The quiet life – April 12

The quiet life – April 12

what a beautiful day Saturday was with an opportunity for David and I to spend a day together. We packed 2 backpacks with the thermette and a flat pan for frying. Taking paper and matches, food to eat and off we headed to the river beach/bank close to the bridge across the river about 1 km from home. It was a great afternoon, eating, lazing about and looking at rocks before we came home after 4 hours away. Today we have lived quietly. .heard a prophetic message from Chuck Pierce passed on my George Probeck from Canada at present in lockdown in Spain, had time together focusing on the Lord’s supper from the gospels after singing songs about the blood. It was a good time for me to spend an hour alone as I have been focusing on what it means to come closer and take more time sitting in the Lord’s presence. We are not long back from collecting some horse mushrooms from the DOC paddock… a great size so that one with filling on top under the grill will be for our tea tonight. Such a wealth of goodness. I saw some mushrooms on the way home with a brown top and yellow spongy underneath and found that if I remove the sponge and stalk we can also eat these. Called Pine Boletes different from the orange and red with white spots that also grow under the pines these have gills unlike the sponge of the bolete.
