Broken then Blessed

In honor of this Sabbath, I'd like to repeat something I heard on an Oprah Winfrey show, today.  She was interviewing T.D. Jakes and he was talking about the parable of the two loaves and five fishes and he made a point about that story that I had not heard before.

He mentions that Jesus broke the bread and then blessed it.  Then, there was enough to feed the crowds.  Let me repeat, the bread was broken and then blessed and there was enough to feed the multitudes. 

This point gives the gift of hope.  I think hope is a marvelous gift. 

Today, I say a prayer of thanksgiving for this day and for hope.  I pray for the recovery of our addicted loved ones and for you who take care of them.  And, I say a prayer for Henry.
