Bread comes up in a lot of conversation lately. Not all bread is created equal and apparently not all people do well eating bread and I know everyone has to find what is right for them. I am not taking issue with to gluten or not to gluten...
|Grandma's Bread Platter|
But coming upon Grandma's bread plate I found myself reflecting on how bread is one of the oldest foods in our world. Every culture has a variation. Ah, the bread that has been shared over time...The word companion comes from the Latin for com (with) and panis ( bread).
But we needn't be literal, bread has come to mean sustenance, and yours may not be made from grain...but the hope and the prayer remain that mankind may rightly win his bread and protect the ancient gifts of this earth while so doing. And that there be real bread enough for everyone.
....Give us this day our daily bread...
with best wishes,
