LEGACY OF LOVE IN LIFE

Malaysa Airlines plane on the runway - If I were dropped out of a plane into the ocean and told the nearest land was a thousand miles away, I'd still swim. And I'd despise the one who gave up.

A friend once told me of a caring and much-loved school nurse who
died. She was well known by the faculty and students, as she had been
there 35 years. When the principal an­nounced her death to the
children, many of them began to cry.

To help ease their grief, the school coun­selor had a group of
children draw a picture of what the nurse meant to them. One child
filled in her pa­per with red. "This is her heart," she ex­plained.
"It's too big for the paper."

At her funeral her friends and family clapped and celebrated her life.
She left behind a great legacy of love.

How will you be remembered? What leg­acy will you leave behind?

Toward the end of his life, Elton Trueblood made this observation: "At
the age of 93, I am well aware that I do not have many years to live.
Conse­quently, I try very hard to live my remaining years in such a
manner that I really make a difference in as many lives as pos­sible.
How do I want to be re­membered? Not pri­marily as a Christian
scholar, but rather as a lov­ing person. This can be the goal of every
individ­ual. If I can be re­membered as a truly loving per­son, I
shall be satis­fied."

After you are gone, people may forget most of what you have done. But
they will remem­ber whether you loved them.
