51 I am that bread from heaven! Everyone who eats it will live forever. My flesh is the life-giving bread that I give to the people of this world.
In an effort to take control of what goes into our mouths, my husband and I are going back to eating simpler fare that we remember from our childhoods.
We are adopting healthier menus including more whole grains, less salt and I am even stepping up and making bread, without a bread machine.
There is a lot of patience in making bread. The oats and honey had to soak for an hour. The yeast 10 minutes, mixing another 10 and kneading another 20 minutes. Kneading is a fairly decent exercise! My arms knotted, burned and shook with the effort, and I fear may have shorted the process by a minute or two, or four.
The full process took about four hours, yet the pride and sense of accomplishment will last until it is time to make more next week!
This bread that will feed our bellies and reminded that the feeding of my soul is no less a process requiring proper ingredients, effort, patience and time. Christ is the Living Bread and it is my desire to daily partake of His offering of eternal life.
Making His praise glorious!
