We will not hide these truths from our children;
we will tell the next generation
about the glorious deeds of the Lord,
about his power and his mighty wonders.
A chapter closed this week and I pulled out my resume to update it. As I scrolled down the page listing activities, accomplishments, and positions, memories flooded my mind.
I received Christ as my Savior when I was nine years old and had a camp counselor that encouraged me to be and do all that God would have for me. I always wanted to make a difference and chose to participate in areas where that would be possible. The needs of my children, community, church, and nation called out for my help. And I answered with a YES. My mother used to say, “A thing worth doing is worth doing well,” and I endeavored to follow her advice.
Yes, my resume has some impressive entries but the final line is the most important and says it all — Married to Mark Blumberg. Two children and five granddaughters.
So why do I update my resume? Maybe, one day one of those grandgirlies will find it interesting to read and discover that Nana had a life of purpose and position. But what I want them to remember most, is that Nana loved God, leaned on Him in difficult times, always believed in hope, and loved them with all her heart.
A resume is only a snapshot of fading achievements, but a legacy of love will last for generations.
