Arbingdon, Virginia- Patience of a Farmer

 Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord's coming.  See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains.  You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord's coming is near.  Don't grumble against each other brothers, or you will be judged.  The Judge is standing at the door!

Brothers, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.  As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered.  You have heard of Job's perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about.  The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.

James 5:7-11 NIV

Old Red Barn Of Days Past

The Old Red Barn
by Ewina Reizer

The old red barn that's been vacant for years
is a reminder of days long past.
In its day it was filled with so much  life.
But like all things it didn't last.

Now as I ride by it I wonder why it stands?
Why was it not taken down?
If it was capable of having a face,
surely it would be wearing a frown.

Gone are the sounds and the smells it had.
Gone are the people too.
The hands that worked there everyday.
These are the memories it knew.

"Why am I standing all faded and worn?
Why don't they do away with me?
I'm tired.  I'm tilted. I can't stand straight.
Is that what they like to see?

Maybe I'm a reminder as people ride by
of how things use to be.
Maybe I still have a purpose to fill?
Nostalgia, when they look at me.

Old Georgia Barn

I love old barns and this one was located at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Georgia.
