Early in the summer, Ryan cut the hay on an acreage surrounded by subdivisions at the edge of Centerton, not too far from our farm. Since we're considering renting the pasture for cattle, I was asked if I would like to take a ride on the four wheeler to check fences all around the property. Sunset adventure rides with a dairy farmer are pretty irresistible!
It was worth all the adventure --blackberry briar scratches, chigger bites and a few tense moments when I wasn't sure the four wheeler would carry us out of the jungle of weeds above our heads--to see the beauty of an overgrown Arkansas meadow in early fall.
Underneath all these colorful weeds (I call them flowers), is a pasture of carpet thick grass.
When you compare this year to last year's drought--we are so blessed!
The earth is the Lord's and all it contains.
The world, and those who dwell in it.
