Kentucky Color: Past That Lives In Us
Note: Click headline for photo with article.
By Billy Joe Fudge
I've often said, "we can't live in the past but the past lives in us". Each morning as I make coffee on my old family Baker's Hutch, I am reminded of the hardships that were lovingly endured by my family and others, to propel us all into this present time of relative ease!
We owe it to them to never forget. We owe it to ourselves to always remember the strong shoulders upon which we stand, the floured hands kneading biscuit dough at the break of day and the faith in the future that empowered our forefathers to overcome every obstacle, to defeat every enemy!
We arise each morning, giving thanks to the Creator of the Heavens and Earth for blessing us with another day to conquer mountains, right wrongs and practice the "Golden Rule". Similarly and soon afterwards, we should give thanks for our ancestors who believed that we and today were worth the sacrifices. Let us go about each and every day in a manner worthy of those who built the, "past that lives in us".
