This man, he is farmer, not writer
– but when he does this I am slain:
He is more than farmer, more than writer. He is like the poet-warriors of old.
“The man is a fighter, but when he is not fighting he is a farmer…” (David Malouf, Ransom p4).
Happy twenty years, Man of the Soil: “You are the most excellent of men.” Psalm 45:2 (NIV)
Thank you for fighting the good fight for us, for keeping the faith through every seedtime and harvest.
Happy twenty years, Author of that faith:
“I am the God of Bethel, where you… made a solemn vow to me.” Genesis 31:13 (HCSB)
Thank you both for your “name-changing, story-changing love” (Tullian Tchividjian, Unfashionable p153); for making my heart your home.
You are my home also.
You are my Abode.
