I was moseying around the backyard finding photos to take and my dad was in his workshop. He was always there, using his hands to turn an ordinary piece of wood into something beautiful. I used to go there as a kid and sit at his workbench, just talking to him about life, God, love, people, and the like as he would simultaneously create something great. This time, however, he told a story with his eyes. A tale of experience, wisdom, strength, and faith.
