With Easter just one month away, I thought to post one poem for each of these four weeks. While devotional writing walks with us step by step in the wilderness, poetry skips over the sea connecting unexpected wavetops. I pray that a few of these wave-tops will be a blessing to some.
Seven Loaves of the Bread of Life He took the seven loaves and the fish and having given thanks He broke them and gave them to the disciples and the disciples gave them to the crowds. Matthew 15:36 ESV Monday’s loaf was when the angels sang And shepherds knelt and the Heavens rang On Tuesday Mary dedicated Him In the temple like a lamb who was without sin At the Jordan On Wednesday Jesus was baptized And the dove descended to the bread of life Thursday’s loaf was when He broke the bread And He blessed the cup and He bowed His head Good Friday’s Bread was given for us And His blood poured down the rough rugged cross Saturday’s silence was the bread of sorrows As He lay in the tomb waiting for tomorrow Then on Sunday’s dawn came the Living Bread For all who believe He rose up from the dead!

Interesting take on the seven loaves, Pete. I got a little chill as I read the last line. Whenever we sing about the Resurrection in church, I feel like cheering. (Sometimes I do.😏)
Thanks for reading and I love the thought of cheering the resurrection. In Charity Gayle’s song” The Blood Applied,” when we get to the part where it says “He walked right out again” we actually do get some cheering mixed in with the singing. If you haven’t heard it yet give it a listen. Blessings
I’ve heard recordings like that, and I love them. (If we can yell and cheer when someone throws a ball through a hoop, can’t we at LEAST do that when the Son of God DEFEATS DEATH, FOR US?!) So far, at my Baptist church full of seminary students, I’m the only one.
Unique way to prepare for Easter ✝️
Love this a lot
Thanks! Have a blessed day!
Oh ya Pete. Great take on the loaves and I love fresh bread. I think that has to be one of the characteristics of living bread; it’s still hot. Best ever.
Yes – both my mom and my wife loved baking fresh bread and I have loved eating it hot from the oven all my life!
This is a creative poem and great idea for celebrating Holy Week! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks Bob. Happy Easter!
