Food for Life


I eat my meals in odd portions. An appetizer is an early morning prayer walk, as sunrise filters through budding trees. Main course is my quiet time as I page through the Bible feasting on meat sometimes new and often familiar. Dessert comes as twilight approaches; a stroll through savory woods with a song of sweet worship in my heart. It is good to be grateful for daily nutrition. Craving for the best God has for each of us. I like to think of it as, “Chef’s Special.”

Dawn’s rising portion…
timber, table, time, and trust;
an eternal feast.

“And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.John 6:35 Over at dVerse we’re severing dinner, stop and see what’s on the spring menu.

    Very nice meal and it occurs all day long. I like the pairing of the dawn as a portion in the first line of the haiku and the eternal feast in the last line.

    Very nice indeed. We often forget about the Bread and Water of Life, don’t we?
