My Mother's Legacy

My mother is now in glory,
But that is not the end of the story.
There is a legacy she has left behind.
It brings joy and peace of mind.

My mother is now in a much better place,
Because she was saved by God's infinite grace.
She is no longer suffering any pain.
Eternal victory she has gained.

My mother cared for many children in her home.
She loved them as if they were her own.
From reading Bible stories to singing "Jesus loves me,"
She made an impact on their lives for all eternity.

My mother had a heart of compassion for others.
It was displayed in love for her Christian sisters and brothers.
Just the simple act of a phone call or sending a note,
Often brought encouragement to those she called and wrote.

My mother must look down from heaven and smile,
Knowing her sacrifices in life were all worthwhile.
I have precious memories of her that remain in my heart.
But most of all, her godly example, to me she did impart.

Someday I will join her when I reach my heavenly home.
All my labors on earth will be done, nevermore to roam.
But until that glorious day, I want to make my mother proud.
Her legacy lives on inside of me, to share with others all around.
