Both of my Grandfathers, and my Dad for a time, were Coal Miners. Where I came from, for many years, this was part of our culture. When I think of the men and women who labored in this grueling work, I think of nobility, commitment, and love.
Solomon said to enjoy the rewards of your labor is a God given gift. These men worked so hard to put food on the table, clothes on their children’s backs, and provide a future for them. I’ve never been a coal miner, but I will never forget their sacrifice, which helped bring me to where I am today.
