Our Daily Bread

Whenever I see this Norman Rockwell picture "Freedom from Want" it always makes me think of Thanksgiving around the family table. But in truth, there is more significance in this picture. At least in our country, we truly have freedom from want. We are so blessed to live in a country where you can find almost any kind of food at almost any time of year.

Today I am thankful for the abundance of food that is so readily available and conveniently located in our area, whether from a local grocery store, a farm or at a fresh market.

"Give us this day our daily bread..." Matthew 6:11

Hello, my friend,
I love that painting, too. And yes, we have so much abundance here in our wonderful country. It would be easy to take it all for granted. Thank you again for the reminder to be truly thankful for God's abundance of food and all things we need. Love and blessings to you! Vicki
