Strong Character

So once again, I am not quite as quick as everyone else bloging about this, but what can you do?

This morning as I was eating my breakie, I read the paper, in which was a 10 page tribute to Steve Irwin, and while I had heard all about how he died and the impact that has made, I guess it didnĂ‚’t really hit me until this morning.

In the paper and on the news last nights there were all kinds of reports for Bindy's (his daughter) take over from her dad and how it has effected everyone, and how there were many "prayers". And it got me thinking...I wonder what Steve believed,Ii thought about his character and the things people had said about him. They way they talked of him as a genuine guy that loved life, someone who was passionate about everything and loved his family more than anything. I saw an interview with a guy that has been working with him for only 4 days, and the guy was a mess, the impact thatStevee had had in those few days wasunbelievablee.

I guess from where I sat, to me, Steve acted like a Godly man, now I have nothing to back up whether he was or wasn't a Godly man, but I guess itchallengedd me, as to what kind of impact do I have? I know that I love God, I know some of what God's character is like yet sometimes I know I am nothing like that. I think that if I was more likeStevee, I kind of reckon that if I was I would be more like God, not thatStevee is God by anystretchh of the imagination, but just in the way I would treat others, love God's creation and live my life.

I would like to know whereStevee was at, but I guess I never will now, well not until I get to heaven, and hopefully I will see him there. Anyway, I guess what I really want to say is I want to make an impact for good, I want to be able to leave a legacy like he has, but most of all I want to be as genuine about life as he was.Isn'tt great the things God can use to teach us a lesson..Whoo would have thought.

Just a thought I had...

Stay tuned.

i think he acted in a godly way but, i'm not sure that he was a christian man, just based upon what bindi said in an interview i saw today, she was talking about mother nature as being in control of everything. i could be completely wrong, i don't know, if i see him in heaven i'll say "Crikey, its good to see you here mate' and i might even ask 'does quarentine matter? and what if i do muck with it"

i don't know i guess he might be up there somewhere.

just a little update, I heard a rumor that Steve Irwin got saved a couple weeks before he died, so I don't know if it is true but I hope that it is coz then I will get to meet him...Yay!!!!
