One of the things I'm always struck by whenever I spend time with my sons is what good daddies they are. I see so much of my own father in them, as well I should, since he invested some of his best fathering in the grandfathering of them. As I observed my oldest interacting with his sons this morning, it occurred to me that this was the 100th anniversary of my father's birth. He cultivated "fruit that will last," when he sowed the seeds of love in their lives. Thank you, Lord, for this extraordinary man. His love touched the lives of so many and he truly left this world a better place than he found it. Help all of his descendants to live up to this legacy.
