From The Chaplain's Desk
October 2013 Chaplain's Corner
 

By Barbara C. Kulish, CT State Grange Chaplain

  OCTOBER 5, 2013 --

“A MEDITATION”

I have worked in the fertile earth and planted a garden,

So I know what FAITH is.

 

I have listened to the birds caroling in the morning 

and at dusk,

So I know what MUSIC is.

 

I have seen the morning without clouds and showers,

So I know what BEAUTY is.

 

I have sat before a wood fire with old friends,

So I know what COMPANIONSHIP is.

 

I have walked the path of quietness along 

the forest floor,

So I know what PEACE is.

 

I have dwelt in the valley of remembrance 

and on the hills of home,

So I know what LOVE is.

 

I have seen the miracle of Spring, 

the fruitation of Summer,

and the beauty of Autumn, followed by the 

repose of Winter.

So I know what LIFE is.

 

And because I have perceived these things,

I know what GOD is.
