First and foremost, I want to be remembered as someone whose primary aim in life was to glorify God. I want it to be said that I was supremely happy in God and that I made Him look incredibly valuable--like He is. I want to be remembered as someone who loved and feared God over everyone and everything else, who was completely sold out for Christ. I want Christ to be the focus-- because He was the main focus of my life.
I also want to be known for the things I've done for God's kingdom-- helping people in need, educating, encouraging, raising godly children, working alongside my husband. I want it to be said that I was a fully devoted to to whatever it was that I was doing, rather than just kind of floating along-- actually making a difference. I want many people to say, "Because of Carissa (really Christ working through me) such and such is better in my life" I want to be someone that when you meet me, you come away changed for the better in some way.
I want to be known as someone who was kind, loving, humble, lived with integrity, dressed modestly, was diligent, patient, self-controlled, fun, and so on.
And there's more. But that's all for now. I wrote this while reading the book, "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People." And posted it for Felicity. :D
So... what about you? What do you want to be known for?
