To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. A time to be born and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which has been planted.
One of my favorite Bible verses and words to live by is the Farmer’s Verse. Farmers have to be patient souls and work to keep that patience and faith at all times. A farmer must keep an open mind and understand that there is a time for everything and that God will always provide for him whether the farmer sees and understands God’s plans or not. After the drought this past summer I have grown an even bigger appreciation for those in agriculture communities and the industry because sometimes the “times” aren’t what we want. But all of us and especially the farmer need to remember, “That’s just part of it.”
Please keep all farming and ranching families in your thoughts and prayers as they begin the busy spring season of planting and bringing new life into their farms and ranches.
