To our friends scattered to and fro,
Hello from the beautiful Shenandoah Valley!
We are all thoroughly enjoying a day of rest in the midst of beautiful summer harvest.
Here are a few pics from my last several weeks.
We are experimenting with some soybeans in West Virginia… this is my Ben friend pulling the tanker for our spray unit over the mountain.
Riv exemplifies how we all feel about summertime wheat harvest ❤️
As with every wheat harvest, we stood around on pins and needles waiting for the crop to ripen… and once it did, we flew across the acres and are hoping to be done the first part of this week.
I keep thinking of the verses from 1 Cor 3 that says “So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.”
This years crop reminded us once again how much everything comes from God. This crop was a pretty big disappointment for some of our farmers. He gives, He takes, He provides. Blessed be His name.
Carry out in the combine cab with one of our grain haulers 😉
This crazy hectic whirlwind season leaves me exhausted, but so so thankful.
One more farm of soybeans to plant, and I’ll be ready to sit back and pray for rain ☺️
May you see God at work in your summertime too,
There’s full time boarders living at the cabin these days… They seem to think that if they are in charge of mosquito control, they don’t need to pay rent 🤷🏻♀️
Thoroughly enjoying being able to host at the pond this summer… let us know when you’re coming to visit 😉
