Redemption

I grew up on a tobacco farm. I loved to go to the tobacco barn and climb the beams. I loved to watch the big kids hang the cut stalks. I loved to smell the leaves as they dried. I was just a kid. I did not know that that tobacco would contribute to my dad's cancer.

I still love to go to the tobacco barn. The beams are empty now, and the tobacco sticks will never again be used for harvest. But those sticks bring back memories—memories of my dad and my granddad and my childhood. They still hold the scent of the drying leaves, and they are worth redeeming.

Redemption is a theme in my life, something I learned on that farm. Broken things are worth mending. Old things are worth making new. Those tobacco sticks represent over 100 years of my family's history, and now there's new life from old wood.
