Johnny Appleseed

Oh, the Lord is good to me
And so I thank the Lord
For giving me the things I need
The sun and the rain and the apple seed.
The Lord is good to me.

Here am I,
Clear blue sky,
Doing as I please
Humming with my feathered friends,
Buzzing with the bees

Every seed I sew
Will grow into a tree,
And one day there’ll be apples there,
For everyone in the world to share.
The Lord is good to me.

We spent last weekend pressing apples for cider and as we picked, halved, and pressed apples this grace came to mind.  I’m certainly thankful for the sun and the rain and the apple seeds that resulted in our gallons and gallons of apple juice.  It was a moment that reminded me once again that Kilowan is in my heart.  Although of course I’ve never picked apples at Kilowan, something as simple as this song can make me thankful for my time spent there.   -Larken
