First of all, let me assure you that these are not “rural tall tales”. They are factual accounts of exciting, random and sometimes dangerous occurrences on our family farm! It is never dull around here!
Many people have visions of Little House on the Prairie or some other aged fantasy of life on a farm. Rural agriculture has changed quit a bit in the last 20 even just 10 years! When our youngest daughter comes home to visit she is amazed by the ever evolving technology and the extra equipment required for the farm to run effectively. It has transformed even since she lived at home less than ten years ago!
However, we may still sound like bumpkins to some and for that I am thankful. Thankful for the stars at night, the beauty of a sunset in autumn and daily reliance on the Lord’s provision through rain, sunshine and His protection on my husband’s life. Farming and ranching is #4 on America’s Top 10 Most Dangerous Jobs list according to CNN Money. Needless to say, I am on my knees often!
I hope these stories make you laugh, but also I hope a few at least bring about an appreciation for who we are and what we do.
