Twenty years ago, I wanted to be an award-winning news reporter in the big city.
Twelve years ago, I vowed (publicly, in an opinion essay) that I would never return to rural Iowa.
This morning, I slipped on work boots, carried a chore bucket, and leaned over the farm gate, while teary-eyed over the way that two baby calves eat grain straight out of my hand.
“When God is involved,
anything can happen.
Be open. Stay that way.
God has a beautiful way of bringing
good vibrations out of broken chords.”
~ Charles Swindoll
“Every experience God gives us,
every person he brings into our lives,
is the perfect preparation for the future that only he can see.”
~ Corrie Ten Boom
