Fómhar na Feirme
“Praise the Lord, Jerusalem;
He feeds you with the finest wheat”. (Psalm 147)
Let the wealthy and great
Roll in splendour and state
I envy them not, I declare it.
I eat my own lamb,
My chickens and ham,
I shear my own fleece and I wear it.
I have lawns, I have bowers,
I have fruit, I have flowers,
The lark is my morning alarmer.
So jolly boys now,
Here’s God speed the plough,
Long life and success to the Farmer.
“They go out, they go out full of tears,
Bearing seed for the sowing.
They come back, they come back with joyful shouts,
Bringing into the barns their harvested sheaves.” (Psalm 126)
Every day we make decisions. Some are straightfoward and done without much thought. More can be difficult especially when we are pulled in different directions. It is good advice not to rush into any important decision, but there always comes a point when we have to decide. Sometimes our decisions are not always the correct ones, but all we can do is our best and what we think is right at that particular moment. We ask God’s guidance and
direction with difficult and brave decisions.
