Mother was poor by this world's standards. She didn't have much money or many material possessions, yet she had riches beyond measure in her deep, abiding faith in God and love for her Savior, Jesus Christ. When she left this earth, she left behind for her children an inheritance worth more than all the wealth of this world. Because of her faith, her children and grandchildren are blessed with faith in Jesus. She served the Lord faithfully all her life, and now I, her daughter, am blessed to watch a fourth generation, her great-grandchildren, also grow to serve the Lord. And when these great-grandchildren are old enough to produce the next generation, I have confidence that they, too, will serve the Lord, for God's promises are true and they can be relied upon.
This gift of faith in Jesus Christ is her legacy. Because of one woman's strong, quiet faith, many others have come into that same faith.
So, thank you, dear Mother. Generations are blessed because of you. I look forward to worshipping the Lord with you for all eternity, hearing you sing, "The Old Rugged Cross," as it's never been sung before, and seeing you crowned with the glory of the Lord.
