Relief from the heat

The Farmer is golfing with friends today...he deserves a day of worrying about nothing but chasing a little white ball around.

Woke up to 48 degrees outside! Opened all of the windows. Will regret the pollen and dust later, right now it is so nice to hear the birds. AJ got to go outside and play, his fav thing to do! It was s o nice to not have to worry about his asthma or the heat for once. We even went for a ride on the Ranger to see the cows.

There is a little more rain in the forecast which will be great for the beans. And my hay fever. Ugg this is the worst I have been in over 20 years. Can't wait for the frost, but we are praying for a late one, so that the crops have more time to mature. It's all in God's hands:

"So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is significant, but God, who keeps everything growing, is the one who matters." 1 Corinthians 3:7 ISV

I bought John a painting of this verse...reminds us of why we chose this way of life. You have to choose it for sure, because there is really nothing we can control. Not disease. Not wind. Surely not rain. We just raise our hands to Heaven and say, "Your will be done."
