Left over blueberries at the seminary.
Seems simple and insignificant, right? But in it I see a great unexpected blessing.
At least, for Annaleigh, anyway.
Mike gets paid bi-monthly. Which is not a complaint. Just a fact.
This fact has it's limitations. For example, our grocery shopping schedule.
Not only does it dictate when we go, but what we buy when we buy it.
Back to the blueberries, sort of.
They are one of Annaleigh's favorite foods. So, naturally, at each grocery shopping trip, they are a priority purchase. But also, naturally, are the blueberries' tendency to get eaten quickly once they belong to us. They barely last three days (and we even get the big container). My little girl could eat them until she's..umm..well..blue in the face.
So I was quite thrilled when a few of the seminary employees decided to share their leftover blueberries with anyone who would fancy a taste -- because they didn't want them to go bad.
You don't have to ask me twice...or Annaleigh.
It was our pleasure to "help" finish them off.
And since no one was around except our family, finish them off we did.
Blueberries: simple, seemingly insignificant, and unexpected.
But a blessing just the same.
Oh, and those ladies you see up in that picture.
They are a far cry from simple & insignificant.
They are actually one of God's greatest blessings to me...
...even more so than those leftover blueberries.
