When Your Baby is the Harvest

Have you had those long, exhausting days when you just want to walk in the door and pass out in your bed? The kids are fighting, the family is hungry, the laundry needs washing, the sink is overflowing with dirty dishes, and you just need a break?

Yeah, me too.

This time of year is our harvest time and it’s so busy it kind of passes in a blur. Homeschooling? meh. Cleaning? meh. Eating? We should probably make that a priority…

We’ll get back in a groove soon but for now, it’s 90 to nothing, hauling in the corn as fast as we can, praying the storms stay away long enough to bring in the crop. We put our time in plowing, planting, fertilizing, cultivating, and now we just wait. The crop is our baby. We’ve poured blood, sweat, and tears into it, waiting and praying for a good harvest.

Know what I’m talking about? Do you have a “baby” like that? Maybe your job, or a project, or your children? When you give your absolute best effort and then you wait, pray, and trust in the Lord?

If you’ve been giving your all to your “baby” and you are worn out, you are in good company. Don’t give up. Don’t doubt your efforts. Keep going. Keep trying. Keep praying. And trust the Lord that no matter the outcome, He knew it all along.



Because you’re probably as tired as I am, a few friends and I put this giveaway together for you so you could be “babied” or “pampered” a bit. Who doesn’t love coming home to find a box of goodies waiting on their steps for them? This will be like an early Christmas for the giveaway winner with each package coming separately. Woohoo!
