Over the last few weeks I have had the feeling that I should travel to Reno, Nevada to visit some of my family. My hubby was gone so even though it was going to be several hours in a car with little children I decided I should take off and go. Usually I have a list a mile long of all the things my family could/should do on vacation, but this time I couldn’t seem to put anything together. I really just wanted to go and not be so anal about our trip.
The day after I got to Reno I went to visit my Grandma who I love dearly. She was feeling a little under the weather but was happy to have company and welcomed us in. Lately I have been interested in learning more about my ancestors. While we were visiting I asked my grandma about her parents and grandparents. She shared stories about them she showed me some quilts that her mother had sewn that were hanging on her walls. I was even able to borrow one of my great grandpa’s journals to look over for the week. After a while we decided to let her rest and planned to get together another day. After we left her health declined rapidly and within 2 hours an aunt of mine took her to the hospital. She was quickly moved to ICU and remains there today.
I believe faith without works is dead, so I have a few questions we can ask ourselves to help us evaluate what we want to be remembered for/as. Take a couple of minutes and write down your answers to the following questions.
1. What do you want to be remembered for? (Kindness, Cleanliness, Charity, Forgiveness, Love, Health/Fitness, and/or activities you do?)
2. What do you want your family and friends to say about you when you pass?
When done ask yourself:
1. Am I living my life the way I want to be remembered?
2. What changes can I do today that will lead my life the way I want it to go?
3. Can I commit to changing and how am I going to change? (Create a plan to change for the better)
