Baking Bread

Be gentle
   when you touch bread.
 Let it not lie
   uncared for, unwanted.
So often bread
is taken for granted.
There is so much beauty in bread-
Beauty of sun and soil,
Beauty of patient toil,
Winds and rains have caressed it,
   Christ often blessed it.
Be gentle
   when you touch bread.

Jessica... I'm a year late on this one, but this is one of my all-time favorite quotes from "More With Less" and I have a passion for making bread from scratch. Glad that someone else does too!
