When we moved to our home two years ago, one of the big perks of the property were the mature fruit trees.
Last year we didn’t get any fruit at all. We kept an eye on it to see when it would ripen (we had NO idea), but we missed the mark by a matter of hours.
We went out one evening and saw that things were ready to pick and decided to start picking the next morning. However, when we got out there in the morning, everything was gone!!!! The deer, squirrels, and who knows what else had devoured our fruit.
But this year we beat them to it!!!
Picking, processing, and eating the fruit lead to awesome conversations with the kids about God and how awesome he is and his provisions.
After all, it’s all about those little teachable moments, right?
