Not in Control

I think people who earn their livelihood through any kind of agricultural endeavor are to be admired for their faith whether they claim it or not. It takes a lot of work preparing soil, nurturing young plants, fighting disease and pests, careful harvesting, pruning and starting all over again. There are so many variables to be considered and options to be weighed that may affect the outcome. So you do your due diligence, make wise decisions, work hard and at the end of the day you stand and hope realizing you are not in control of everything. There is a Lord of the harvest and it all belongs to Him. Maybe that’s why being in and around nature can bring such a peace.
