My Neck of the Woods: Barn and Silo

Bonjour from Campagne Maison

This barn and silo sit at the other end of the pasture from the horse stable that was in last Friday's post. It appears smaller in this picture than it really is. Both buildings are grey with red metal roofs and both have the cupolas. They are such a treat to see as you pass by them.

Every time I see a silo I am reminded of the Bible scripture account when Joseph was interpreting those dreams of Pharaoh, the one about the seven years of plenty and seven years of famine. Pharoah put Joseph in charge of all the land of Egypt and Joseph carried out the dream according to what God has said. He ordered all the food to be stored up for the seven years of plenty so Egypt would have food during the seven years of famine. And all countries had to come to Egypt to buy corn. Eventually Joseph's own brothers came and later his father. That scripture has several lessons on life. Genesis 41

Have a great weekend. Please leave a comment if you stopped by the farmhouse today. We love having company!

Au revoir

Hi Jacque,

Great picture. It looks so peaceful there.

Yesterday as I was driving, I was listening to a CD that had many references to the years in Egypt. We are on the same wavelength.

Getting ready to run out for the day but wanted to stop by and say "hi".
