Today’s Gospel: Luke 5:27-32 (The Transfiguration)
Pondering these thoughts today: Let’s face it, everything we possess in this life will be either given or taken by someone else, or it will be sold or given away. Sad, is that day we leave this life, at least for those so attached to this place. Recently my beloved wife Chrissy passed away. Going through her things has been difficult and most eye opening indeed. Here I look at a woman who loved her Lord, me and our children and what has her life become? A pile of boxes of her things! No that is not how we will let her memory and legacy be remembered. She was not caught up in these things, we know that. She always put others first. She never was selfish about anything. Our children summarized their mom like this, “She was the most unselfish person I ever known, she was stronger than I could ever be and she was giving to everyone when anyone needed anything, she never complained even while suffering and she always put us kids and dad first.” That my friends, is not a pile of boxes filled with her things, that is the legacy she has passed on.
