Our routine...bread day!

Just a quick peek into the ordinary of our life...


At least once a week...but usually twice (Monday and Thursday) I make bread.  
We don't buy bread from the store except for the occasional hot dog buns 
or pumpernickel rye-haven't figured that one out yet!)

Because we don't buy from the store, there are no preservatives (which is good) 
but it is ready for the chickens after day 3....it just doesn't last.

That makes me think of the bread that DOES last.
The bread that we must ALL have to have eternal life

It is fitting that today is called Maunday Thursday (or the Holy Thursday) and is considered the night that Jesus had His last supper with the disciples.  (Nissan 14).

John 6:48-51 NKJV  Emphasis mine
" I am the bread of life. 49/Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50/ This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. 51/ I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world."

I am not an eloquent writer, nor am I a very good "preacher/teacher".  I wish I had the words that are in my heart that I want to convey here.

What does this say to you?  What it says to me is also in the words of Jesus.  The words I rely on and am so humbly thankful for..everyone, it seems, knows John 3:16

16/ For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 

But it's verses 17 and 18 that give me the blessed assurance..

17/ For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved  18/He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only 
begotten Son of God."

How awesome is that?!?

And so as I can smell the delicious aroma of freshly baked bread, 
I am reminded of the "Living Bread"
