I also wanted to write this week about our particular Wednesday discipline. I've mentioned before that Wednesday is Baking Day here. We've been talking to the girls about the concept of giving our first fruits to God and in that spirit we've been "tithing" on what we bake. The girls figure out what a tenth (or so) of our batch of cookies or bread is and then they choose the best (hard to do when you know you're giving it away) and decide who needs some extra love this week. So far they've chosen people from church and neighbours to share with. It's teaching all of us to hold loosely what we have, to be grateful for what we keep, and to think of others. It's an excellent practice, one I hope to continue into our summer garden.
Thank you, Lord, for your great bounty!
