Yesterday’s post reminded me that I have not posted harvest prayers and litanies for a long time. This one I wrote several years ago (and there are links to more as well) is my favorite and I didn’t think I needed to write a new one, especially with the abundant harvest of apples I am still working to process.
It is harvest season here in the Pacific Northwest. The tomatoes are finally ripening, the beans have dried on the vine and the apples and pears are ready to be picked. As I walk out and see the miracle of what has come from tiny seeds my heart swells with gratitude at the wonder of how God provides. each year at this time I write reflections and prayers on the harvest season.
