I love God, Jesus, my family and friends, and children of all ages! To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. I don't mind if you've got something nice to say about me 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 I won't lie, it feels alright to see your name in lights 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 I want to leave a legacy 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 I don't have to look too far or too long awhile 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 Not well traveled, not well read, not well-to-do or well bred Just want to hear instead, "Well Done" good and faithful one... Nichole Nordeman, "Legacy" â€œLet justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an overflowing stream.â€ ~ Amos 5:24 â€œTeach My words to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your children may be manyâ€¦â€ ~ Deuteronomy 11: 19-21 NIV â€œI pray hard, work hard, and leave the rest to God.â€ ~ Florence Griffith Joyner â€œDiscernment is nothing else but the true knowledge a soul ought to have of herself and of God, and through this knowledge she finds her roots.â€ ~ Catherine of Siena â€œLife is a glorious opportunity.â€ ~ Billy Graham â€œOur love, or our lack of itâ€¦ will in the end be an expression of ourselves: of who we think we are, of what we want to be, of what we think we are here for.â€ ~ Thomas Merton â€œYou have to remember one thing about the will of the people: It wasnâ€™t that long ago that we were swept away by the Macarena.â€ ~ Jon Stewart â€œMother is a verb, not a noun.â€ O Magazine
