Empty Containers/Daily Bread

For several years, my husband and I have prayed the Lord's Prayer together
as part of our morning devotional time together.
This morning, reflecting on the words we had prayed, I remarked something to this effect:
"The words 'give us today our daily bread' have taken on a special meaning
for me over the past few days."

Before my knee replacement surgery, I made a large batch of our vegetable soup
and froze it in small quantities for us to eat during my recovery.
We've only eaten one meal of the vegetable soup!
As it is turning out, Daily Bread has been appearing in such a variety of forms.
One day - leftover rice and black beans from a church dinner.
I made at least two meals out of these, including some black bean chili.
Another day it was potato soup from a friend.
One day scalloped potatoes and ham delivered by my sister.
This morning - a few minutes after remarking about how the Father had indeed
provided our Daily Bread,
my husband returned from the post office with a card.  
Twenty-five dollars were enclosed with a note saying,  "Get some carry-out.  Our treat!"

Empty containers witness to the generosity of friends
and Daily Bread.
How blessed we are.

  2. You sound like things are going well...good! What a nice positive post for me to find this evening when I feel a little frazzled. Thanks!

  3. Hi Rebecca,
    These are the blessings that God brings out of our times of trial and testing. Sweet unexpected blessings from sometimes unexpected people as well. Wonderful the way the Lord is using his people to bless you during this time. Hope you are feeling better every day, and glad to hear the Lord is indeed giving you and your hubby your daily bread.............
    Thanks for visiting today and for your sweet comments.......always appreciated hon.
    Take care and don't over due.................lol

    Blessings, Nellie

  5. I'm so glad that God is providing for you through your recovery. Ain't He good? Oh yes He is! :)

  6. Beautiful illustration of God providing for us thru others. Marlynne

  7. God IS faithful....and it is always a comfort to receive blessings like this in a time of need.

  8. I experienced this first hand a few years ago - the provision of God is an amazing blessing however it arrives. I'm so glad you're being taken care of - wish I were closer. I'd bring you something ... it might be take-out, but my heart would definitely be attached to it. I hope you're mending swiftly and beautifully.
