Hello Farm Friends,
Honestly has it rained this much in years around here? I know it hasn't since 2006-2007 and I am thankful for it, since this quantity of rain should restore our ground storage levels of water, but at the same time this much water in a relatively short period of time most always spells flooding in one place or another around our area.
This much rain also leaves us unable to do much work outside, but I guess we were due for a break and a chance to restore some sort of "normal" to our lives…like getting the laundry put away. The rain has brought opportunities for greenhouse catalogs to arrive in the mail and for us to begin to dream and plan on rebuilding…what would we do the same?differently?bigger?smaller? I am thinking that the thing I want most is a guarantee that all future tornadoes will steer clear of whatever we build…but I guess that won't happen so maybe we should just spread them out all over the farm in various locations…no that won't work either. So I suppose we will do what we have always done…we will pray and plan and talk and write things on a yellow legal pad and throw things away and crunch numbers and crunch them again and finally come to some sort of agreement about what we need, can afford and is best for our family and farm. God always answers prayers…even when the answer is no. God always provides…even when it is not what you are looking for. Those statements hit me like eating mashed turnips when I was expecting cooked apples. God is good and He is perfect…even when the outcome is not perfect to me.
Hang in there folks…lots going on in everyone's lives…but we will all be stronger and better for it in the long run. Hold tight to God, He promises to never let us go…no matter what!
Psalm 126:5-6 Those who plant with tears will gather fruit with joy. He who goes out crying as he carries his seed will return with songs of joy as he brings much grain with him.
