Remember the fun of finding a place that echo’s….
I loved riding my bike through a tunnel when I was younger and it seemed as if I could have stayed there for hours calling out and hearing the words bounce back…..
I know that I hope my echo includes being advocate, passionate and compassionate. I also want my echo to include that people are more important than things and tasks and that relationships are hard work and well worth working at. Somehow also woven into that echo are the words kindness to self and others and curiosity creates a delightful mystery in living.
Hmm, that is not such a crisp echo, but it is what flows from my heart tonight. Of course I want my echo to resonate my faith, but I don’t want the echo of my faith to push people away (believers or unbelievers), but rather invite people in, so our echo’s can mix and create a unique echo which glorifies my Maker.
And so, I wonder what the echo of your life is. If you were riding through the tunnel, what message would bounce back for your ears to hear. Every day holds opportunity to ensure our echo is as we desire. Live well and enjoy the echo!
