One Sentence

In a seminar today my phone buzzed. It was a text from a friend that had a simple request; “sum up a person’s life in one sentence.” I stared at the screen, overwhelmed by the request. One sentence that encapsulates someone’s 80 plus years of existence? A few words to describe the enormous impact of a life well lived? A brief glimpse of a person with eternal value? After reflecting upon it for a while I wrote down a sentence that explained who she was at her core, her essence, who I’ll always remember her being.

As I think about the exercise I wonder if others would remember her life the way I did? I’m biased, seeing mostly her goodness, kindness, grace and love. I’m thankful those are the impressions she left upon me and I hope, when the day comes for someone to sum up my life in a sentence, the same can be said about me.
