Today we made a Blessing Mix to take to our Keepers group tomorrow. You place a little of each item in a plastic bag and tie on the below meaning of each item.
Pretzels: Arms folded in prayer, a freedom sought by those who founded our country.
Candy Corn: The sacrifices of the Pilgrims' first winter. Food was so scarce that setters survived on just a few kernels of corn a day.
Nuts or seeds: Promise of a future harvest, one we will reap only if seeds are planted and tended with diligence.
Dried fruits: Harvest gifts from our bountiful land.
M&M's: Memories of those who came before us to lead us into a blessed future.
Hershey's Kiss: The love of family and friends that seetens our lives.
