What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Isn't it wonderful to be eating from the garden before the heavier-hitting canning begins? I am loving this space of time. :)

Good luck today, Missus!
