On Soybean Prices Are Up: The countryside looks spiffy

It would be a mistake to assume that every farmer is rich, but there sure are a lot of acres in soybeans and corn in Northern Ohio, and prices for both of those commodities are high, I understand. The countryside south of Wakeman, Ohio, looks lush and park-like. Homes that were built originally 100 years ago look gentrified and spiffy. On the road east of the original 40 acres of Friendly Farm, where my grandparents lived and three of my cousins grew up, there are many spacious and new homes, owned not by farmers, but by commuters from Cleveland and vicinity who apparently want the ambiance of the country. Walk that road -- and some of the counsins at our reunion did -- and it still feels like a country road. -gw
The sons and daughters of the kingdom are like unto the real farmers. Through whichever state or country they pass they display self-sacrifice and sow divine seeds. From that seed harvests are produced. On this subject it is revealed in the glorious Gospel: When the pure seeds are scattered in the good ground heavenly blessing and benediction 17 is obtained. 1 I hope that you may become assisted and confirmed, and never lose courage in the promotion of the divine teachings. Day by day may you add to your effort, exertion, and magnanimity.
