Yes, God loves John Deere


I guess I’d better explain! One day, feeling excessively sad, I searched out Psalm 68:5.

A father of the fatherless and a judge and protector of the widows is God in His holy habitation (AMP).  Now who wouldn’t find that comforting?

But then I read on, through this Psalm I’d read so many times.

Psalm 68:13b says that the wings of a dove are covered with silver. The dove part caught my attention. ‘On the Wings of a Snow White Dove’ was one of my late husband Ron’s favorite songs. Then I read the next bit of the verse…’its pinions excessively green with gold.’  And oh, how Ron did love John Deere equipment!

God soothed my aching heart with just a couple of his words. Whether it is direction we need or substance or just a warm hug of words, we can count on him to provide it.

Prayer- Thank you, God, for always meeting us right where we are. Amen.

Happy Birthday Ronald
