Sunday’s Bible Journaling

Judges 9:10

Today’s Words of Faith -Comes from the Book of Judges: 
is the seventh book of the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Old Testament. In the narrative of the Hebrew Bible, it covers the time between the conquest described in the Book of Joshua and the establishment of a kingdom in the Books of Samuel, during which Biblical judges served as temporary leaders

“Next, the trees said to the fig tree, ‘Come and be our king.'”

My drawing today is the fig Leaf & figs. Colored with paint and pastels in green and browns. As I read this passage I thought about my family  fig tree and my Dad. Let me share my story : 

Figs trees and figs  are very special to me in my yard there is a fig tree that is very old that still bears fruit every year.  And my Dad whose in his 80’s picks the ripe fruit and cans it to give away to friend and family. ,Like this fruit bearing tree my Dad fruit is Gods  love ,prays and blessing to all he meets. . I I am blessed to have both  the fig tree and my Dad still part of my life .Lisa

Thursday Food Post!! Louisiana Figs

Figs are one of the most widely planted fruit trees in home landscapes in Louisiana. With little care, they will produce crops of juicy, sweet figs every July. The fig, Ficus carica, is native to Asia Minor and is thought to be one of the earliest fruit trees cultivated by humans.

It’s all about figs – my Dad is 87 years old and when the figs come in -he cleans,cut and preserves quarts of figs. Usually the ripen around July 4th holiday and last only a short time. Every year he says -this is my last year – but people start asking for them and he starts making preserves to give away. But some fogs finds themselves in other places :
