The world around us is a grand mix of beautiful moments and harsh realities. Leaves may turn autumn gold, but they eventually give way and fall. The fields may yield bountiful harvests, but they require hard work and patience to bring that bounty forth. A strong yet sensitive man faces these realities and moves forward with a sense of being a part of these contrasts. He knows that he is the one that can comfort and support his children, but he is also the one who brings them along in this drama of life where good and bad, beauty and bareness, even leisure and hard work go hand in hand. Proverbs 20:4 implores us to plow in the cold if we do not want to beg at the harvest. Let your “Legacy” be one of living fully and joyfully no matter what is before you.
— Mark Keathley
