Lenten Devotional for February 19
Taste and see how good the Lord is!
The one who takes refuge in him is truly happy!
“Taste and see that the Lord is good, invites Psalm 34. As I learned long ago and continue to learn anew each day, it is the Lord, the bread keeper, who guards and gives life. This life is sheer gift. I receive it with deep gladness and am continually blessed by it. Now with each Eucharist I pray, in words spoken or unspoken, that I may fully receive the bread of life and that somehow I may share this gift with the world.”
–Jean M. Blomquist*
Keeper of the Bread, I praise your name and give thanks for my life. Amen.
Take a piece of bread, feel the crust and the soft interior. Raise it up and give thanks to God for this simple pleasure.
