Harvest Time in Illinois

Even though we stopped farming in cental Illinois in 1984 and moved to Arizona, my husband loves to hear how the harvest is going. When did they get in the fields? How is the yield? Is the weather holding out? What is the price of corn and soybeans? All that farmer talk that goes on in the local grain elevator....

One of our very dear friends back there sends us a package every year during this time. I look forward to receiving it as it is a reminder of those years when the fruits of the labor and God's greatness came together.

Her package arrived on Saturday and honestly, I could smell the corn dust
as I opened it 
For once, dust was a welcome smell...
