Strawberry Jam

There is nothing like homemade jam. This past week my mom and I bought some strawberries at our local farm, and I made jam. For the first time. Well, I had made freezer jam before, but this was the 'real' stuff. lol.

I rinsed the berries, cut off the tops, mashed them with a potatoe masher, added the pectin and started boiling...then added the sugar...then poured into the jars. Canned them. And VOILA. *smiles* I love my jam.

Aren't they pretty?

Mmm...I enjoyed a nice glass of white wine from the vineyard we visited last weekend...alongside our extra box of fresh berries. *smiles*

How was your weekend everyone?

Just so you know - today's message at church was amazing. It was the first time I have been back since the seperation. That is 2 months folks. I needed me some praise and worship. I had never felt so moved. I was in tears most of the message. It was June..."Month of the Man". I learned alot. God truly spoke to me. I needed to have a good 2 hour talk with God today...while at the park. I had to make apologies to people in my life. Especially to one person in particular. That has hurt me alot...but I hadn't realized till this past couple of days...and then today...that I had hurt this person too. In many ways more than one. Wow. How could I have been so blind?

It was a good day. God is changing me. In a good way, for sure. *smiles*
