Legacy

These past few days I have been thinking about the legacy I may leave behind.
I was thinking of my grampa this week. On Friday, he was diagnosed with Cancer. Now, the end of the book has not been written, and he starts treatments in 10 days, but I have been thinking of his legacy. He has three children, three children-in-law, seventeen grandchildren (including spouses) and nine and a half great grandchildren.(yes, someone is pregnant) Do you know that all of them have made commitments to Christ. All of the children and grandchildren at one time or another have served in a ministry or a church. We have or have had several pastors, youth pastors, Sunday school teachers, singers, music leaders, etc in our family. My gramparents set the standard, and we have followed suit. That is some legacy.
What about me? Tonite I sat at a YCF banquet, and once again, I felt the nudging in my heart. I could do more, I could help, I could help teens and young adults. I try to do my best to make a difference in their young lives in my job and friendships, but could I do more? Could I do this full time, and what will it take for me to get there? I think I need to spend some time figuring this out. ....trying to figure out my legacy.
