Words to SPARK your Heart-Song – Episode #183

Live the way you want to be remembered!

Hi everyone. I’m Sherry Douglas with Heart-Song. Each week at the end of the video, I say, “Live the way you want to be remembered!” That’s the purpose of Heart-Song – prompting you to do just that.

Before any of us can be sure we truly are living the way we want to be remembered, it’s necessary to figure out what values or character traits are the most important to us. For example, if I want to be remembered as being kind, how am I living so others personally experience my kindness?

If I want to be remembered as a giving person, how am I giving? Do I monetarily support an organization that serves children, animals, the hungry or any other group I cherish? Do I give my time doing something that I’m passionate about that helps others?

If I want to be remembered as a person of faith, am I sharing it with others? Am I part of a faith community encouraging and taking part in spiritual formation?

If I want to be remembered as a person of integrity, am I honest in my business dealings? Do I tell the truth? Do I speak well of others?

You and I will live in different ways – and isn’t that a wonderful part of life? Because we have been made as unique creations, we bring variety to the world.

Let’s first determine the values and character traits that are non-negotiables for us. Meaning that no matter what happens, we’re going to hold on to them. Next, we have to ask ourselves some questions to determine if we’re on course in our living or if we need to make some adjustments.
