Judson's Legacy

The Importance of Story in Life


A favorite blogger of mine, Chris Brogan, recently asked about the importance of story in life, and it got me thinking…

It’s easy to look at our lives and question what’s going on…especially in the darkest of times.  But if we view our lives as a story, it gives perspective.  It helps us recognize that today probably isn’t the end.  It teaches us to note the challenges and successes of today so that they have a positive and lasting impact on our plot line.  And it helps us appreciate the fact that we’re connected to a multitude of characters who enrich our lives and give us strength for the journey.

This perspective gives me hope as we continue to move forward in life after losing Judson.

    It is interesting that really all of our respective lives depend not upon the year of our birth or of our death, but in the dash in between. That observation was made by Rick Warren sometime in the past. Jud’s dash was so short in time, but the outpouring of good is so great. It is just so sad that in doing such good, that the price you and Christina pay in your loss, is so dear.

    Amen Drake. We each do have a story that is continually progressing. Hopefully out of our stories come character/the fruit of the Spirit . . . (even when we don’t see it, God is faithful to perform it)
    Blessings to you, love, aunt sue
