Greg and I recently visited a unique store a few miles from our home in Southwest Virginia...
There's an area in the store where you can place an order for soup, made-to-order sandwiches, and salads. While waiting, you can look around and perhaps pick up some potato salad or small fruit pie to go with your order.
Also, you might want to check out their jellies, breads, desserts, Amish snacks, etc., ice cream, and bulk candies of all types. They also have kitchen items, home decor, toys, religious items, fresh vegetables, as well as many other things.
Greg and I enjoyed our sandwiches, and we took a couple of their desserts home with us-
The Dutch Pantry, 6891 W. Lee Highway, Rural Retreat, VA 24368
All of this made me think of how special and unique this experience was. Mennonites have a different way of life, and they express who they are in their own unique way. In this store, they are just living their lives, and they are sharing with the world who they are and what they do, and those that go there benefit from what they have to offer.
In the same way, each of us has something special to offer just by positively expressing our God-given talents, whatever those happen to be.
~ Don't "hide your light under a bushel." means not to hide your talents or abilities. This is from the Sermon on the Mount.
~ "Being different means you have something unique to offer to offer the world." -Unknown
We are all different expressions of God. We are all very special.

Thanks for visiting! Until Tuesday, February 14, 2023, Becky
