My Legacy is not in money
Nor assets rich and rare
It’s not possessing real estate
—-Nor stocks and bonds to share.
My Legacy involves the mark I’ve made
On hearts and souls here on earth;
Teaching my children to love the Lord
And experience His divine new birth.
And though I may not possess alot
Of worldly wealth and goods—
My Legacy is to be a Godly Mother
Giving to God, friends and family the best I could.
