In 1940, Milky Way Farm’s very own GALLAHADION won the Kentucky Derby. Just recently we came across the footage.
God said, “Let there be light”
He put me in a garden, and I spent my time lusting for what I didn’t have.
He asked me about my brother, and I refused to be his keeper.
He gave me a rainbow, and I looked for a pot of gold.
He offered me a land that flowed with milk and honey, but I was afraid of the neighbors.
He made me a merchant and asked me to share his portion of the profit with the widows and orphans. I kept it all for myself.
Then one day I felt a gentle hand anoint my eyes with moist clay.
The film fell from my eyes, and I “let there be light.”
And There Is Light
Start the meeting without me: I have a sunset to watch.
There is a woods waiting for me to make a path.
There’s a cup of cold water to be dipped and shared.
There is a light to be lit.
There is a song to be sung, a laugh to be shared,
a walk to be taken, a window to be opened,
a nail to be driven, a life to be lived, a friend to be hugged,
a meal to be shared, a race to be run…
There is “light to be let.”
He said, “Let there be light.”
And there is light.
