Do I show by my example how to love others more deeply?
Of course I want my husband to remember me as a loving wife, partner and best friend.
Of course I want my children to remember me as the mother of all mothers!
But mostly, this is what I want people to say.
I want that to be my legacy.
Thank you for joining me for this Simply Sunday at the Fence,
And I enjoy an accolade like the rest
You could take my picture and hang it in a gallery
Of all who’s who and so-n-so’s that used to be the best
At such’n’such … it wouldn’t matter much
We all need an ‘Atta boy’ or ‘Atta girl’
But in the end I’d like to hang my hat on more besides
The temporary trappings of this world
How will they remember me?
Did I choose to love? Did I point to You enough
To make a mark on things?
I want to leave an offering
A child of mercy and grace who
blessed your name unapologetically
And leave that kind of legacy
To make a lengthly list of all that I enjoy
It’s an accumulating trinket and a treasure pile
Where moth and rust, thieves and such will soon enough destroy
Just want to hear instead, “Well Done” good and faithful one…
