Tuesday Morning Meditations
By Jan Austin Antonsson
Steely skies soar above the green,green grass of home.
The old tractor sits waiting by the barn,
wondering if its owner will return or
what its fate may be - the scrap heap?
the empty silo where the other farm has-beens
found their final repose?or usefulness in the field once more?
The farm is old, stretching back
through generations of
joy, pain, loss, madness and faith.
The land defines me in abundance,
sometimes in lack.
Clumps of dirt, rocks, a yard full of salad greens,
unmowed hay, walnut trees, the aging barn
speak to me of God's care, His grace,
His sovereignty, His election.
Like the tractor, the land, the weeds, the hay,
I await the Master's hand.
