Yes....he did...he had to MOW down his wheat. It was a rather sad day I thought....never knew it to be so bad that my daddy had to mow wheat...that's just wrong. All spring JJ kept saying he couldn't wait for wheat harvest because he's been looking forward to driving with Papa John in the combine..specifically with the lights on in the dark!! That's been his plan all winter and spring. But alas, we showed up one day to hang out and visit and low and behold there was papa...in the wheat field...but NOT with a combine. But rather Papa had the tractor and MOWER. I'm still floored. But JJ and Hannalee at least got to drive with him and mow. JJ kept working with Papa and then me and Hannalee and Meme got on the Gator!! Hannalee is a pretty good driver! She can drive over the cattle guards and all!!
Psalm 147:14 "He makes peace in your borders; he satisfies you with the finest of wheat."
So this year's crop was NOT the finest of wheat....so I really thought about THIS Scripture...
Acts 27:38 "When they had eaten enough, they began to lighten the ship by throwing out the wheat into the sea..." Might as well have done that...at least it's hay! :)
Love you daddy!!
