Sorry for not having very many posts recently. There will be some coming in the near future. But for the moment, as I was cleaning yesterday I found a poem by Josephine W. Johnson that I received from Gene Herr. It’s worth a read.
Let Go, ReturnThis is the need, The deep necessity of every life: To Scatter wide seed in many fields But build one barn. This is our blunder, to have built Gilt shacks for every seed,, And followed our sowing on fast, anxious feet, Desiring to grind the far most grain. Let go. Let go. Return. Heighten and straighten the barn’s first beam. Give shape and form. Discover the rat, The splintered stair. Throw out the dry, gray corn. Then may it be said of you: Behold, he has done on thing well, And he knows whereof he speaks, and He means what he has said And we may trust him. This is sufficient for a life.
