Made from Dried and fresh cut botanicals from our Amherst County, Virginia farm, I put this together as a freebie for one of my latest Etsy customers. It is currently on sale as a new items at my Etsy shop. A limited edition, meaning it is available for only a limited time for the Winter Season. May you enjoy the Winter Season that God has made!
A wonderful recipe for a lovely satisfying meal. For a quicker version, I have sweet and sour sauce on sale at my Etsy shop, seasoned rice mixes, and a bag of Sam's premade meatballs, and chopped peppers and pineapple and you've got a delicious meal! Enjoy!
My pastor shared this story Sunday and it was such an inspirational story....One we all can appreciate and will inspire you....
THE THANKSGIVING "SPECIAL" BOUQUET
Sandra felt as low as the heels of her Birkenstocks as she pushed against a November gust and the florist shop door. Her life had been easy, like spring breeze. Then in the fourth month of her second pregnancy, a minor automobile accident stole her ease.
During this Thanksgiving week she would have delivered a son. She grieved over her loss. As if that weren't enough, her husband's company threatened a transfer. Then her sister, whose holiday visit she coveted, called saying she could not come. What's worse, Sandra's friend infuriated her by suggesting her grief was a God-given path to maturity that would allow her to empathize with others who suffer.
"She has no idea what I'm feeling," thought Sandra with a shudder.
Thanksgiving? Thankful for what? She wondered. For a careless driver whose truck was hardly scratched when he rear-ended her? For an air bag that saved her life but took that of her child?
