Blessed are you O God, Creator of the Universe!
From you we have deep rich earth, spring showers
and warm light from a summer sun.
Blessed be God forever!
On our deck we have a vegetable garden planted in pots, which has been faithfully and lovingly tended by my husband, John. This spring I watched as small oval-shaped salad tomatoes began to appear. At first green, and then one day four turned red, and ripe enough to pick. At lunch I poked a fork into the red gem in my salad, and as I bit into the firm flesh juice burst forth in my mouth that was the most wonderful sweet tomato taste ever. How gracious is our God to provide us with food that nourishes our bodies and our souls! God is great!
