I shared a couple of months ago that recently, nearly every time I am around the four year old she begins to ask questions about some character in the Bible. Some of those conversations have been really long especially for a four year old. That gave me an idea…
Why not record a series of videos in which I tell the current and theoretical future grandchildren stories from the Bible? So in my journal I began to list what those could be… That list gets long fast. Today I came to the conclusion that it would probably be just as effective to start in Genesis and start telling the story. One or two a day… It will take a long time. I may not finish. If I don’t start, that’s a given.
Someone telling you that you have cancer can probably have a number of impacts. For me, it was focus. I was not going to change the trajectory of what I was doing, I know that I am doing what the Lord wants me to do. But, with regard to my grandkids, what can I leave them that will draw them into what I passionately love, the Word.
It would have to be the videos. So I will start… The implicit message here is do not wait for a cancer diagnosis to get focused. Build your legacy for your grandkids now.
