Legacy & Liberty

As I look back on the seasons of my life I realize my “PPNs” have often changed. Now in the fall season of my life journey ( at 66) Legacy and Liberty are my chosen personal primary needs. Last week I ended with the statement “Legacy is my choice , that when hope grows up, we choose the legacy we leave ”  I have been thinking more about that statement this week and how faith has played a part in my journey ..    Hebrews 11:1 says : Now faith is the Substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen . I really believe that verse, as it has played a huge part in my life journey, it has help me manage the fear of ‘things not seen’ and accomplish more and blessed with more than I ever thought possible and even perhaps I deserved  ! Now, let me say that fear never really disappeared during my journeys  however my faith continued to grow as I ventured further into the unknown and as Hope grew Up  I realized I was choosing the legacy I will leave, there are still many days and weeks left to paint the canvas of my legacy .. I still cannot see the final framed masterpiece however have faith in the substance of the paints on the canvas and am anxious to see what faith and hope create! Awww and my reward will be and is Liberty,  As Legacy is tied to faith and hope so is Liberty , Alexis de Toqueville wrote ” “Liberty cannot be established without morality, nor morality without faith.” Think about that and how both Legacy & Liberty  are reliant on each other . The freedom to make choices each and every day in faith that they will lead you to unknown destinations, some spectacular some fearful yet all building a legacy of your choosing , good and bad, cherish and honor the good , and learn from the bad. The 4th week of MKE excitingly  continues to reveal more of the unknown  and more of my canvas and now the vibrant  colors blue, green , red and yellow will help create a incredible Legacy and bring additional liberty to this 66 year old world traveler … have a great week friends , see you next week

I always keep my promises , yes I do !!!! 

Ciao , j michael
