A Weekend of Making Tracks

One of the great things about living in the country when it snows is that you can finally see what's in the woods around you. We don't have night vision goggles, so the tracks left in the snow and on the ice give us a little glimpse into who's out there.

Their snow prints show us a little bit about who they are, where they're coming from and where they're going. The little ones coming up to the back door this morning don't excite me very much (Danny says it's just a cat, but I think it's polar bear), but the ones on the ponds fascinate me. They're large enough that I can see them from the upper deck.

Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe. 1 Thessalonians 2:10

Just like those animals walking through the snow, we're leaving a trail behind us, too. Every day that we walk through life as a daughter of the King, we're making impressions on the people we meet. The question then becomes, are we leaving tracks that we'd like someone else to follow?

Those who come behind us will see the tracks we make and that is our legacy here on earth. They show where we came from, where we've been and where we're going. The life we live lays it all out there for everyone to see.

Make this a weekend of making tracks - behaving yourself in a way that is holy, just and without blame in the sight of God. That's how we'll truly leave a mark on the lives of those around us.
