A MOTHER’S LEGACY

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.
