TITLE: So Much Harvest

As I stood and looked over the sun splashed twenty five acres of land that would soon be home of our new church, I thought to myself, a new harvest is coming. It would not be long before the houses would start to be built and the families would come. The quietness of the farmland would soon be filled with the sounds of tractors, not plowing the dirt, but moving it. Hammers driving nails into studs and drywall replacing growing crops. There is change coming I thought, and we are going to be right smack dab in the middle of it. As the neighborhoods are constucted, and the landscape will change, I realize that there would be one famlier presence, in the midst of that change. Though it will look and appear new, the sense of comfort and assurence would be present. As the new starts, the old remains. The local church will be that solid foundation in a growing community. I looked out among the many empty acres and could see how God has placed our church to be that anchor of Faith. My eyes filled with tears as the truth touched my heart that God was going to use our church, will use my family to reach out to the new families and to share the Love of Christ with them. I see Jesus telling His disciples to be fisher of men and He has given us a larger net and placed our church in a place were we can have a bigger catch for His Glory. Twenty five acres of empty space, to be used to His Glory and touch the lives that will soon fill it. As the sun settled in the western sky sliding behind a cloud. It's rays filled the sky and I could picture God's Glory shining over the twenty five acres and Blessing the land for the coming harvest.

Nice. It would be great if this was broken into paragraphs, and you gave us more of a visual of those lovely acres and the souls to be harvested :)

Good story. Some paragraphs would have helped, also perhaps some insight on who was speaking.

I thought this was a very good story. Spacing between paragraphs makes it more readable for us. I enjoyed reading about the faith of this pastor, concering the future of the pasture. Very nice! God bless ya, littlelight
