When you get to the end of your life you want to be able to look back and say, “I did what I loved to do, I did it well, I loved and served others, I represented God well.”
Thought about that when I saw this special about Andy Rooney last night. He passed away at 92, over the weekend.
He was kind of beloved curmudgeon, a commentator that had the last word on 60 minutes.
But, what got me was when he was asked, “If you had to live your life over again what would you do?”
He said, "I'd be on television, I’d get on 60 Minutes if I could and I'd do a piece every week of my own. I'd write it and I'd say it. And that's what I like to do best."
Wonder what you would say if you got asked that question. I hope I would have the same kind of answer. I wouldn’t change anything. Yes, there have been mistakes, things that I wish wouldn’t have happened, but I’m doing what I like to do best.
When my marriage had ended, and I thought my life had ended, I had a friend say to me, you know Amanda, you only get one trip around the block in this life, make it count. You might trip on a few cracks along the way, but you gotta keep going. Do what you love to do best and if in the process you can know God, and make Him known. That's a powerful legacy, and you don't even have to be on 60 minutes to make that happen.
Tell me what you like to do best and how you serve God by doing it!
