Cinnamon Bread & Prayers

We got some devastating news this week.  After spending Thursday trying to process what this news means to our family, I began to wring my hands worrying what I could do to reach out and help.

Saturday I called my mom and told her that because I didn’t know what to do, I was going to bake our family members some bread and could I please have her cinnamon bread recipe.

“Of course that is what you’re going to do! You’re Dutch!” she laughed as she rummaged through her recipe box. “Here it is. Oh this is a good one to make. It is so yummy.”

Saturday afternoon, I combined ingredients, I mixed them, and I prayed.

In no time, our home was filled with the scent of cinnamon and sugar and prayers hanging thick in the sunshine-filled kitchen and living space.
