Posterity

D619C3AE-AAAC-44DA-A699-B57243001F32“Posterity shall serve him; it shall be told of the Lord to the coming generation; they shall come and proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn, that he has done it.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭22:30-31‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Today my family went to Maymont and enjoyed all the free activities.  In 1893, James Dooley, a wealthy Richmond lawyer and philanthropist, and his wife, Sallie (who grew up in my home county of Lunenburg) completed their elaborate Gilded Age 100 acre estate high above the James River.  They left Maymont to future Richmonders.  What a great gift indeed that has blessed so many people.  What if everyone left a gift that kept providing joy to future generations?
