So then neither is he that planteth anything, neither he that watereth; but God giveth the increase.
1 Corinthians 3:7
This Thanksgiving I pay homage to Heavenly Father, who provided the sun, rain, air, and soil which are the source of all we have. We fool ourselves into believing that we create what we have, that it is of our own doing. But we simply transform the elements that God has given us through intelligence and dominion he bestowed upon the human race. No matter what your culture, I hope you make room in your life for our Lord, particularly during this Holiday season. I am afraid that so many in this world ignore God or even disbelieve. But on a backyard farm through the seasons of the year, it is difficult, if not impossible to deny his higher power.
