Pruning & Harvesting in the Vineyard

5 For, before the harvest, when the blossom is gone
and the flower becomes a ripening grape,
he will cut off the shoots with pruning knives,
and cut down and take away the spreading branches.
— Isaiah 18:5

  1. Does God have a right to do that? Ouch! That refractometer reminds me of the gemstones as Ezekiel saw God’s glory – resins and hard minerals underground are gems when the light can shine through and bring out their beauty. Increase my sweetness! Hey, what are you doing … ow!

    Thank you for showing us the process of what pruning looks like. I could sense God looking over my vine and inspecting with tender care what is best for me to thrive.
    And James, love the hat!
