After the harvest, Susanna and other workers pruned the apple trees in the Belmont Brothers’ orchard. Pruning helped the trees stay healthy and produce more fruit by allowing light to filter through the leaves.
“For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled”
—Colossians 1:19-21 KJV
