Like nourishing fruit waiting in jars,
I prepare thoughts and insights
through study and prayer,
ever increasing my understanding
through reflection.

Suddenly, the moment arrives
when the famished appear
needing counsel and teaching.

So with seeming ease,
the fruit is set before them,
the many hours of careful “canning”
never acknowledged.
