God’s Gracious Provision

Romania is a country of physical beauty and also of abundant provision.  Nearly very household has a garden, and every family works hard during the growing season to store food for the long, cold winter.  It is a common sight to see families working in the garden.  It is an everyday task for them to gather and process garden produce for future use when the gardens are long since dormant.  Transylvania is the breadbasket of eastern Europe, and the garden produce is wonderful.This week we have worked hard making raspberry jam, apricot jam, black currant juice and rose petal jam.  A trip to the piac , pronounced pea – ach’, is a visual reminder of how God blesses us with such abundance.  This open air market is made up of many stalls where the farmers can sell their crops.  The quality and variety of foods is genuine “eye candy” to any foodie.  Thank you, God, for our daily bread and for your wonderful provision.
