Tenacious, East Missoula, Montana
A long time past, some bold soul passing marked their unique print on this old neighborhood fence. And through all the weathering years, their mark held fast and declared their nameless influence to any traveler of alleys and paths less taken.
And so it is with those who love, in everyday deed and truth. Even if their name escapes memory, their strong example leaves a clinging and distinct imprint, un-erased by life’s roughest seasons. When threatened by discouragement and status quo, we can choose to follow the trail they've marked toward undeterred truth, and be heartened.
So provoked, the road we travel is forever altered, and we are ever thankful.
Happy Valentine's Day.
