“The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.” ― Kalu Ndukwe Kalu

This will be the new change... I will probably only blog once a week, maybe twice if things are happening. I want to share more in less time.  I am helping a friend as she begins something she has dreamed about for years. Too soon to share the details, but her commitment to God and waiting till it was His timing and not hers, is amazing testimony in itself.  

I believe always in giving and sharing of the gifts God has created in you. As a teacher, I love watching students grow and learn and bloom with life.  My friend is only ten years younger than I am, but I am so excited about her upcoming journey and realizing how many lives she will touch with her plans. I am honored to be a part of her foundation as she lays it out carefully under prayer.

Made me take a deep breath and think about things from the 'other side' when I am gone. If I never left the safety of being safe at home, no one would really know me.  Almost sounds like a life wasted.  Being scared or afraid to take chances leaves you in the same place... frozen and not moving forward. Each of us has been given gifts to use and if we use those gifts we most certainly will be leaving a strong legacy of love behind us. 

I promise to update the journey with her as it unfolds.  Meanwhile on my front, we are "T Minus" 30 days and counting to be moved out of our house and of now, still not sure where we are going. I trust Lord, I trust in you.  You will reveal our path as we need to know it.

Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.   2 Peter 1:4 NIV
