Fulfilling Your Legacy

Legacy; anything handed down from the past,as from an ancestor or predecessor.

Legacy has been a very important word to me lately. Through all that my family and I have been through legacy is something that I can't get away from. My dad has left this incredible legacy for me. I was never really open to it or thought about before he passed away. I didn't really want to become a minister or even be in the ministry. I always thought to myself, "Oh, that's not for me. I want to do something more..something different." Now, I'm open to new things, to this amazing legacy. Writing, preaching, and reaching the world. I know for a fact that I will not walk away from this legacy. I will fulfill it and I will make my daddy proud. Not only the legacy my dad has left for but the legacy God has planned for me. I am going the fulfill the legacys my father's have left for me. Do you have a legacy? What is it? And are you going to fulfill it?

Spring Break!

I am so happy spring break is here! Tomorrow I will be laying on the beach with friends. I remember spring break last year. Me and my family packed up to go to the beach. We brought lawn chairs, blankets, and everything you bring to the beach. My dad brought a book. He sat slouching in the chair reading his book. Being us girls we wanted to stay all day. We didn't realize how fried we were getting and neither did my dad. By the end  of the day he got up and noticed that he had stripes across his stomach. White, red, white, red. Talk about an embarrassing tan. So while I'm laying on the beach I will also being thinking of my dad and his stripes. A tip, never sit slouched at the beach. You will have tan lines where your creases are. Happy spring everyone!!

The Itch 

For awhile now I have had this itch to write. This urge to blog. Something that I have been wanting to do but put it off. I'm finally doing it. I feel great about it and I have great motivation. My father wrote and he blogged. He was incredible at both. He was very talented and he wrote how he felt. If he had a thought he would write it down, if he needed to vent he wrote it down, and if God gave him a word that he could not forget he wrote it down. I want to be that way. I want to inspire people with my words and with my blog. My blog will be simply that..mine. It's a place where I can write about how I feel and what went on in my day. Almost like an online journal.

 I remember a time where my dad had taken a break from blogging and writing. Everyone begged him to start writing again. The next thing I know his is writing a book. A book that many people love. His goal was not to make money or to sell many copies but to minister to people all over the world. His writing inspired many and touched their hearts. He had an itch to write. My mother would get aggervated because that is all he would do. It paid off. He had many talents and writing surely was one of them. I want to have this talent. I want to inspire and touch the hearts of many people all over the world. I want to keep his legacy. My dad passed on the itch and I will so gladly keep it.
