The Diligent Farmer

The Diligent Farmer

Gnarled are the farmer's hands
calloused from his toil,
diligently sowing seed
in cultivated soil.

Drought and floods come
and test his endurance,
but he practices patience
and continues with assurance.

Sometimes he's exhausted
but his work is not in vain;
he knows that perseverance
will soon result in gain.

Let's emulate the farmer
pressing on come what may;
seeds we sow in God's soil
will abound on harvest day!

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
