God really does love His children and longs to give them good gifts. It will never cease to amaze me the ways that He chooses to reveal Himself in our lives. Today was pig loading day. Four of our eight pigs were scheduled to head into the locker plant via a big truck and trailer at 6:30 a.m.. Rob usually handles the loading of critters, but as the clock kept ticking and he had to get to work, my name was getting higher on the list.
When the truck finally pulled in the driveway the driver was not too happy as his morning hadn't gone so well. His comment: "I have faith that these pigs will load easy because they always do here." Rob replied, "That's what I prayed for, too." Would you believe they opened the gate and those four 250+ pound pigs walked single file right into the loading chute and up into the trailer? They shut the door and the driver handed over the cutting slip. Thanks, God, for answering our prayers yet again!
And another farm praise~ not a brag, but a praise, 'cause it's certainly not us. We have the most beautiful corn and soybeans growing in our fields this year. Many people have commented that they haven't seen nicer crops. Our secret? Prayer. We don't farm the land, my brother does, so we pray for him, too. It drives our farmer neighbor crazy to watch them grow so tall from across the road. So we pray for him, too. Thanks God!
