i remember the wrong things. i make copious lists, keep multiple calendars both digital and paper, yet still, i forget things that are important and fail to reach my goals.
i blame my illness. i blame failing to remember my agenda. i blame myself. i pass out post-it notes to my family and tell them to be sure to, “write it down.”
i have a shelf filled with old planners and agendas overflowing with bits of paper flowing with all the things that i did do.
i have been guilty of calling that shelf the history of my life.
All the things that i have done do not represent my life.
i forget. My life is what i have done for Christ.
i have a little wallet-card that i received in Sunday School as a little girl For years i carried it everywhere i went. It had a picture of Jesus on the front and a verse on the back.
It was not a verse from the Bible. It simply says,
Only one life,
‘Twill soon be passed,
Only what’s done for Christ,
i remember the wrong things.
