The story of Ruth, (click above), is a great book for harvest-time. In it we read of Naomi’s devastation at losing her husband & sons, and her bitter reaction:
"Call me Mara (means bitterness), because the Almighty has made my life very bitter.
I went away full, but the LORD has brought me back empty.
Why call me Naomi?
The LORD has afflicted me; the Almighty has brought misfortune upon me."
“May (Boaz) be blessed of the LORD
who has not withdrawn his kindness to the living and to the dead.”
[Ruth 2:20 NASB]
