WEATHERED COUNTRY HAY BARN
Hay Barn, Summerfield, NC
These hot and dusty bad boys can teach a young man a great life lesson in the summertime--stay in school and store up your treasures between your ears!
This old storage barn and its contents reminds me of the parable Jesus taught of the rich man who had not learned the life lesson that “a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions”. When the country gentleman had a bumper crop his only thought was how to keep his hold on it, instead of sharing his great blessing with those in need. So he tore down his barns and built bigger barns to hold the great harvest. His plan was to lay back, eat, drink and be merry. But that night his life was demanded of him.
What a sad legacy. His great harvest was left for his heirs to divide and his legacy was that of greed and gathering for himself instead of gratitude and gracious sharing.
