30 DAYS OF GRATITUDE
5. November 2013
5: I am grateful for education. I feel so blessed to be able to go to school and do what I love. Half the time it doesn’t even feel like school. I’m studying horticulture which means I get to learn about plants and visit farms and production sites. It’s dreamy. One day I hope to have a farm of my own and/or to work with one that helps the less fortunate. There is always more to learn and I look forward to growing in knowledge and learning from those who have gone before me.
The Clearing Rests In Song and Shade
by Wendell Berry
The clearing rests in song and shade
It is a creature made
By old light held in soil and leaf,
By human joy and grief,
By human work,
Fidelity of sight and stroke,
By rain, by water on
The parent stone.
We join our work to Heaven’s gift,
Our hope to what is left,
That field and woods at last agree
In an economy of widest worth.
High Heaven’s Kingdom come on earth.
O dust, arise!
