The Farmer and the Sabbath!

Blessed is anyone who does this, anyone who clings to it, observing the Sabbath, not profaning it, and abstaining from every evil deed. ~ Isaiah 56:2

Even the work of advocating for agriculture should take a rest in observance of advocating for God!  The Hands of a Farmer Blog will take a break on each Sunday in order to allow each of you to spend the time you would use reading our blog with your families, in quiet prayer,

I remember reading a story about my maternal great grandfather…that he was the type of man who would be out walking through the pasture and when he observed something particularly breathtaking, or had a thought he believed to be inspired by Divinity, he would remove his hat, drop to a knee, and thank God for his beautiful creation.

HOAF will take that same attitude.  We are so thankful for those of you who have viewed the blog, we are unbelievably thankful to those of you who have submitted your stories, and we look forward to telling the story of American Agriculture through your hands!

May the Blessing of the Lord be upon you all!

    Amen and God Bless, I think I too like the idea of taking the day of rest on Sunday to include a day of rest from my social media activies. Thanks for sharing an Idea that I should have already had.

  2. My grandfather used to say you are never so close to God as when you are alone on a tractor. It’s a great time to pray.
