The giving side of things

In a far field a farmer drives his tractor across the hard, barren soil, dust plume trailing behind.

How quickly the winter comes, the whole world brown and withered, not a sign of spring in sight.

The emphasis of course is on the thanks this season, but I wonder if it shouldn’t be on the giving, since only when we are empty and exposed can we know the blessing of the bounty.

Every harvest starts with a desolate wild.

Spring comes like hope, in the nick of time.

And thanks always follows the giving.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving, dear reader.

“But I will rejoice even if I lose my life, pouring it out like a liquid offering to God, just like your faithful service is an offering to God. And I want all of you to share that joy…” ~Philippians 2:17 NLT
