Bob was here.

I was scrolling through some old pictures on my iPad the other day and one popped up that made me smile.  (see attached photo)  It was one of those vacation photo opportunities that I couldn't pass up.

We were visiting the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee and there was a sign warning 'would be' graffiti artist that any destruction to park property would be met with server consequences.  

It said, Bob Was Here, because someone named Bob carved those three words into the wood walls of one of the  historic building in the national park.  Since my husband's name is Bob, you can understand why it was the photo opt of the trip.  

Three years ago, I went to China to visit family and it was a joy to walk the steps that many had walked before me at the Great Wall of China.   Unlike the Smokey Mountains, China provided a place for those who felt impressed to leave their names as a memento of their visit.  That was an opportunity that I couldn't pass up.  So I wrote my name on the Great Wall of China.

When I look at these two photos, I see two very different choices laid out before us that bring to mind this question.  Will you leave your mark on this world...or not? 

It is my prayer that my life will impact others for eternity and when I leave a place others will see that Jesus had been there more than me.  

In Daniel 12:3 it says this...Those who lead many people to righteousness will shine like the stars forever and ever.  

I can't think of a better way to leave my mark on this world than leading people to righteousness!  

How about you?
