When Less Was More
We were broke, and I was trying to make the best of it. I prayed and asked God for help. The thought came to my mind that it would be nice to have some bread in the house. I had never made sandwich bread from scratch before and decided to look through some cookbooks. I came across a recipe that required few ingredients, and upon searching our cupboards, I was happy to find I had everything I needed. It took about 3 hours from start to finish to make the bread. The results were wonderful! My family enjoyed the homemade French bread much more than any bread I had bought from the store. Since that time, I have made my French bread during times of prosperity and poverty. I have received many compliments on it when serving it to company. Sometimes I think back to the first time I made that bread, and I am reminded once again that when we pray, God can take and use what little we have and make it a blessing.
