Daily Bread


“Give us this day our daily bread”. From Luke 11:3 and Matthew 6:11

What a joy and a simple pleasure it is to bake bread for my family. When the bread is rising by the warmth of the sun the house starts to smell of the wonder of bread. Then comes the kneading of the dough. Patiently kneading and some more waiting and rising in the sun. Then the baking where every nook and cranny of the house fills with the fresh smell of the bread baking in the oven. Last but not least the eating, and melting of butter on warm bread. Smiling faces and filled happy tummy’s.

How blessed are we to have our daily bread met in the physical and in the spiritual with God’s promise of taking care of our daily needs.
