For my beloved father !!

My father left his earthly abode to join the Heavenly Abode on 8th march 2012.

In memory of him, i dedicate this song “Legacy” by Nicole Nordeman.

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 the 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

Chorus:
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 lengthy list of all that I enjoy
It’s an accumulating trinket and a treasure pile
Where moth and rust, thieves and such will soon destroy

Chorus

Not well traveled, not well read, not well-to-do or well bred
Just want to hear instead, “Well done” good and faithful one

Chorus

What do YOU think?

    I have a home in heaven above,
    From sin and sorrow free,
    A mansion which eternal love,
    Design and formed for me.——–Bennett

    Heaven is a prepared place
    for a prepared people.

    My mother went to be with Jesus in heaven very recently. How gracious our heavenly Father is to take care of our loved ones until we rejoin them in our eternal home.
