how do you want to be remembered?

September 3, 2008

today, i’m sitting in a hospital waiting room, while my friend brent has sinus surgery. i’ve been here for a while, and just discovered they have wi-fi here…so what better time to update the blog?

the televisions in the surgery center are all turned to cnn today, and the topic of conversation is…the republican national convention. i’ve heard enough about sarah palin, her pregnant daughter, and john mccain. in fact, i think i’ve heard more than enough. i am officially over it. i am sick of the over-pressed coverage of politics.

as i ask the question today, how do you want to be remembered, there are reasons for it. i wonder how politicians want to be remembered. i wonder how reporters want to be remembered. i wonder how i want to be remembered.

i don’t know about the rest of those, but i want to be remembered as someone who got past the religion of the day. i want to be known as someone who was truly different because of my relationship with Christ. i want to be someone who has been changed at the very core of who i am.

i don’t want to be known as someone who is a part of a particular group, denomination, or even someone who is a rule-follower. i want my love for Christ to show me as different…
