First Fruits

Summer is officially here! The temperatures are hot and the days long and lazy. On a walk around the block, the first fruits of the season could be observed. Apricots are ripening, apples are starting to grow bigger and turn a rosy red, and the blueberries are ripe and ready to eat. Cars of pickers line up along the road each morning as the blueberries are picked. It's time to enjoy the abundance of nature's harvest! Happy summer!

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.

James 3:17


  1. it *has* been here hot..but I think a cool down is in store..that is fine.
    great verse...a favorite..

  2. Oh I love the fruits of summer. Apricots, I am jealous. We just don't get good apricots here. This is a good year for growing. Our tomatoes are much further along than some years.

  3. I love the fruits and vegetables of summer also. It's one of things I look forward to each summer.

  4. Hi Friend! Indeed summer is upon us!! And with it fireworks, and cookouts, the beach, fresh fruits, much to enjoy!!

    Hope you are enjoying yours so far!!

    Love and hugs to you,

  5. Wise words in that verse!
    Your first fruits are very tasty looking and my mouth is watering!! There are so many things to be grateful for...even if it hot!! Today was perfect for
    a cool off period!

  6. I can't think of summer and not think of fresh fruit. Beautiful photo collage to celebrate them!
