Leaving a Legacy



What kind of legacy will you leave behind?

Some of us might not of had good role models when we were young.
Some of us might have only come to know God later in life.
Or maybe we knew him, but neglected to make positive choices.
We cannot give up trying to improve our legacies.
Regardless of our upbringing we can continue to improve our legacy
on the next generation, our grandchildren.

I'm grateful to my husband for the life he has striven to live.
  1. A life of integrity, publicly and privately.
  2. Making decisions with an eternal perspective.
  3. Leaving clear tracks for them to follow.
We have grandkids following us and my prayer
is that they can see us choosing grace,
walking the talk, avoiding cynicism,
and demonstrating a faith worth living.

We're leaving an imprint whether we like it or not.
What kind of footsteps are you leaving behind?

Wishing you all a wonderful day as you celebrate
Father's Day!

  3. Marg, what a wonderful summary as to living a Godly life. I so appreciated the values you listed. I hope you are having a wonderful Father's Day. . somehow us moms benefit by having the kids come in Dad/Grampa's honour.
    The picture is beautiful too.

  4. Very thoughtful, kind words - and so very true. Three of our four children were able to come over for dinner tonight to celebrate dad's day. I watched with pride and love as each one shared words of love and a favorite memory or two of their dad. It is interesting that their favorite memories were 'small' actions - taking my daughter fishing, helping my son learn how to ski or letting my son drive 'the' truck. It often is the little things that do make the difference. Any man can become a father, it takes a special man to be a dad. Thank you to all the dads of the world.

  5. What a wonderful post Marg. I so rarely get a chance to browse around these posts for a visit. This was wonderful today to stop on a coffee break and read a bit here.

    Thanks
