Gratitude Year 9-Day 189: Today, I am grateful we can always pack a picnic.
Summer is a special time for food and fellowship. I love picnics. Why does food taste better coming out of a picnic basket?
When our kids got married, we packed a wedding night picnic basket, for each couple. It was fun to fill it with their favorites. Picnic baskets create a sense of warmth that has nothing to do with the temperature outside.
What is your favorite picnic food? A picnic basket full of food shows good planning. No one likes to go hungry. I am reminded that we are to share what we have with others. It is good stewardship with what we are given.
"Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon." -Isaiah 58:10
Pooh said "Nobody can be uncheered by a balloon." I think picnics are even cheerier than balloons.
Today, I am grateful we can always pack a picnic.
