Some friends of ours, who live just down the road, brought us a 1/2 bushel (or so) of lovely upstate New York apples yesterday. They are absolutely lovely. This came on the heels of G1 (5) attempting to shoplift an apple from the grocery store the day before because we didn't have any money to buy food (we were there for WIC) and he really wanted apples. I had a heart-to-heart talk with him about how that's not ok, we can't take things that don't belong to us... yada yada. I think God's grace poured out on us via our friends and their apples. I really hope thru this that DS learns that God cares for us and provided us more apples than we'd maybe have been able to afford, but in His time. Here's a card that the kids and I made to give our friends at church tomorrow:
It says: "You two are sweet as pie..." I cut out the holes of the pie so that the apples that the kids drew would show thru.
Here's the inside of the card with all of their apples. I hope they like it!
