Food for the Soul

Happiness lies in the absorption in some vocation
which satisfies the soul.
 Henry Ward Beecher

 Applesauce for winter suppers, 
Spring lunches and summer breakfasts
Preserved for days without plenty
A piece of harvest goodness stowed away to enjoy later.
A loaf of bread warm and spicy from the oven
These are pleasures not only in the eating of them,
Also in the preparing of them.
 I hold the bounty of summer again
 I feel the sunlight and the sweetness of the breeze again
Experience the joys of friendship, family, 
The goodness of God's provision
I find satisfaction.
