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,
(Good news: The calves, sick last week, are getting better.)
Writing in community with Michelle and Jen this week
every person he brings into our lives,
is the perfect preparation for the future that only he can see.”
~ Corrie Ten Boom
