During our first cherry season, a dear friend explained to me that fresh cherries needed to be soaked in salt water, so that you don’t eat any worms. (Don’t ask how many cherries we had eaten prior to this advice!) Sure enough, as the cherries sat in the warm, salt bath little worms began to make their way out of the fruit. YIKES!
It’s cherry season once again, and it feels like this season of lockdown has been a time of soaking for my heart and soul. God has shown me things that He wants to redeem and restore, areas of confession and repentance, and He’s even sewn seeds of things to come. I love that though the process is painful at times, He never leaves our side. We can soak in His love and grace and find healing.
