Peach Picking Day

The day was brimming with typical summer pleasures: a bright blue sky with cotton ball clouds, fields of green, and peach ice cream.  The short orchard trees were adorned with perfectly round, golden and crimson balls of fruit.  Taking the large pail provided, we set out under the sunny smile of the sun to pick juicy peaches.

The day was what you could call a perfect sunny afternoon.

Each of us spilled with eagerness to pick the perfect peach.  Barely ripe, slightly firm, yet glowing with rich colors.  The heavier the peach the more juice your slice will hold.

Hidden beneath the shaded branches, unseen beauties slept silently and undisturbed, waiting to be found by the explorer willing enough to climb under the low arms.

I couldn’t help but take many pictures of the humble little treasures and their vivid colors.

The red bucket rapidly began to fill with peaches until the pile grew to the top.  Many little hands helped as well :D

The sweet scent of summer peaches made everyone barely able to resist taking a bite, but soon the towering bucket was in the trunk and we were driving back to the front of the orchard.  We had picked enough fruit to last for quite a while, all throughout the remaining days of summer at the least.

It was a wonderful day and my first day spent peach picking.  I still remember driving off into the sunset licking the melting peach icecream cone in my hand.

I hope you and your families have spent some of your summer days enjoying life in the great outdoors.

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

“For you did form my inward parts; You did knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I will praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalm 139:13-14

Watch this video from You Tube.  This twelve year-old girl addresses the issue of abortion perfectly.  This speech makes you really understand what abortion is doing.  It is amazing how this girl is so persuasive on the right to life, in only five minutes.

God knows everyone even if they are not born yet.  No matter how small, the baby IS human.
