Snow in the Vineyards
The vineyards in the summer time are glorious with their green leafy vines and red and green colored grapes. In the winter it is instead a vision of hope. Hoping for the spring to come with warmth to encourage the growth of the vines.
But there is also a peacefulness, a time for rest and reflection.
Looking at the vines now, there is a wonder about how the next year’s crop will fair. Will it be boutiful or will it be sparse?
Soon we will begin cutting away all of the lanky long old growth to encourage the new growth for another season, another year.
As farmers we will wait and trust. That the Lord will provide for us all that we need.
