CSA share this week ~
10-12 ears of sweet corn
1 large yellow heirloom tomato
1 bag of variety heirloom tomatoes
1 bunch of swiss chard
1 garlic bulb
1 acorn squash
big bunch of dill (one of my fav's)
In spite of the dry weather here in the midwest we are still receiving ample produce in our share as you can see from the list above.
While taking my power walk today I walked in the grass around a parking lot near my home. All of the grass is dry and brown, but upon inspection I noticed the plantain, red clover and dandelion looked fine. They were green and could be used for food or medicine. It made me think of our Great Creator and how He has provided food even in the so called drought we are having. Most people think of these as weeds and bothersome but they were given as a gift to man. What a gracious heavenly Father we have. How He cares for us.
It is so easy to take the little things for granted. ...and the people in our lives. I have been trying to be in the moments I am given and be mindful of the many gifts I have ......life...my relationship with God....my husband.....my children....
....be all there....in each moment...be mindful...be thankful....
...time....you cannot get it back once it has passed.....
