Remembered For?

Tired of being the bigger person or taking the higher road! Iv made mistakes but so has everyone else!!! Sick of being judged and criticized when my sins arnt as big as those people that are criticizing! Standing up for my self is what I am going to be doing from here on out!!!

    I think the fighter in me loves this quote.  They say we all have the 'fight or flight' response to things in our lives.  Often we get them mixed up by, fighting when we should have fled or leaving when we should have fought harder.  Personally, it's easier for me to fight than to flee... that's good and bad.
    What do you want to be remembered for?  The violence in your life like Al Capone or the compassion in your life like Mother Teresa.  Actions do speak louder than words and you'll be remembered by them.
    The worst remembrance scenario for myself is if I was defined by my disease.  If that came true, then you really didn't know me at all.  A parent's worst scenario would be to be defined by their absence or abusive tendencies.
    Every month we do Communion to remember what Christ did for us on the cross.  What a wonderful way to be remembered... a life of sacrifice.


  1. You are so right! If you were only defined by your disease, then you would never have been known at all. So true of so many. We are all handicapped in different ways....none perfect, no not one. Many times we must look for the blessings in order to receive them. Your blog has helped so many of us get to know you...and each other....better. I can't imagine not having you in my life, Angie...what a wonderful blessing I would have missed. I know it is a sacrifice for you to teach us every day...and that is truly what you do....teach us. God is using you to let His light shine for others. What joy it brings to have others say, "I see Jesus in you." Believe me, we see Jesus in you. Love you, sweet friend...T.

  2. You will be remembered as one who shared Christ on your blog daily for your friends and readers, now and in the future. You demonstrate how to be a fighter in a number of ways -- Fight On---Love you---Dad

  3. I tend to cringe when the fight begins, being a peacemaker even in times when I should duke it out. But yes, our lives must be remembered by our service and our devotion to our Lord, to His desire for our daily lives. Thanks for your devotion to His will for your life, Angie.
