What Will You Leave Behind?

When Ruth Paul White and Jason 001

When I look at the three generations in this photo from the past there is one word that describes all three. That word is LOVE!  On of the most important choices we must make in life is what legacy we will leave behind when we are gone. No matter what has happened in our past, we can change the destiny for future generations by loving those who are part of our family. This little guy has grown into a wonderful father and is now preparing his children to pass this legacy on.

Leave a Legacy of Love

When all is said and done and your life here is finished

When the race and crown is won

Leave a legacy of Love

When your body fades away and your strength and spirit fail you

When grief and sorrow stay

Leave a legacy of Love

Wealth and fame are soon forgotten and friends they buy are gone

What will you give your children

Leave a legacy of Love

When they look back at you and all the things you’ve done

The only thing that lasts

Is your legacy of Love

Leave a legacy of Love

Leave a legacy of Love

When all is said and done

Leave a legacy of Love
