Harvest is a literal part of my life - we live for harvest season. During harvest the land is beautiful and a beautiful crop symbolizes all the hard work the farmers have put in all season. A good crop means success and happiness! And of course it means I get to spend a little more time with the farmer because the harvest is complete and work is done until planting begins the following Spring.
"They sowed fields and planted vineyards that yielded a fruitful harvest" - Psalm 107:37
Farming has been a hard life for me to adjust to, but while it's been difficult, I thank God that I have the most dedicated farmer ever. I have never known anyone so dedicated and motivated to something they love so much - his mind is always churning on how to better his land. As the busy planting season is approaching, we pray, just as we do every year that we have a "fruitful harvest".
"The Lord will indeed give what is good and our land will yield its harvest" - Psalm 85:12
