Our Future Stands with our past, October 15 Daily Reflection

My son at a gravesite

Our future stands there beyond the brambles, through the fallen leaves looking upon the past. He stands there with respect in awe of the years stated on the headstone, 1880 is out of his realm of understanding. He stands there pondering, pausing in his action filled life of playing, biking and sheer joy to take the time to witness one who went before him.

We could all learn so much from this precious moment. If we could pause in reverence for those who have gone before us, if we could learn from the lives of those who lived in a different time and day maybe we could learn, grow and be better people than we are today.
