Hot and Dry with more Hot and Dry

Hello, are you hot and dry in your area too?  It is so hot and dry here that Danny is mowing down hay for his brother this morning and instead of letting it lay for a day or two to dry out, they are going to bale today too. About everyone we have talked with tells us that they are getting  less hay this year too...it  was a very mild winter and very dry Spring and early summer so we are not getting the grass.  We usually mow our yard weekly but this year has been a different story...I think we have mowed it 3 times, it is just brown and crunchy now.

all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and  lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke  is easy and My burden is light."  Matthew 11:28-30

Danny is mowing and the hay that falls is dry and partially brown already.

clover that has already dried.

I awoke this morning feeling so close to God.  I am praying for rain but I know in God's time, he will drench the sweet earth with his rain.   He gives us bad times so we will know the good times and so he will give us a drought so we can appreciate the wet times.  I know God loves me so much that He gave His Son to shed His red blood on the Cross for me and you.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.  And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the father through him.
Colossians 3:16-17


  1. We don't have crops at our farm, but the weather is so hot and dry that there are wild fire warnings in our area. Wheat fields can catch on fire so quickly in heat like this.

  2. I think about everyone is dry and hot this year except for the few that are wet and HOT! Keep cool.

  3. I just love your blog!
    I might be interested in your fiber's. I just started spinning and LOVE IT!!!
    So rewarding.
