"There's nothing like fresh vegetables"
- quoted my 11yo son this week
Both of my children love food and love to cook. This week they both literally begged me to go to the organic fruit and vegetable shop just down the road from where we are staying to get more peas in the pod.
Whilst we were in the shop the Lord reminded me that education is not all about reading, writing and arithmetic (which I sometimes get caught up in I must confess) but about life skills, about loving all aspects of life and the good things the Lord has provided us with like food.
I stood and watched my children (and me) drool over the red grapes and peas that we ate on the way home and I thanked Jesus for opening my eyes once again to the personalities He has bestowed upon my children.
Aren't moments like that precious, it just brings everything into perspective, it's like the Lord pulls up the ocean to allow me to see all the beauty hidden underneath.
Once again I'm Eternally Grateful!
We are heading to the Farmers Market this morning to stock up on fresh produce and my children will be blessed to cuddle some baby animals.
I wonder what you are all up to this weekend!
Enjoy, Laugh, Give!
