I grew up in the midst of farmland.
I never really got it.
All I knew was that,
No matter which way the wind blew,
During spreading season,
The air was not so sweet.
As an adult,
I’ve gained a different perspective.
But the bumper sticker that reads,
“If you ate today, thank a farmer”
Says a lot.
From my perspective in the skies,
I see the beauty below,
The Patchwork Fields.
Such a tribute
To the Creator
And to the men and women
Who, despite modern conveniences,
Still work harder than most of us imagine.
Thank you, one and all,
For the example you set
The needs you supply.
And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19, ESV).
