Every year, it seems spring has a way of sneaking in. One day we’re snuggled up around the fire listening to the snow blow and then bam the snow’s gone. The grass is getting greener. Cows are having calves. Tractors are rolling. It’s spring time.
Amidst our hectic, spring schedules, it can be easy to lose our focus. Then you see this sweet face.
All is right with the world, even for a split second. You trudge on.
Then you see new life popping out of the ground. You get a second wind.
And wiping the dirt from your brow, you look out at this beautiful sunset knowing you did everything you possibly could to reap a bountiful harvest in a few months.
You thank God for the opportunity to be stewards of the land and the ability to overcome any obstacles nature throws our way this spring.
So, on this National Agriculture Day, we’re going to celebrate the start to another season. Embracing the challenges. Hoping for the best.
Happy National Ag Day, friends!
