I recently completed a 40-day series on my Simplicity Journey which was an effort to start living more responsibly, more intentionally, and more meaningfully. That journey for me continues. I will add to it in the weeks ahead.
Today I am starting a new series of articles entitled “Lessons from my Father.” I will write several days each week about things my dad, Lewis Marler, taught me with his life. Even though he is no longer living, he continues to influence my life twelve years later.
And what’s in it for you to walk down this memory lane with me?
As I share stories, I will ask you to do the same about lessons you’ve learned from people in your life who are no longer living. Maybe my story will remind you of your stories. Maybe we can remember important principles that can give us direction in our lives when we have lost our way. My hope is we can benefit from the collection of lessons as a community.
Here is your backpack with ample food and water and supplies in it, trust me it’s not too heavy, and the trip will not be too far. We will rest when we are tired, and encourage one another when we need it most.
Will you walk with me on this trail for awhile as we sit around a campfire, or on top of a mountain, or walk through the valley, as we remember stories about people who have made a difference in our lives who are no longer living?
Tie your shoestrings on your hiking boots, it’s time to start walking. Are you coming?
