The Lesson at the Strawberry Patch: Waiting for God’s Provision 

In our rural district hunting, gathering, and gardening are popular for entertainment and economic value. We haven’t given hunting a fair shot yet, but with a garden plot in the backyard our thumbs are turning greener every year. We are learning the seasonal schedule for berry picking too. Last summer we were expecting our third child in June, a busy time of year for the farmer. To ease my anxiety my husband and I decided we would limit our planting to tomatoes and root vegetables. Since frozen strawberries supplied us all throughout the winter, I’d go picking at the local fruit farm, if possible. And although wild blueberries are free, they are tedious and time-consuming to pick; I would have to relinquish the tasty fruit in my oatmeal for a less frenzied summer and a new child (obviously better)!
