A is for apples. The blossoms in the spring … the tasty fruit in the fall, apples bless us all. They’re great as a sauce, a butter, a pie, or a dumpling. Why, they even keep the doctor away, providing you eat on a day.
However, as wonderful as apples are, don’t be conceived. They were not the fruit that caused Eve to go astray. Personally, I believe that was a special, delectable chocolate fruit. But I won’t go into that theory now since I can’t make it tie in with the letter A.
Nevertheless, I am thankful for apples. Not only are the beautiful and delicious, David used apples—well the apple of God’s eye—as a plea to seek God’s protection.
“Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings” (Psalms 17:8).
That’s why I’m thankful for apples, they remind me that God cares for me and protects me as He protects His own eyes.
How about you? What are you thankful for that begins with the letter A?
See you in a twinkling,
