Love Monger Ministries–“Our Daily Bread”…


bread-frenchHELLO GENTLE READERS,

I was watching a show on WWI on The History Channel the other morning and this got me thinking about my Grandfather Vickers. Grandpa was a tall (6′-6″), thin man, rarely spoke, and to be honest, I was a little bit scared of him.

I was telling LaVerna about my grandparents and grandpa’s military service. He was in the Battle of the Marne in 1917 and was the victim of mustard gas. He was presumed dead and thrown into an abandoned French farmhouse, which was a temporary morgue, with the other dead soldiers. When the squad that was transporting the dead brought another victim to this morgue, they saw my grandpa reaching for a crust of bread that was in a window sill. He was taken for medical treatment, and since I’m writing this, he obviously survived.

Isn’t it funny how many things turn on small events. The reach for a crust of bread. Had a reach for that crust of bread not been made, or seen, I wouldn’t be writing this blog.

GIVE US THIS DAY, OUR DAILY BREAD!!,

Tom and LaVerna Vickers
