My heart aches as I look at our country and see the fear.  Fear and distrust towards those who are different than us. Those who may have a different religion, language, skin color, clothing, eat different foods, etc.  As I ponder on this I think of my Savior. What did he do? Did he eschew those who were different than him? No, he embraced them, ate with them, went out of his way to walk through their towns. Would he have built a wall? Made laws to close his borders to them? No, he would have washed their feet, invited them into his home, and listened to their stories. Fear breeds racism and division. In our country’s past fear led to internment camps, reservations, and unjust laws that separated families. We must not let fear rule our lives. Fear leads to rise of dictatorships and slavery. It leads to more government regulations and chips away at our constitution. We must open our eyes and see our fellow humans beings for what they truly are — God’s wonderful and diverse flower garden. Below is a poem that I wrote on April 24, 2014.  It’s about our world — God’s flower garden.  Enjoy

Sue's Nook

Beautiful, dainty, unique
Dancing in the gentle spring breeze
Each dressed in a different colored gown
Their individuality adding majestic beauty to God’s canvas
