The word testify means to provide evidence of or to make a statement of truth. I read the poem “TESTIFY” for the first time 12 years ago. I was so impacted by the words that I immediately committed it to memory. I don’t remember where I saw it, nor do I remember the author. But I decided that by memorizing it, it would be a constant reminder to me that my choices, decisions and my actions would testify louder that any words I could possibly utter. I want my life to speak for me.
I’m far from perfect, but I definitely try to allow my Faith to govern my actions…and this poem most certainly sums it up.
I hope that those words will also inspire you. Even if you’re not religious, our life’s action makes a statement of truth.
On another note:
Like many of you, this month has been extremely busy. We’ve been traveling almost every weekend and between the classroom activities and holiday events, in addition to my normal day to day… I can barely keep up. Despite my best effort, my blog posting, reading, commenting and responding have been irregular at best. Having said that, I’ve decided to go on an official blogging vacation for the rest of the year. I do, however plan on posting on December 23rd for the Holly Bloggy Christmas Party sponsored by Joi and maybe a quick Merry Christmas/Happy New Year post.
I’ll hopefully be seeing you all around the social media scene.
- What does your actions say about you?
- Is your blogging schedule being affected by the “busyness” of the holiday season?
