"he has filled the hungry with good things"

The strawberries have arrived. Heather was out in the fields early the last two mornings picking with many other people. I worked in the bakery; I like it there, it smells good. Eating berries is not bad, though. They're very sweet and they're coming quickly and generously.

I hope everyone here can enjoy the richness, even luxury, of these good things, and not get overwhelmed by the increasing demands of the farm work. Or distracted by the desire to turn the harvest into income.

To truly taste warm bread out of the oven, or strawberries plucked from between the leaves, is to understand the meaning of "gift."
