Friday 56: Apple Avalanche

Today I'm reading a book called When You're Running on Empty by Cindi McMenamin.

Funny thing is that I'm full on into the harvest season with my summer garden.
So our cup is not empty but rather overflowing with apples!

Strolling through the fruit orchard, we found tons of Gala and Anna's apples waiting to be picked!

Today is our apple avalanche day! Can't wait for homemade applesauce, apple cake, etc.

Happy Friday everyone. Hope you will play along...

About the Book:

Product Description

Many Christian women give of themselves relentlessly. In the midst of their many responsibilities they get tired, yet there’s simply no time to stop and become refreshed. What can a woman do when she’s running on empty?
Cindi McMenamin shares how women can renew their energy and passion and press on. She touches upon every area of a woman’s life, offering practical advice on
  • knowing when to say no
  • serving to please God and not people
  • maintaining good health habits that recharge one’s energy
  • simplifying one’s priorities
  • taking time to rest and play
Every chapter concludes with a “Pick–Me–Up Prayer” designed to help women do all things in the Lord’s power and not their own.

***** stars!  A wellspring of motivation and encouragement. Great gift for women.
