November 30 is National Mason Jar Day
God of creativity-
As we take a hold of the Mason Jars we have
we share our gratitude with you for the gifts they contain…
from the homemade jars of jam
and the pickles and pickles veggies,
to hot chocolate mixes
Thank you for your delicious world and the hands which handed us these gifts.
We give you thanks for the creative possibilities each jar provides…
From being a container for soap
to displaying candles and flowers
and live plants which thrive in these jars.
God, the opportunities are endless!
(And Pinterest inspires us more…)
So bless our pint-sized vessels and quart-sized containers filled with possibilities.
May they help us grow closer to you and our neighbors. May they nudge us to use our gifts to create a beautiful, tasty world.
Reminds me of Neruda’s “Ode to Common things” a favorite poem of mine.
