Aug. 6: 82. a good week in great haying and bad weather formerly voiding. I could not but say. if a few days to gather our hay into cocks, and our sheaves into barns. be so sweet, oh what are those seasons god gives us to gather up his pearls, his graces. his Christ to be ours and to prepare ourselves as wheat, ripening us to be gathered into his granary.
