Memories Of Who I Am

This week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post is the word OBJECT. 

I honestly feel a little strange about the object I chose but let me explain…

LillieThis is the grave of my great-great grandfather, the first Joseph Elon Lillie. He was born in 1847 in Erving MA. I have visited it from time to time throughout the course of my life; But I took this picture at a time when I felt I was losing touch with who I really was…why I mattered. Standing beside my namesake’s  grave and remembering the Christian heritage that made up the tapestry of my life drew me back to the reality that I  was made for a purpose.
