< Past --------- Future >

Your Heritage is where you came from. Your Legacy is what you leave when you are no longer here!  Heritage ---life lived-----Legacy!  Both your heritage & legacy say alot about you, who you are and what was important to you while you occupied the 70-80 years here on planet earth. 

I recently was discussing heritage with my family.  What is our family heritage, how would you discribe it?  What are the nouns and adjectives that would come with our past?

Here was a sample of the list as they came to me from our family.  Here is a little of the Hufford heritage:

  1. Committed followers of Jesus Christ
  2. Farmers
  3. Faithful
  4. Parents that loved their children well
  5. Hard workers
  6. Honest & Dependable
  7. Innovative
  8. British, German, Holland, Scotland roots
  9. Thrifty
It is humbling!  It is unheard of in 2019!  It is rare!  But, Yes this list is a sample of the words that describe our family heritage.  We are blest!   We are thankful for our past fathers & mothers who stayed the course and finished strong.

NOW, It is up to us!  If you are reading this, it is up to you!  What will your life legacy be?  How will your life effect your families heritage?  You and I only have the ------------ (dash) between our birthdates and our deathdates to define our legacy!  

What will yours be?
