Lent Photo Day 46: Root. Part of what makes me me. #rethinkchurch #40days
This is a photo from my parents farm.
The dairy part of the farm is long gone - thanks to the Great Ice Storm of 2000/2001. (That was a hard storm).
Instead my folks raise horses and cattle.
I truly think that the values I learned and experiences that I had growing up on a farm have given me the roots to face life's challenges.
Roots are needed - without them, a plant withers and dies.
We need roots - because it helps us grow strong.
It keeps us from being blown over by the winds of life.
Roots make us who we are.
So today, I'm grateful for where I got my "start."
I may be "transplanted" to the "city" now, but the farm is forever part of my heritage and life.
Which, honestly, is not a bad thing.
