TBF 129 :: Thanksgiving on the Farm, Lots of Farming, and a Hard Lesson Learned

Thanksgiving :: Farm, Field, and Fireside :: Nov. 27, 1897

With corn so low how can I be thankful? So says an Illinoisan. With transportation so high what ground is there for me to do anything but grumble? So thinks the farmer of North Dakota. I have no wheat to sell at the high price, says the Iowan. Hog products are low, join in a chorus, the farmers of Iowa, Missouri, and other parts of the Northwest, while those in other States declare all that they have to sell brings small returns. 
Our answer is, be thankful for the prosperity of your neighbors, even if in another State; be thankful for health; you have no yellow fever. Be thankful for the frost which has at length arrived to kill the fever germs. Be thankful for a brave heart and faith in God. Take new courage and look forward and upward.

    Wishing you and yours a joyous Thanksgiving.

    Trisha Davis and her husband spoke at our church last month. My favorite quote of hers was that the blessing of hitting rock bottom is that you’re standing on a solid foundation.

    Hang in there…you’re gonna be greater.

    Wonderful podcast. I understand that dark hole moment. Also, I pray that God strengthens your family the remainder of this year and the next.
