“Then Jesus declared, I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”

John 6:35

I baked my own bread today. Made that tomato soup as well, but the bread was a new experiment. I guess I would like to improve on the recipe, but for today this was a very satisfying winter meal. Bread is such a basic type of food. I grew up with bread twice a day. And soup with bread is a traditional Sunday meal. Simple, but strong.

Sundays are days of rest and reflection. I really needed that today. With my head spinning from all the meetings in the last week, I needed time to let it all sink in. Time to be alone and to let the conversations settle in my heart and mind. So today I am simply sharing a picture and inviting you to share my bread. Not the real ones, they are going by now, but my spiritual bread.

Today in church I was reminded of my true haven of rest. Jesus says He is the bread of life. Which is a metaphor of fulfilling a basic need for a lifetime. While I have to make choices that will impact the rest my life, that’s exactly the type of spiritual food that I need. Bread for life. Never hungry anymore. Never thirsty anymore.
