We stopped at this Cracker Barrel for supper, and it was just such a comforting feeling to come into the warm room with its crackling fire and a hostess offering samples of apple crisp. Even in the midst of recently remembered terror and hatred, we were so blessed by the simple comfort of a warm fire and down-home food and a welcoming smile. If I recall correctly, we ordered from the breakfast menu. We were tired and hungry and cold and the idea of breakfast food sounded just right.
I picked up this free booklet at Cracker Barrel that evening and have kept it ever since as a reminder. I came across it with my other autumn things one year and decided to display it. I have displayed it most years in the fall ever since. Here are some of the delights from its pages:
|How true this is!|
|Lovely quilt as background for a fun poem|
|Some of the items had a Thanksgiving flavor.|
Isn't it such a blessing how God encourages our hearts in simple ways every day, even in the darkest of circumstances? We just need to keep our eyes open for the blessings!
