There’s More To The Story

One of the many awesome privileges that I have as a pastor is sitting down and listening to someone’s story.  Most individuals tell me their story with the circumstances and the things people do or not do at the forefront.


And, yes, this is a big BUT.

There’s more to the story.

The story’s message, which is the legacy of an individual, is how it’s all managed.

I’ve been so reminded of this through my friend, Barbie Dalke, who’s story should be entitled ELEGANT GRACE.  She’s been gone from this earth for almost a month.  I, along with hundreds of others, miss her each day.

Her story embodies grace and love, which will continue to speak forever.  Because . .  God, history, and experience has made it clear . . . LOVE NEVER ENDS.  A never-ending story continues to impact generation after generation.

The thing is . . .

the door is opened for all of humanity . . .

to be a part of God’s story of love.

It’s a matter of how we choose to manage our own story . . .

when we invite the purest and most powerful love into our lives . . .

the story never ends . . .

making a difference . . .

impacting generation after generation.

It’s a choice.

 Let the love of God be the “more” of your story.

–Be intentional.  BE LOVE–Kerrie

I Corinthians 13:8:  Love never ends  . . . (NRSV).
