It is said that man does not live by bread alone, but in fact he did just that. The Israelites lived on only bread in the desert. Of course the bread was made for them by God. A special order. William Cobbett said "Without bread, all life is misery", and I would agree. Here are two of my favorite places to get bread when we go to the nearby city of Charlottesville. Albermarle Bakery is the first. Notice that their door handle is a loaf of bread. This is their window display for March. I thought it was quite lovely. And of course the last two pictures are Panera Bread, where not only can you get great breads, but soup to go with them. A usual trip to the grocery store will find me buying bread, bagels, english muffins, and two kinds of buns. I could live on a different kind of bread for every meal, and be pretty happy. Bread alone; yum!
"He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord." Deut. 8:3
