I might have shared this poem with you before, but I wanted to point out this one particular stanza…sweet Heather, who was in the wreck with me in 2002, wrote this —

If today were your last day,

Would you witness without any slack?  

Could you say you lived your life to the fullest

And don’t have to look back?                        

God’s love will help you share

To all those around you who have pain and strife.             

What would you do if today were your last?                        

~ Heather Folden

I just had lunch with two awesome young people who are, as the writer of Hebrews said, “running with perseverance the race that is marked out for them. (Hebrews 12:1) As we were almost done and about to be on our way, this question came up: What do you want people to remember about you?

How about you? If today were your last day, how do you think people would remember you?

“The life we live today is the legacy we leave tomorrow.”
