NOT FIRED! FIRED UP!

May 1, 2017

I am both blessed and humbled by any and all opportunities to be the Lord’s apprentice!  It saddens me though when some fear they must be worthy, and it really breaks my heart to meet those eager to profess to be His replacement. . .  thank you, Lord, for your unmerited favor!

HUNGRY FOR MORE THAN BREAD?

September 28, 2016

Daily Bread . . .

The Scent of Distraction

“There’s nothing I can do . . . “

Counting out cups of flour.

“How can I fix this mess I’m in . . . “

Measuring the salt,

Adding sugar.

“I’ve got nothing left . . . “

Sprinkling the yeast.

“It’s hopeless . . . “

Pounding the dough.

“I’m tired of feeling so . . . “

Noticing the scent filling the room.

“When will I ever . . . “

Absently placing the luscious loaves

On the counter.

“Hmmm . . .

Maybe a small slice . . .”

A little bit of butter  . . .

“Here, have one.  I made extra.”

Smiles.

Bread for today

He has plans for tomorrow . . .

“now, where was I?”

Off track

but now thankful!
