A sweet couple in our church who have a huge garden (we're talkin' huge) shared some of their harvest with us.

So I'm spending my time the next couple of days taking care of this bounty. Snapping and freezing beans (that box and two bags full), Grating and freezing zucchini for bread in the winter and enjoying the process of cooking up and serving the rest to my family.

I don't think they really have any idea how much they've blessed us. This winter when I take those veggies out of the freezer I will be thanking God for them. Times have been lean around here and this was truly an answer to prayer.

I pray that I can be a blessing to someone else today (and tomorrow). That I will answer the prompting of the Holy Spirit and do whatever it is - even if it seems simple. It may be huge to them!!!

See those sweet roses in the back? My lovely friend even put those in the box so that I could put them on the dinner table. So simple a gesture but it made my whole day.

Lord, help me to be a blessing today!!

congratulations, on that unexpected gift, have fun snapping....We were given about 50lbs of tomatoes, by a couple at church, and whenever we use them, i offer up a prayer for the people who shared their bounty with us. Except for the worms, they could have kept those, i wouldn't have minded a bit...
