I remember a preacher who was very passionate about sharing his faith.

One day in a sermon, he repeated the theme, “I have a burden”. It was a burden he chose, to do all he could to better the lives of others. It took him away from home quite often. It took time away from his own family. But it was a calling, one he took very seriously.

I feel that way about waging peace. I want to shout to the world, “What in God’s name are we doing? Why are we killing, instead of growing something good?”

Maybe it is in my blood, my roots.

I am an Iowa farm girl. We grow things here. We are about creating things, not destroying them. We are about planting seeds and hoping something good springs from them.

So, today my burden is to plant the seeds of peace, love and tolerance.

I may not live to see the harvest but I will know it started with me.

The Storm

This is how it feels at times.

It is a storm, raging through my life, my family, my home.

It threatens to swallow me up in its fury.

I cannot run from it.It is too swift and powerful.

So, face it, I must. And I will.
