Hiatus

I just realize that according to how fast you say the word ‘hiatus’ it sounds like ‘hi haters’. Anyways, it’s time for me to announce a short hiatus.

I’ll be spending some time away from social media for the rest of the week and that means blogging too. I’ve scheduled some posts given that I was looking forward to this time away from the blog. I have material to write, books to read, sleep to catch up on, family to spend time with, a pet to spoil, but most of all, time with God. 

I hope you have a wonderful and blessed week and I’ll be back sometime in January 2018 be it God’s willing to catch up with your blogs. Take care and stay safe.

50 Foods #2: Bread

Origin: Wherever people have lived
Date: At least 30,000 years ago
Type: Cooked dough of flour and water

baguette, bakery, bread

“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.”

Matthew 4:4

Our staple food!

Whenever I think of bread, I think of these events:

^ When the Israelites were in the wilderness and they berated Moses for having no bread. Moses, in turn, asked God to provide bread and the Lord provided manna (bread of Heaven).

^ When the French peasants had no bread and upon learning this, Queen Marie Antoinette shouted, ‘Let them eat cake!’ This phrase was misattributed to her as there is no record of her having said this according to Jean-Jacques Rousseau in his autobiography Confessions. I’ll leave this for another time, but the Queen had supposedly said ‘Let them eat brioche.’

Bread definitely changed the world.

Would I eat it?: YES! I love bread especially when its baked by mom.

December 26th: Moment of clarity

 :

Tell us about a time you’d been trying to solve a knotty problem — maybe it was an interpersonal problem, a life problem, a big ol’ problem — and you had a moment of clarity when the solution appeared to you, as though you were struck by lightning.

I’ve had a few moments like these, but I was struck by divine inspiration, not lightning. I’m bored of these prompts. Can you tell? I’m glad that it’s almost over for my heart is not in it anymore.
