A Season for Tractors
A time to open wide our doors in hospitality, and to be glad that today the house cleaners really did meet the standards of "company clean."
A time when we're glad the freezers are full and there's gas in the grill. When the kitchen is full of bustling girls whipping up potato packs, italian pasta salad, and bars for dessert to feed a hungry crew.
A time when I realize that there aren't enough matching plates in my menagerie of cast-off antique dishes to make a pretty table setting, only to realize that Uncle David won't mind anyway if he gets the chipped china; just pass the chocolate chip bars.
Another round of the corn planter in the dark brown soil; another smiling kid; another year of memories as we pray for God's blessing, once again, on our humble farmstead.
