The crusts of my day

a crust of communion bread and wine goblet on a wooden table

I do enjoy the scrap ends of my days when I get to spend some time with God and enjoy the Bread of Life.

And the tempter came and said to him, If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.”

But he answered, It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” (Matthew 4:34 ESV)

Even a small portion of Bible reading and quiet prayer is refreshing and brings everything back closer to where I should be. Maybe I should be offering the best parts of myself/my days to God, but they are taken up with the mundane details of being faithful to the roles He has already placed me in. We do what we can.
