Due to State COVID Mandates - CALL Before Attending Grange Events


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

By Barbara C. Kulish, CT State Grange Chaplain

  OCTOBER 5, 2013 --


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.
