The Perfect Loaf

So... I made bread a couple of days ago.  A friend and I attended a bread making class 26 years ago and I still make the same easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy recipe called "The Perfect Loaf" that we learned to make that day.  It is fool proof.  It's important that you know this because I'm not really a bread maker except when I make this perfect recipe.

I can measure out the stuff and stir it together in a bowl...

I can dump out the mess and knead it fairly well...

I can let it rise in my oven...

And I can bake it up golden brown.

But my bread...

even though it is a perfect loaf and is tremendously good for you because it's packed with nutrition and nuts and raisins...

is not what the Bible would call the 

                                          Bread of Life.

Jesus called Himself the Bread of Life and invites us all to partake and be satisfied.

I love this picture.

This squirrel is feasting on our left-over communion bread.  I bet she couldn't believe her good fortune to have found all this bread hanging out on this feeder!  It was a good day for squirrels.

Today, communion was served all over the world as it was World Communion Day.

People heard the words of Jesus and were invited to "Take and eat.  This is My body given for you; do this in remembrance of Me."  

We all need this kind of Bread, the Bread of Life.

We all need Jesus; He is easily found and is just what I/we need.

He is the "Perfect Loaf"offered to all of us.

Take and eat.
