The Fossils, August 6, 2012 Daily Reflection

Fossils we found

As the children ran across the rocks at the Falls of the Ohio they would yell out when they found a fossil. “Over here guys, I found another one. Look guys, look!” All the children would gather and stare at the fossil trying to figure out what type of creature had left behind their imprint on this particular rock.

One day we will transcend this earth hopefully to heaven. What imprint will we leave upon this earth? What dent will our existence place upon this world? What have we accomplished, changed or shifted in our lifetime that will be noticeable when we leave it all behind?

I want to change the world just a bit. I want to shift thoughts towards God. I want to move people closer to God. I want for my children to know God, to have a deep faith and share their gifts with others. I want to leave this world a little better than I found it.

What do you want to do before you leave this earth? What mark do you want to leave behind?
