Farmers & Heaven
“Do Farmers farm in Heaven?”
My young son asked me, so sad..
So many times he’d ridden on
The tractor with my Dad..
“Sure they do”, I told him as
His eyes turned to the sky.
“God gives us all a job to do
In Heaven when we die”.
“But, what do Farmers plant up there?”
He asked , so sure that I would know..
So I said “come sit, let’s talk a bit”
“about what farmers in Heaven grow..”
I told how there was so much food
with fields of flowers everywhere,
And how a farmer like his Grandpa
Was really needed there..
Then his eyes turned towards the window
At the tractor by the barn
And he said( as if I didn’t know)
“But he forgot his tractor Mom”
I smiled and tickled him a bit
Saying “Grandpa knows that too….
Heaven has a lot of tractors so..
He left his here for you.”
