How to Build a Legacy
Gene Bauer planted a garden of daffodils on a mountainside. Each spring that mountainside is awash in yellow. Visitors come to marvel at the beauty. And they come with questions. So Mrs. Bauer posted a fact sheet about her monumental daffodil extravaganza.
The fact sheet says:
More than 1 million bulbs have been planted.
The planting has been done over 46 years.
Some bulbs that were planted in 1958 are still blooming.
Gene Bauer selected and planted every bulb you see.
This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. Mrs. Bauer's daffodils are a picture of how to build a legacy. Do a thing well. Stay faithful, plant carefully, persevere . . . and transform your surroundings in the high calling of our daily work.
If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw,
his work will be shown for what it is . . . If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward.
