I could just keep this one word for 2015.
I will, in my heart and mind, but I am ready for a new word and my new word is:
It was the #northstar that led the slaves away from their plantations as they followed the drinking gourd on their way past the Mason-Dixon Line and for many up to Canada to find freedom.
It was the #northstar that helped those who would sail the seven seas find their way in the night. It was a stable ever fixed point in the sky.
Stars are meant to be the lampposts of the sky guiding and leading us. Indeed, it was an unusual star that lead the Three Kings who many believe to be astronomers to find the Town of David where Baby Jesus was born.
Here in my quaint little country town, the big city lights are so far away. The twinkling stars as they seem flicker due to the atmospheric pressures never really twinkle. They are always shining. Always bright. Always leading.
Polaris. North Star.
My one true purpose is to Love God, Love People and Serve the World and to love people and use things, not love things and use people. I can do this with my family, with my profession, with my responsibilities. This is all that matters. This is part of being a legacy leaver.
- Important chances
- Big dreams
(I know that #bebrave and #northstar are really two words...but not when I use a #!)
