Today is Good Friday, and without getting too religious, I just want to say we all have our own sort of crosses to carry each day.

Every person you meet or see is dealing with some kind of struggle. It may be work stress or health issues. It may be family and money problems, grief, or fear, you just never know what someone else is going through behind closed doors. For that reason alone, and so many more, we all need to remember to be kind to each other each and every day.

While scrolling through Facebook this morning I came across a post shared by WLS-AM 890 in Chicago and it gave me the dose of feel-goods that I really needed today...

After doing some quick Facebook stalking, I discovered Dave Kestel is a farmer who lives in Manhattan, Illinois, and decided to take advantage of the recent bout of good weather to plow this important message for his Dad.

Along with posting the pictures you see above, Dave wrote;

Happy Easter from our Farm !!😇 Hey Dad in Heaven, How does it look from up there?😇 Someone with powers more than us gave me a tiny weather window this week to get this done!!😇🇺🇸 I believe!!!😇

 

Isn't that the sweetest?!?

Dave Kestel also shared some pics of the work in progress...

I also discovered this isn't the first time Dave Kestel has taken his art to his farm fields either. He's plowed crosses before...

The only thing I couldn't discover about Dave Kestel's artwork is how he gets the awesome aerial view of it. I'm assuming it's the work of a drone, but either way, it's a job very well done! Thanks for the beautiful and important message, Dave! We look forward to seeing what you come up with next!
