I never was big on bible studies and I’m perfectly content to keep things that way. Don’t even try to ask me a question about the “New” Testament. I thought I’d heard that Jesus turned fish into loaves of bread. I never really understood why.
Wouldn’t the original fish, with its protein and Omega-3 fatty acids, have been better than those starchy carbs in the loaves of bread?
So, I looked it up. Many of you will already have had a better understanding of the story than I had (or even better than I have now). But it turns out Jesus was supposed to have turned 5 (or maybe 7) loaves of bread and 2 fish into enough bread and fish to feed more than 5,000 men, women, and children.
Come to think of it, I must have gotten two stories confused: “Bread/Fish” and “Water Into Wine.”
You may wonder why I’m even telling you about this. Well, while out and about in Fuengirola the other day, we walked onto the jetty and found more people fishing than we’ve seen there before. Actually, we’re seeing more people all over town, day and night, than we’ve seen here before.

Most of the fishermen were using slices of bread as bait. With some success (although nothing miraculous).
Anyway, I still prefer the idea of turning water into wine. (And, yes, I am expecting the lightning bolt any minute.)

And now you’ll have to excuse me…
