There has been one place that continues to give me thousands of shining moments
throughout the 30 some years I have lived here in Culpeper,VA.
We have enjoyed their special cakes
for adoption parties
and ‘just because’ times.
From the time when Noelle was very young
she and Papa would go in the bakery
getting donut holes
and more donuts
and filled horns
So many delicious treats meet your eyes from the time you go in the door
it is just plain hard to decide.
on our way to the Farmers Market
we stopped in at the bakery.
Smiled at the friendly ladies waiting to serve us
and selected some donut holes.
it’s not so much what we do or where we go
it’s the people
the meaning behind the surface.
For a few seconds I saw a black curly hair little girl
and her Papa.
Yes, and then I saw Nana who used to enjoy frequenting the bakery
while she was here on earth.
And my brothers and sister. Times gone by. Shining moments.
Everything is a metaphor…had you noticed?
Our God is so Loving He gives us places of pleasure to enjoy.
Delicious treats that add enjoyment along the journey.
So while we dine today on freshly picked corn on the cob
and juicy homegrown tomatoes
my heart is also grateful for Knakal’s Bakery
and their continued fine service over so many many years.
But most of all to our Lord Who showers us with so much Love
in so many ways.
