"For I know the plans that I have for you,'declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11

Last weekend while we were visiting Utah, we traveled up the road apiece enjoying the countryside. We came across this old building with the rusted farm tool laying behind the log cabin. It stood out in stark contrast to the John Deere tractors and the new farm implements. Although the new equipment can probably get the job done in a more timely manner, there was something about this old tool that made me think of slower days. Hard work, none the less, but a time when the harvesting lasted long into the evening and when entire families pitched in to help. In today's world there are still many, many families who dedicate every waking moment to farming and provide us with grain and food; to you that work so hard I say thank you. Our country wouldn't be the same without you and we are grateful for all you do.
