I loved this illustration from “The Ragamuffin Gospel” by Brennan Manning about finding the gift in every moment.
I didn’t think too much about it as I was reading it today, but it came back to my mind as I was trying to bounce my sleep-resistant baby to sleep this evening. I realized I was focusing on the “cliffs” and “tiger” of my today when the “strawberry” of my little guy’s head on resting snugly on my shoulder should be the focus of my attention.
What better way to find refreshment in your life than to search out the strawberries of blessing?
And…if you were hoping for some recipe for something delightfully strawberry…here are a few mouthwatering and pretty options… :)

I love the Ragamuffin gospel. It was a completely transformational book for me when I was in my twenties. What a lovely connection you made.
looooove all of Manning’s books. He has led me to experience God’s love like no other! thanks for the post :)
I may have to continue reading some more of his books! Thanks for visiting!
