Let's kick things off with our video for chapter 2. Ignore the fact that we are ghostly white - weird light. :) Be sure to have Crazy Love near you so you can follow along with us.
Here are the lyrics to Nichole Nordeman's Legacy
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 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
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 lengthly list of all that I enjoy
It's an accumulating trinket and a treasure pile
Where moth and rust, thieves and such will soon enough destroy
Not well traveled, not well read, not well-to-do or well bred
Just want to hear instead, "Well Done" good and faithful one...

Here are this week's questions
How do you make it a habit to take your thoughts captive and offer your thoughts to God?
How do you bring glory to God in the "mundane" of life?
How do you reduce stress in your life?
What do you do when you catch yourself being selfish?
What thoughts do you have when you think about your legacy?
As always, join us on the ning site to discuss these questions, as well as any thoughts you have on chapter two!
