The Memorial Ahead

Memorial day is in large part a day of stories--stories of honor, courage, survival, victory. It's an opportunity to hear and share stories of the soldiers who served and sacrificed for our freedom; an opportunity to be inspired by those stories and to show our appreciation as we thankfully reflect.

As I considered all of that this year, I began to wonder about my own story. What will be said of me when I'm gone? How will friends and family remember me? Will my legacy be noteworthy? Will my contributions in this life be memorable?

Heavy questions, I know, but I invite you to ask them of yourself and see where it leads. May we find ourselves worthy of a noble memorial once we leave this Earth. May we find ourselves living a memorial-worthy life while we're here.

 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing. 1 Timothy 4:7
