Our family picks our own special favorites at Pine Farms Orchard. It’s only a short drive and we generally stay for coffee and an apple dessert from the little shop. I don’t know how many varieties of apples they grow at Pine Farms, but there are about 50 kinds of apples produced in Ontario.
I know God must appreciate apples for they are often mentioned in the Bible. Perhaps that’s the reason for the saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!”
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver. (Proverbs 25:11, KJV)
Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings. (Psalm 17:8, NIV)
Guard my teachings as the apple of your eye. (Proverbs 7:2b, NIV)
For whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye—( Zechariah 2:8 , NIV)
Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings (Psalm 17:8, NIV)
Prayer – Lord thank you for your wisdom, couched in language we can all understand. Amen
