he fed them well with the bread of heaven."
~ Psalm 105:40

"The hunger for love is a lot more difficult 
to remove than the hunger for bread." 
~ Mother Teresa ~

"How can a nation be called great if its bread tastes like Kleenex?"  ~ Julia Child ~

"All sorrows are less with bread."

"Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts."

A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse - and Thou
Beside me singing in the Wilderness -
And Wilderness is Paradise now."

"Truth is, I think, if God just gave us our daily bread, many of us would be angry. 'That's all you're going to give me. You're just going to give me enough to sustain me for today?

"Bread for myself is a material question.
Bread for my neighbor is a spiritual one."

    Hi Sandra, I enjoyed the quotes/photo and Bread Upon The Water by Gaither is a favorite of mine. Thank you for the prayers. Remembering each one on your list tonight.

  2. Hi Sandra, I like all your quotes and Scripture that you have shared. It really made me smile to stop by. We have had non stop rain and cold weather. We need the moisture but it is very cold. It is good to see you here. Have a wonderful week and I have enjoyed stopping by.Take care.

  3. Your quote by Chan above is, I think, one of the real keys to the Christian's life, but so few understand it. We're asked to trust God for tomorrow, all of it, and think only of today. And yet ... the same Jesus who told us to ask for bread for today only, also told us we would never hunger or thirst -- never, ever -- if we believe in him. So there's a guarantee for all the tomorrows too, which is just so odd. Thanks for all this.

  4. Julia Child had a good comment on bread. She was such a great cook.
    Hope your day was happy and restful. ~:)

  5. 🎶 And so the light became alive and manna became man. Eternity stepped into time so we could understand.🎶

  6. He IS the bread of LIFE ..

    {you're so kind to pray .. how can we pray for *you*?}

  8. Sandra, loved the picture of the bread in the oven. Your Sunday posts are always wonderful.


  9. "Bread for myself is a material question.

    Bread for my neighbor is a spiritual one."

  10. My mom is an 88 year old bread maker...she will love this.

  11. Fine quotes. Julia Child, Emerson and Omar Khayyam my favorites in that grouping.

  12. Hello dear Sandra! Great bread quotes! The bread tasting like Kleenex quote by Julia Child is hilarious!

  17. I very nearly missed this very important bunch of quotes on a primal theme! Thanks so much; Julia's comment is well taken, and makes me think some breadmaking would do me some good right now.
