Berry Fulfilling

“Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10

This past week was C-R-A-Z-Y!! I’ll try to catch up. I promise.

Yesterday we got up early and drove 40 miles or so to go pick strawberries at a U-Pick berry farm. The kids and hub had already been there a couple of times for blueberries, but this was our first strawberry outing.

The day was heavy overcast and threatening rain. Every now and then a hole would appear in the clouds and this would happen:

My 7YO noticed and said, “That’s the coolest thing I’ve ever seen! I think it’s the Holy Spirit!” He was also convinced that a battle was going on because when you throw someone on the ground the dirt puffs up and makes a cloud, so that must be what was causing all the clouds.

My husband and I just grinned and listened in the front seat while he was contemplating all this in the back.

We picked 16 pounds of strawberries, which will feed our bodies for at least a week, but it was the observation of a child that fed our spirits.

“Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.” Psalm 51:12
