Rain and Baking

We have had a wind storm all day. The rain is coming now. I can’t write a post on computer but my phone works so I will try it this way.

I love baking. I love baking bread. There is something about baking bread that makes me so happy. Last year, I started realizing that maybe me and bread were going to part company. I really didn’t want that to happen. Almost a year later most of my health problems have gone away. It’s been almost a year, I still miss making bread. So I signed up at church to bake and cook food. I hope it helps me to just do a bit.

(This was our newly plowed pasture. I love all of the colors of the trees. The wind took most of those leaves today. )

At Bible study, We are in Exodus. We are learning about Passover. I keep thinking how Passover fits with the Christmas story. The baby born in the manger was the fulfillment of that first Passover when the Israelites left Egypt. Then I started thinking how many kings tried to stop the birth of baby boys in the Bible. There is Pharaoh in Exodus. In the New Testament, Herod wants to kill all baby boys two and under. All to stop God’s plan to save the world. To stop the plan of salvation.

When the angels appear to the shepherds in the fields they say to them, “Don’t be afraid! I bring good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior,Who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you:You will find a babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”

Just what I was thinking about tonight. I love how everything is a picture brought out in color for us to see. I hope this makes some kind of sense.

  1. Yes! It makes PERFECT sense! We are SO saved by our Savior. JOY!
    I love the look at that freshly plowed field. Dirt is pretty.
    Bread. I love bread. Bread is important. I love it too much and I want to eat too much of it, but it’s still so wonderful.
    Your nourishing offerings at Bible study are going to feed body and soul.


  2. Beautiful post. How grateful we are that our Heavenly Father’s plan was fulfilled!
    How grateful I am for the faith and obedience of Mary and Joseph.

    I love seeing your pictures! Now that I’ve visited and have seen your beautiful home for myself, it is so fun to see those pictures and know just where they were taken at đŸ™‚

    Happy that you get to bake and cook.
    You are an amazing baker!! It is truly a God-given talent that you have.
    I’m happy for you to have the opportunity to bake and I know how happy the recipients of your delicious baked goods will be!



  3. Of course it makes sense!

    Just read a bunch of your blog posts! lots of joy for you in kids and grand kids!

    Joseph is one of my heroes too, for a long time, since my early 20s, when I realized that he listened to God, obeyed God immediately and respected Mary too much to bring any (societal) shame on her (for what was not yet understood).

    God bless you!!!
