Hand Picked

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love, He predestined us to be adopted as His sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will- to the praise of His glorious grace, which He has freely given us in the One He loves. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins..." (Ephesians 1:3-7)

We were looking for the perfect apples. It was a bit of slim pickings (we need to go earlier in the year next time). Some had cuts, or scrapes and there were many on the ground- trampled and bruised.

What a blessing that God has chosen and "picked" us to be His sons and daughters- bruises and all!!! He has chosen us and has adopted us as His children through Jesus Christ. He has freely given us grace. He has redeemed us and forgiven our sins through the blood of Jesus. Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!!!

I love this post. What words of wisdom God gave you concerning what He's done for us in comparison to the apples.
Great photos, especially Nicole peeking through the corn! Love her hair like that :)
