In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

I went shopping today at the grocery store and look!!! A you don't see a John Deere at your market. The things you see in a rural community. Oh yes..this is one of the smaller ones. Sometimes while driving home you will see some
that your car could fit under. It has been a real learning experience living here in Minnesota. I should have quite a bit of knowledge next time I visit back home and some interesting stories to tell.
Strawberries were on sale and very good. I don't have a patch in the garden yet. I tried some when I first arrived here but they didn't do very well with the weather and critters who also like berries. There won't be a strawberry-rhubarb pie, just fresh berries this time.

That sounds good to me! That tractor's a whopper huh?

I know what you mean. When we moved to the heart of Illinois from Dallas Texas, I don't think I'd ever seen much farm equipment. We live in an agricultural district now. I've gotten behind some of these things on a farm road that I could just about drive my car under. Some of them look like they are straight out of Star Wars. We love living here.

Bet I do -grin-! I'm headed to do some shopping today...need a lemon for a lemon chess pie and will dash by the grocery when I go to the Y to swim and work out.
Thanks for visiting and following Thistle Cove Farm; I've gladly returned the compliment.
