This month began with several personal reminders of how short our lives are in the grand scheme of things. This life is a dot on our journey throughout eternity. But as a dot, this life is still important. To us. To God. To the people we love and who love us. And also to the people who don’t know us but whose lives we touch or whose lives are touched by something we do in the here and now.
Because of the reminders I’ve had recently, I’ve settled this week on some serious work toward life goals. Things to do before I die. That bucket list.
What memory will others have of my life, when I’m gone?
More importantly I’m taking some time to think how I can make my life memorable in a good way and to help make good memories for others—in the name of Jesus.
PRAYER: Thank you Jesus for each day on this earth you give us. Please help us make the most of each day. Help us create good memories for others and help us live lives that will result in good memories of us for the people who remain. Most importantly, remind us each moment to live with gratitude for who you are and all you do for us. Amen.
WHAT ABOUT YOU? Do you have a bucket list? What’s on it?
