One of my favorite things to do, when I'm in the car by myself....is to listen to the radio.  

Just the other day, I was listening to Dr. David Jeremiah and one of the statements that he made was this:

"Your character is the one lasting thing that goes in your casket...the one thing, that you should be and will be remembered for."

On this early Sat. morning....I've been thinking about this very statement.  Seems that lately, we have attended way too many funeral visitations and we have another visitation and service to attend tomorrow and Monday.  

Just think about it!  Our Character is so very important...not only while we are living, but after death as well.

Character?  your mental and moral 
qualities!!

Integrity, Loyalty, Honesty...these are the first things that most of us think of when considering a good character.

but...what about...Optimism, Compassion, Perseverance, Kindness, Giving...and we can't forget about Forgiveness??

"Character is doing things right when no one is looking!"
                      J.C. Watts

It is very important for us to have... and maintain good character in our lives. 

I can only hope that my family, friends, and acquaintances view my life as one with "Great" character.

Hugs, 
Shug

  2. Hi Shug!

    What a great post!! I think you are so right, our character will follow us to the grave...and beyond! Being thoughtful, kind, compassionate, patient and having lots of perseverance, all qualities that I want to possess. I love the quote by, J.C. Watts, and have used it many times, when my children were growing up. I think what we do, and how we act when others aren't looking is really the key to a great character.

    I have attended way too many funerals as well, and I always think of the good things those people have done, it gives me some peace.

    Thank you for posting your thoughts today, it was just what I needed to hear!

    Hugs and Love,
    Barb

  3. I have no doubt, but that your family and friends would think very highly of you.I was told just yesterday to think about what I wanted said at my funeral and then start living so that it could indeed be truthfully said.
