Favorite Quote:
Know who you are, know Whose you are

Mama always told me that there will be a line when she gets to heaven.
That line will hold all the people she did not witness to.
She prays that line is short.
While I’m not a saint like my mother,
God knows I’m not,
I pray that I impact others
So that when people look at me in the street
Or if I pass them by at the store
They see a featured item
And not a leftover on the clearance rack.
Then when I go
And I say my bye and byes, and
I take my first steps on streets paved with gold
Angels will see a true heart
A heart of truth and humility.
I will see will the Angels and their glowing faces
And take comfort in the fact that I helped save them.

The author's comments:

I titled this poem after a quote that my mother told me. My mother is a very strong Christian, and she strives to be the very best person that she can be, and show God's love for others. It inspires me to be the very best person I can be.
