I Want to Leave a Legacy

There are more Lessons from Aunt Beck coming this week, but today we want to remind our readers of the express purpose for this blog.

We are always looking to learn from your stories about living at The Intersection of Purpose and Now, as well as give you practical guidance on how to live the remarkable life that is calling you. One who tells this story well is singer Nichole Nordeman with her song “Legacy”. Read and take in the lyrics, enjoy the YouTube video, blip and Twitter the song to others. Most of all, consider the message and join us at The Intersection.

Lyrics to Legacy, by Nichole Nordeman

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

Chorus:
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

Chorus

Not well traveled, not well read, not well-to-do or well bred
Just want to hear instead, “Well done” good and faithful one

Chorus

I don’t mind if you’ve got something nice to say about me
