I picked them as soon as the field opened knowing it would be a very hot day. They were ripe and ready to be taken.
As I filled my basket I heard several "pops" that the farmer sets off to scare birds away.
Could it be that God's graces are for just today? Unique spiritual gifts to be taken in, eaten strengthening us for the day's challenges?
And does God work to keep those gifts in perfect condition to give to us, as the farmer works to protect his fruit?
