The Final Straw

A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted. - Ecclesiastes 3:2 (DRB)

Hay there!

A seed was planted in the spring.

The seed sprouted.

The sprout grew up into a barley plant.

The barley plant's kernels were harvested in summer, leaving a dry stalk.

The stalk was cut and baled in autumn.

The bale was stored in a barn and later fed to cattle, for life-giving food during winter.

That barley plant had a purpose in every season from embryonic young beginning to dried-out end.

Lord, remind me that You have a purpose for every stage of my life.
