The Love of Home

A few words from Bill Fulton

Land that drinks in the rain often falling on it and that produces a crop useful to those for whom it is farmed receives the blessing of God.  Hebrews 6:7

A recent sign of why I like living in a rural community: In a city like Raleigh or Charlotte, lunchtime could involve a walk of several city blocks to a local “power-broker” hang-out, an office car pool to Chipotle, or maybe a “working lunch” in the conference room with an order delivered by DoorDash. As this photo shows, we “do lunch” a bit different here in Sampson County. This local farmer apparently drove straight from the field to grab a quick carry-out. 
And by the way, he left the engine running- days are getting shorter, so there’s no wastin’ time getting back to the fields. 

Or, to put another way: Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon, for you don’t know if profit will come from one activity or another—or maybe both. Ecclesiastes 11:6
