Some weeks ago my husband and I attended the farm sale of a family member. The sale was brought about by the death of our brother-in-law. The day and the people who attended gave me reason to reflect on the life and passion of a farmer and what this person brought to the lives of so many.
This was a many-generation family farming operation and some of the equipment reflected that past and the its hard work. A farmer really does feed the world with care and stewardship of all that God has entrusted to him. I honor the farmer of days past and the legacy they have left for others to carry forward. All that comes to us is a gift from God and we are entrusted with its stewardship.
