I have jumped into Digital Scrapbooking and am LOVING IT!!!! I love that I can sit and scrapbook a page and not pull out a lot of mess.
Scrapbooking is important to me because of the song by Nicole Nordeman
Leaving a Legacy
I don't mind if you've got something nice to say about me
And I enjoy an accolade like the rest
You could take my picture and hang it in a gallery
Of all the who's who and so-n-so's that used to be the best
At such 'n such...it wouldn't matter much
I won't lie, it feels alright to see your name in lights
We all need an "Atta boy" or "Atta girl"
But in the end I'd like to hang my hat on more besides
the temporary trappings of this world
I want to leave a legacy
How will they remember me?
Did I choose to love?
Did I point to you enough to make a mark on things?
I want to leave an offering
A child of mercy and grace who blessed Your name unapologetically
And leave that kind of legacy
I don't have to look too far or too long awhile
To make a lengthy list of all that I enjoy
It's an accumulating trinket and a treasure pile
Where moth and rust, thieves and such will soon destroy
Not well traveled, not well read, not well-to-do or well bred
Just want to hear instead, "Well done" good and faithful one
I feel by scrapping my memories and journaling with them I am leaving a legacy for my children to look back on. My 6.5 year old loves to look at his scrapbook from when he was a baby. He will sit and flip through the pages for a long time.
I have two awesome little boys....what kind of legacy am I leaving for them? How will they remember me?
