Jesus answered them: “In all truth I tell you, it was not Moses who gave you bread from heaven,
it is my Father who gives you bread from heaven, the true bread;
for the bread of God is the bread which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.
I am the living bread which has come down from heaven.
Anyone who eats this bread will live for ever; and the bread that I shall give is my flesh,
for the life of the world.” John 6:32–33, 51
Together, Husband and I daily read and pray the Morning Office using this link. This morning I detected a smile on the face of the Father as the above verses appeared in "A Reading". You see, just before settling in my recliner to observe the Morning Office, I had layered the ingredients for a loaf of bread into our breadmaker! If nothing else creative happens today, I will have "created" a loaf of bread (that is, if our electricity remains reliable for the entire three-hour-forty-minutes of baking time).
I use a recipe my sister-in-law gave me that includes buttermilk powder and oatmeal. (Do YOU use a breadmaker/have a favorite recipe?)
Snow covers our world. I'm waiting for morning light
to see how the wind has rearranged it overnight.
An emergency order prohibits travel except for emergency vehicles until 6:00 this evening.
I was NOT one of the multitudes who effectively stripped
the grocery store shelves a couple of days ago.
We'll make do with what we have and feast on bread.
