Going To Go Get Wheat Seed!

Colorado mountains and streams...... mmmmmmm in my mind and I won't forget the daily readings my honey read us.

Today we are going to go buy our wheat. We started off yesterday and the tire on our truck blew out. Not fun. We had to come back home, because the place was closed. Today we are going to try again. This is such a special time of year. We are praying each step of the way that the Lord would help a good planting, a good stand on the wheat and protection for the winter until harvest next year. There is more to being a farmer then most think. It is labor intensive and long hours, but worth the type of living we like. Our boys say "we don't really have jobs". Ha! I like that one. I love working along side my husband. He has taught me so much about the word and farming. I feel like I get mini sermons everyday. I am so blessed to have a man that washes me in the word! I love the verse Ephesians 5:26 says, "to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word. Wow that is so powerful. I so want to live holy. He is a good man and I will love him forever!!!

Well off I go to get my wheat. It is neat to know that I feed people after we sell our wheat in the spring. Maybe you are one of those people. When you eat your bread think of me! Smile!



  1. Oh Linda you are so blessed to have a husband like that. Hang on to him!!

    Good luck with the wheat. Every time I eat my bread now I will think about where it comes from. I indeed hope it came from your farm. I will imagine that it did anyway. It will taste better.

    Thanks for sweet comments on my blog!

    I wish we lived closer, I would love to visit you at your farm!

    Love ya,

  2. Good Morning Linda!!!

    What a blessing indeed to have a honey like that :) Great photo.

    I pray that your harvest will be a bountiful one. we pray before each step too asking the Lord to bless if it's His will. How neat to be able to grow your own wheat to use for baking:)

    have a blessed day sweetie!


  3. If you ate a meal today, thank a farmer. If you switched on an electrical switch, drove a car or used a computer...thank a coal miner.
    Farmers and coal miners rarely receive the appreciate they deserve! So, thanks for being a wheat farmer...I say a prayer of thanksgiving for wheat farmers every time I make biscuits or a loaf of bread!
    Are you familiar with A Holy Experience? Great writing by a Canadian hog farmer's wife.


Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment. It is so appreciated and it makes me feel like I am making a new friend.

God Bless your day!
