After the cherry festival we headed up to one of the many "pick your own" orchards in Emmett. We had so much fun and it seemed that in only a matter of minutes we had picked 10 pounds of cherries! The view is gorgeous from the foothills that the orchards are planted on.
As we were heading back home we passed another cherry orchard that had some jam and chocolate covered cherries for sale. We just had to stop! We've been eating cherries like crazy. I covered some with chocolate for my Bunco group and today I made some jam. My hands will be stained for a week from pitting all those cherries! And... we still have a HUGE bowl full! So later this week I think I will make a couple of pies.

“…so that they [older women] may encourage [or train] the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored [blasphemed or discredited].” Titus 2:3-5
"Cast your burden upon the Lord, and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken." Psalm 55:22
