A Sower of Seeds

A Sower of Seeds


in times past, I was a sower of seeds
yes, I used a hoe and I pulled weeds

up before daylight
and toiled until night

in the rain or blazing sun
still the work had to be done

crops of tobacco, beans and corn
at times, my spirit was torn

more than just the crops grew
though I was weak, my spirit grew, too

today, I'm still a sower of seeds
seeds of encouragement for a soul's needs

seeds of kindness for an aching heart
seeds of hope for a soul torn apart

as long as there's life and breath in me
I'll continue to be
a sower of seeds for Thee

2 Corinthians 9:6
remember this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
