My great-grandson, Stone

Here are seven things I hope after I’m gone my children and grandchildren will remember learning at my feet or hearing about.

1. Accept Jesus as Savior and follow God's Word. Those two things are the most important decisions you’ll ever make.

2. Guard your mind. Put good things into your head, and refuse to open your brain to propaganda, lies, lustful movies, filthy conversations, etc.,. Resist exposing yourself to evil—and realize once planted into your brain you might never forget filth. Plant God’s Word into your mind, and scriptures will also stay with you—possibly all your life—encouraging, blessing you and increasing your faith..

3. Love God and others, especially those in your family and in the household of faith. Do unto others as you'd have them do unto you.

4. Choose your friends wisely.

5. Develop your talents, and do and look and be your best.

6. Establish goals and work willing with your hands. When you see a need or something that needs to be done, do it now. Don't wait until tomorrow.

7. Have fun, good friends, laugh often, enjoy your life seeking for the fruits of the spirit—love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, meekness, faithfulness, self control—and always be ready for the return of Jesus Christ with your sins forgiven and under His blood.

LAST, a word from my mother for her grandchildren: "Only one life, 'twill soon be past; only what's done for Christ will last.

5. Develop your talents, and do and look and be your best.
