Day 73, March 13

"Let us leave a splendid legacy for our children...let us turn to them and say, this you inherit: guard it well, for it is far more precious than money...and once destroyed, nature's beauty cannot be repurchased at any price."  ~ Ansel Adams
I love these words of the famous photographer.  Guarding the beauty of our earth, protecting it, cherishing it, should be a priority for all of us.
As I read and re-read the quote, I realize that Adams' words might just as easily apply to another kind of legacy, that of our testimony of the Lord.  Are we guarding it, protecting it, cherishing it?  
So, for today, I am grateful for those who guard legacies.

  1. We must guard legacies. I am also a proponent of using wisely what we have been given. We must use and appreciate this beautiful world, not pretend that we are somehow dangerous intruders into it. Likewise, we must use our testimony of the Lord. It is only when something has been used well and appreciated that it becomes a fit legacy to hand down to future generations.
