One of the items on Ann's list this weekend was a blessing challenge, daring you to tuck a little something in a brown paper bag, tagged with this printable and bless someone with a simple gift. Her suggestions: a candle, popcorn, one cookie, a love letter, a book, a caramel apple, a smiley face, a leaf, a pen, a heart shaped stone, a gratitude journal, anything! And to "be part of the revolution giving Him thanks and glory!" I was game! I had one last zucchini from our garden and decided to bake up a few loaves of zucchini bread to share with our wonderful neighbors who are blessings to us year round.
It was a perfect day for baking. The first weekend chill of fall had set in and it was too rainy to be outdoors hiking in the foliage or going on a hayride at any of the local apple festivals. So I broke out my loaf pans, preheated the oven, and baked up some delicious bread blessings. The house soon smelled of heavenly fragrant cinnamon and vanilla. When the loaves were done and cooled on wire racks, I wrapped them up, tucked them in bags with the tags I had printed out and sent Michael off to deliver our gifts of thanks. We do have the very best neighbors and I'm glad I had the opportunity to give back some of the love and thoughtfulness they've so generously given us.
