In the last few weeks I have been thinking a lot about one thing –Time. The scripture says ‘there is a time for every purpose under heaven,’ and I have been thinking about my life.
One of my life passions is to save the stories for the next generation. All of those stories that I know and have tucked in my head are so precious. But are they saved somewhere else besides my head?
My Mom will be 88 in May and her stories are gone. She still can remember a few (the coal in her Christmas stocking!!) but names and faces are no longer there.
Did I use my time wisely enough to record them before it was too late? My sister and I did get a lot of them, but I am sure there are many more that are now lost.
One of my goals for this year is to get my stories down for my children and grandchildren. The ones that no one knows but me.
So my question to you is who in your life has stories that needs to be saved. Now and not later. What stories do you need to write down today. Not someday.
Because somedays are never promised. Only today.
