Truly, Thursday is not the only day of the week that I think, though some may argue otherwise, but I like to wonder out loud sometimes, hoping for some insight from all of you thoughtful people.
This morning I read the question, 'What will be your legacy?' That is a good place to set a spell and think.
Legacy: my dictionary says it can be 1. money or property handed down in a will or 2. something handed down from an ancestor or predecessor or from the past.
So, what is it that I can hand down to my children, their children and their grandchildren? Maybe I should start with a eulogy and then go on to the reading of the will. All pretend, you understand. (Too much Michael Palin lately!)
When I begin to think of it I wonder if what I want to hand on or what I value is of any significance to later generations. What could I say or give that would be relevant in their lives?
What is it that I love most that may appeal to them?
- books and reading
- order and beauty around me
- good music
- love of a job well done
- activity whether it be running, walking, sports
- making friends/keeping friends
- but most of all, above all else, I want to tell the succeeding generations that God is love, He is there and He is not silent...
God's peace is joy resting; His joy is peace dancing.
So, tell me, what does a legacy mean to you? What do you think is most relevant to hand on to our children?
