Just as Jesus broke bread with his disciples, I enjoy sharing bread with others as a symbol of Christ’s love for us.
Wednesday is coined ‘Bread Day’ at our house. It’s a process that takes a couple days, but I actually bake the bread on Wednesday afternoons each week. I make about 12 loaves of bread, and we usually keep a loaf because I always sneak a slice right after it comes out of the oven.
I like to take it to friends when they are sick or going through a hard time, but I also give loaves to friends and co-workers as a ‘thank you’ or ‘just because.’ I love seeing the reaction the first time I give a loaf of bread to someone. They think, ‘Why is she giving me this?’
It makes me happy to see that others enjoy it so much, and how such a small act of love can brighten someone’s day.
