What is a safe harvest?
A safe harvest is a productive harvest for farmers without any incident of crop failure or injury to the farmer, his/her workers, or the families involved.
Today, I pray that God would bless our farmers, and keep them safe, especially during harvest time. May their hours of labor continue to be productive and enjoyable on their farms. As they go about their business, may they remember to take the necessary precautions around heavy machinery, so that they can return home safely.
If they encounter unexpected repairs or delays, may God give them the necessary resources to pay for their repairs, and the wisdom to see themselves through any delays, so that they can finish their work.
As consumers, we appreciate how farmers put in long hours, deal with time limits, rain interruptions, and the possibility of frost delays to bring in their harvest.
Every farmer is uniquely gifted and a tremendous blessing to their family, the surrounding community, and consumers around the country.
So, may they stay safe as they work, get rest whenever they feel tired, and may God provide them with a bountiful harvest. Amen.
