God Will Provide ~ The Apple Edition

“Refresh me with apples”

Song of Solomon 2:5

My daughter and I had chicken salad sandwiches for lunch yesterday.  She makes awesome chicken salad.  A little nonfat Greek yogurt (instead of mayo, which she hates) diced red onion, sliced grapes, diced apple, sliced almonds, some lemon juice and garlic salt.  It’s a wonderful combination of textures and flavors. 

 

Unfortunately the apple was a little hard to come by.  We thought for a minute that we didn’t have any, and that we’d have to go without, but then I remembered there was a sad, shriveled one out in the garage fridge.  It was small and I had to peel it to get past the wrinkley skin, but there was perfectly good apple under there.  It wasn’t much, but it was something.  So I stood at the counter and cut in into cubes, hoping it would be enough, when all of a sudden I lifted my eyes and looked out the kitchen window.

 

Where I saw our fully-loaded apple tree smiling back at me.

 

I think if I forget I own something completely, I’m probably not being thankful enough.

 

Praising God for my apple tree today…
