It’s cold outside. The snow is relentless. A few days ago, I slipped on the ice and fell right on my…
Knee. Next time perhaps I should avoid the ice. Oh wait. It’s everywhere. Unavoidable.
It’s easy to complain and whine about winter right about now, isn’t it? I’m a little bit tired of being cold and cooped up. We could all use a little sunshine right about now.
But, last week after my Azure Standard order came in, I realized how BLESSED we are. Even though we’re in the middle of winter, with no fruits or vegetables growing around us…we can still get our hands on fresh produce! Yay for other countries (and other parts of this country) with warmer climates and fruit bearing trees! Yay for trucks that can bring them to Coldville, Nebraska. Yay for Azure Standard that makes the opportunity for fresh, delicious organic produce possible!!
I ordered bunches of organic apples and pears, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, avocados and onions. At the store I got oranges, clementines, a pineapple and bananas. A friend brought over more oranges, apples, carrots and grapes.
The beautiful, fresh, healthy produce reminded me once again of God’s goodness and provision. Suddenly I didn’t feel so sick of winter anymore. I felt blessed and taken care of.
I had to create not one, but two bowls of the pretty fruit.
It just looks like a little bit of spring-time on my countertop now!
