a short obituary

"You shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”  Acts 1:8, NASB


If I were to die right now, my obituary would be short.  Sometimes this bothers me.  Like I'm not leaving a legacy for my children.  Like a list of accomplishments and involvement translates into such!    

This is my season to say no!   I serve on no committees.  I am not involved with any civic organizations.  I do not volunteer my time or resources to the community.  I do not teach Sunday School.  Nor do I hold any offices within my church. 

Instead - I serve my Lord.  My home, my family, is my calling, the organization that receives all my time and all my resources.  I teach my three littles who are five and two years old and eight months old.  And their every need and want is my office.

So, despite a potentially short obituary, a legacy IS being made.  I'm doing what God has called me to do, "I am a witness in my home, in La Grange, in Greene County, in North Carolina."  And God only knows what remote places of the earth these little hearts will go!
