Pictures - drought at my home..

Proverbs 3:5  Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

A couple of days ago, I wrote a post entitled Drought Awakening 2012  where I discussed why God sent a drought on the land in the days of Haggai the prophet. I would encourage you to check it out.
The drought has affected our small farm. We have had so many really hot days and not very much rain at all for the crops. In fact in the month of July we had less than an inch of rain here ( only 8/10 of an inch to be exact). So our crops have suffered a lot this year and the canola is only bringing in about half as much grain as we would take off the land on a normal year. So I decided to take a few pictures to show you what the drought has done to on our field etc. I took these pictures today, August 9, 2012
These first few pictures are taken on the canola stubble. We have already combined here. You will notice the dry cracks in each picture.

This is a frog sitting on the wheat stubble.

This picture shows you the deep cracks in even in a grassy spot.
And finally, here are two pictures of the river that runs by our property. It is presently very low as you can see.

It is so good in times like these to know the Lord and His care for us. He knows exactly what is happening and He will take care of His children! Praise God!
