraged in His dealings with them.
And I want my children to know the heart of their mother. My joys, my struggles, my weaknesses, my successes and my fears. They will each have to walk their own way, even before they leave my home, and I want my life to be a source of encouragement and a source of wisdom for them as they seek the life God has purposed for them. Should the Lord take me home long before they are mature adults, I pray He will use my thoughts, words and emotions to show them that the Christian life is more than going to church and saying the right thing. It is a daily choice to love God. It is a daily choice to be obedient. To love others. To be faithful. To be patient. It is a choice to love God ... and it is a choice to surrender self.
I want them to see this lived out in the life of someone they love and respect. I want them to see it in mine.
May all those who come behind us find us faithful ~ because they have seen the imprint of the Lord's hand on our lives as we tell our story.
