Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.” Revelation 14:13

It’s certainly true we bring nothing into this world and take nothing when we pass, but how we treat our fellow man is the only things that lasts. In the hearts of those whose lives we touch from our beginnings to our end, is the only mark we leave on earth to leave the paths we have been. So brothers and sisters, plan your destiny well, because what you leave in the hearts of others will let us know your legacy is well.
