Rich Harvest

Family is a field to grow in.

Where children grow up

and parents grow patient.

Where mothers grow in maturity

and fathers grow in forgiveness.

Where sons grow in self-control

and daughters in discernment.

And this is what He (God) means —

For us to stretch and dig down and reach out

and for family to grow us full in the faith.

I love these words. They are not mine.  They flow from a woman who lives on a farm, who writes what she sees, and sees what she writes.  The eyes and hands that once were her own have been given back to the One who formed them.  I offer these words as evidence.  g. bullock
