Wait, I’m what?

Welp, ready or not! Michael and I are very excited to say we’re going to be parents in August! Perhaps a bit sooner than planned, but we serve a funny God. Pregnancy so far has been…interesting. But now that I’ve started on my second trimester, it has been awesome! We’ll find out in 4 weeks what we’re having. I’m pulling for a girl. I can hardly resist all the cute clothes! They’re taunting me!

So exciting!

Will they have to lie at your funeral? Will they have to do their best to make you sound like you were a life well lived? Will the people in your audience stare at the big elephant in the room as they describe a person that they all know you weren’t? Those questions plague me.

I don’t want you to hear that I was a nice person, because that probably isn’t what they would say anyway. I don’t want you to hear that I was a free spirit and a delight to be around, because that probably isn’t true either. What I DO want them to say is that I lived to honor God. No matter what that looked like. No matter where it took me. No matter the reputation it gave me, or the many opinions that swirled. I lived with a purpose and a passion. And His name is Jesus! I lived for the reason I was created. And hopefully in the midst of that I made an impact for Him on many lives that will last through eternity.

What will they say at your funeral? I hope that question keeps you up at night.
