Your Legacy

What a great day in America.  I’m always amazed on Inauguration Day, the day a President is sworn into office.  It’s a beautiful celebration of freedom, and democracy in action.  (plus the fashion is fun to watch too).

Politics (and fashion) aside,  It’s pretty amazing that this is happening on a day we are also honoring Martin Luther King, Jr and his efforts in the civil rights movement.

I don't know if this is possible, but we can when we are in heaven be able to look down at what's going on down here on earth. If it's possible, I can imagine he'd be really proud of how far we've come.  

I don't know about you, but events like this make me think about my legacy, the kind of impact I want to have on people.  

You don't have to be in politics to make a difference.  I heard this 10 year old girl,Natasha Leininger ,speak over the weekend… who is fighting herself for freedom for kids in Uganda.  She raised $25,000 to build a home for orphans and widows.  Why?

Because she said, "God didn’t save us to be safe..." 

Wow, makes you think about what ways you can be a little more "dangerous" for God...

Clear Your Mind

It’s hard to clear your mind.  

I recently saw this thing that said the average human has 10-15 recurring thoughts a day.  For example, "pick up milk at the store", "want to ask that person this question", or "need to pay that bill."

These thoughts plague us, fill up our brain, and we don’t think about the bigger picture. 

The fix:  When thouse recourring mundane thoughts happen, write them down, do something about it, and stop dwelling.

I'm trying that, the problem is I keep loosing my list...
