Randall had come home to visit his granddad who had been moved to the nursing home after a tumble down the steps at the farm had left him with a broken hip. Randall stopped by the farm on his way into town, a place that held so many wonderful childhood memories of summers spent with his grandparents. Looking across the field he spotted the old cross he had helped his granddad erect using rough cut beams from the barn. When he'd asked why they were putting up a cross, his granddad had said, "Well you see, Randall, all the years your grandma and I spent raising kids and running this farm... it hasn't been easy, but God's always been there to see us through. I want to remind folks who drive by that God gave us the very best gift of all. This cross here, this is to show Him how much I love his Son."~*~*~*~*~*~*~
