Favorite Quote:
"Do not be anxious about anything but in every situation by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." Philippians 4:6

I am from small towns and family.
From church on Sunday, praising and loving,
To the shuffling of a deck of cards that fill up the table.
Nebraska to Colorado.

I am from where tractor rumbles fill my ears,
Combines stir up the fields,
Grain bins are working hard to collect corn,
And co-ops are busy with trucks and farmers.

I am from the land of subtle lakes and raging rivers,
From hiking to biking,
And tents to RV’s,
From good adventures and beautiful views.

I am from where you drive miles to find a good restaurant,
To one right in your backyard.
From where traffic is rare,
To traffic is everywhere.

I am from where mountains and croplands meet,
Where humid air meets snow in mid-air,
Where everyone knows everyone to always asking, “what’s your name?”

From hybrid cars to diesel trucks,
From home to home.

This poem is inspired by my two favorite places, Nebraska and Colorado and all the activities I enjoy doing there.
