Yesterday five of us took two short hikes in the Hill Country. One was to a moss covered grotto. The geology of the area was fascinating. It was also interesting how the plant life on the canyon rim was totally different from the plant life below under the ledges. The second hike was to a pool at the base of a waterfall. We had barbeque for a picnic by the pool. Then we climbed back behind the waterfall. I hope my pictures capture the beauty of the place.
Bread is such a big deal to Os. How many blogs have I written about not eating bread in a sandwich or substituting different flours in bread recipes? How many e-mails have I gotten from those of you who miss bread? Wheat bread makes us gain weight and makes our stomachs hurt, yet we yearn for it.
Today in church we sang a song. Part of the words were:
"This is my daily bread
Your very word spoken to me"
I thought about how when he was tempted Jesus quoted Moses saying, "Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God."
For this O, the best bread is not wheat to put in my mouth, but the Word of God to hide in my heart.
