God Made A Farmer

I watched most of the first half of the Super Bowl tonight.   I tried to watch the half-time show, but I had to change the channel.   I am not a prude, but I was saddened by the show.

Then, there was a bright, shining moment from Dodge.   Their commercial for their Ram trucks focused on the heart of America: the farmer.   There is no more noble profession than that of the men and women who toil and till the land, who raise the crops and livestock which feed our nation and the world.   In the midst of wondering what is to become of us as a people, there was this glimmer of hope in what built this nation and who still lies at the heart of what makes it great.

The commercial reminded me of my farming ancestors, of my life on the farm, and of those many times when our family would sit in the car, after we arrived home, waiting to hear the end of Paul Harvey's "The Rest of the Story."   God Bless the Farmer and God Bless America.
