Blackberry Pickin’

We drive out to the patch and pick till our buckets are full or till we are a sweaty mess. Than we go home and have ice cream with blackberries, pancakes with blackberries, yogurt with blackberries, and plain blackberries for snack till they are all gone and we are throughly tiered of them. June rolls along again and we long for blackberries once more. Emma

My life is full of sorrow, hurt, and struggles, but filled with the joy and love Jesus brings. There are moments of struggle and moments of pure joy and laughter. This is life for me as it really is. We argue; Jesus gives us mercy and patience. Tears of sorrow run down our cheek; Jesus comforts us. We make mistakes; Jesus helps us learn and push through. Our bodies and souls are weak; Jesus gives us strength.
