The Power Of Nurturing

“Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, said to him,”There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish;
but what good are these for so many?” Jesus said, “Have the people recline.” Now there was a great deal of grass in that place. So the men reclined, about five thousand in number. Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks..” John 6: 8 – 11

How often have we stared into our refrigerators and thought what I am going to do for dinner?  Food is a nurturing act.  We meet that immediate need, a primal need.  The Divine wants us to have those needs met and it is our calling as mom: Priest, Prophet and Queen, to help to met those needs.  We become the hands of the Divine as we transform simple food into a great meal that build up our bodies and the bodies of our loved ones.
