So-what better time for quiet reflection on life and some pretty hefty subjects such as dreams of the future, my greatest passion, and my death?? Yes, the question, "What do I want my epitaph to say" ultimately means I am thinking about my demise, doesn't it? How morbid- well, maybe the photo of my cute kids enjoying the summer fun with our local wildlife will lighten the subject a little.
I would like my epitaph to say something as follows: Terri was passionate for The Lord, and people, she cared about the oppressed, the hungry, and the hurting. She loved her kids and her husband passionately and was willing to fight on their behalf. She was a woman that cared about others and was outspoken. She took risks and when she was knocked down got back up. She never quit believing God for great things for her life and the ones she loved.
Okay- I wonder what others might say about me? It would probably be very different-but you know what? I think we all need to think big. We should strive for greater things, able to put our mistakes behind us and believe that God can change us, and make us into all He intended us to be. It is HIM, after all, that designed us and He will continue to perfect what He created-in His time! That is something I will continue to believe for all of us! What do you want your epitaph to say?
