As I brushed the mud off their skins, I thought about the pies they would fill and the evenings when the aroma of their baking would warm the evening kitchen. I laid them on the outdoor table and admired them. Each shape was slightly different from the others of the same variety, each one individually beautiful yet matching the others. Gratitude filled my soul.
The Great Creator fashioned these fruits from the soil of the earth and here they were given to me. Gracious gifts worthy of inexpressible gratitude and admiration.
