The Blackberry Revelation, an amazing cobbler recipe, and a message to those looking for love

The other day I was picking blackberries with my oldest son, Cade.

As I was picking blackberries, I noticed ,as I have noticed during other blackberry picking seasons...that the ripest, most beautiful blackberries are always the hardest ones to get.

They are usually covered with the most prickly of thorns.

I began to mirror this to my Christian walk....

We often think that being a Christian is easy

That things of God are handed out

But sometimes we must strive to get the very best..

Sometimes we must work, if we want to produce the best and choicest fruit....

If we want the big, fat, juicy blackberry...sometimes we have to get scrapes and cuts from the thorns....the work, the sacrifices...of a Christian..the call to give...isn't always easy...but it is the most fulfilling....

Here is a blackberry recipe...the kind that mamma's good...


Preheat oven to 375

Melt l stick of butter in a 9x13 pan

Make a batter with:

1 cup flour

1 cup sugar

3/4 cup milk

2t.baking powder

Stir to your heart's content...and pour batter over melted butter


Drop the berries over the batter and bake for 30 minutes

Put in as many berries as you wish...the more the merrier...

At least 2-3 cups

Enjoy :)

These were his instructions to them: "The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields. Luke 10:2

If we don't go into the fields, will we produce a harvest?

I just had a thought in relation to purity...Waiting..patience. A message to those who are searching for a relationship and are getting impatient...

People are like blackberries.
Some, those with virtue, are the choice blackberries...
If we wait to find the right person in a relationship..and not pick whatever is the easiest..
the reward from the wait will be greater
the taste of the love will be sweeter
