Somewhere around 1992 we had a family gathering at our home. My father was playing accordion and my Nana was there as well. I had the VHS camcorder out and was walking around capturing the action. At one point, I found Nana sitting on the porch and started interviewing her about her life and what she remembered in her younger days. Now I want to find that tape and digitize it before we lose what she had shared.
A few of us having been talking a lot about capturing the stories behind our photographs for future generations to see and hear. I guess this is part of growing older (and wiser?). George Bernard Shaw wrote, youth is wasted on the young. We are really motivated by the idea of leaving life lessons behind for our children, their children and their children’s children. Our dream is to see future generations living in wisdom and being a blessing to others.
The Scriptures were recorded for us to know God’s dealing with humanity. This is one of the ways He reveals Himself to us and draws us to Him. The heart of God is that people would be set free from what imprisons and keeps them from worshiping Him. His plans for us are very good and are born out of an unfailing love.
Leave a legacy of faith.
Psalm 102:18 Let this be recorded for a generation to come,
so that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord:
19 that he looked down from his holy height;
from heaven the Lord looked at the earth,
20 to hear the groans of the prisoners,
to set free those who were doomed to die,
21 that they may declare in Zion the name of the Lord,
and in Jerusalem his praise,
22 when peoples gather together,
and kingdoms, to worship the Lord.
