One tradition we have is getting bread from eh local bread shop for breakfast on Saturday morning.
It has become a treasured tradition as our weekends are often hectic. The Saturday breakfast is a chance to touch base, talk about the past week and go over weekend schedules.
This we aren't all together but we are still enjoying fresh made pastries. Having a beautiful place to eat adds to the flavor of the food. This morning's scones are from the local Farmer's Market and happen to be made by a family friend.
The Luther quote comes to mind as I spend time in the garden and caring for the yard. It is perhaps a small taste of what Adam and Eve did in caring for the Garden of Eden?
When looking for a source for the quote I was surprised to find that the Lutheran Witness #36 has a selection of letters, one of which includes this quote from 1530. "In spring he loves to direct her attention to the little points and tufts of life peeping everywhere from the brown earth or the bare branches Who he said that had never witnessed a springtime would have guessed two months since that these lifeless branches held concealed all that hidden power of life It will be thus with us at the resurrection God writes His Gospel not in the Bible alone but in trees and flowers and clouds and stars."
