Our family would like to lead a legacy, one of charity and perseverance.
DD and my favorite verse is,
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13
With Christ, we can persevere through anything. We are on a rocky road right now with one gigantic issue, but it is nothing the Lord cannot handle. Therefore, we have turned it over to Him and continue to persevere.
When it comes to charitable giving, our family is on the right track. But, when it comes to charitable volunteering, we fall short. We have not gone, as a family, to work on behalf of a charitable organization in quite some time. Personally, I give to charity A LOT with all of the running I participate in, but that is not the type of legacy builder we need.
Disney has made a fantastic outreach starting January 1, 2010. The program is called “Give a Day. Get a Disney Day.” In which you pledge, and WORK, one day at a charitable organization from their list and they will give you a free day to any Disney Park.
Remember when I told you all about our trip in March 2010? Well, I will be getting the WHOLE family together so we can enjoy a free day during our Spring Break trip next year, and starting the progression of a new legacy.
