Back Home in Indiana

I always love when I can
 get home to check the crops on the farm.
We were home in July and drove by our land.
This year there is corn on the forty.
And a "crop" of Queen Anne's Lace
 in the ditch in front.
Think we would have enough
 for a cash crop.
Too bad this stuff makes my husband
 go into a sneezing fit 
or I would have a house filled
 with them in the summer.
Wheat is off on the field by the barn. 
Out buildings are looking a bit rough.
Dad always kept paint on.
That barn was built during the Civil War.
Expansive Indiana farmland.
Beans on the sixty this year.
Enough rain.
Good sun.
Thank you, Lord.

"Give thanks to the Lord, 
for he is good;
his love endures forever."
1 Chronicles 16:34

And as we leave we wave a goodbye-
knowing we aren't driving in Metro DC.
