Jenna Mae Isaacson

and the Miracle of the Fish and Loaves

 For a precious granddaughter, from

Grandma and Grandpa

Always believe!


      One bright, sunny day, Jenna Mae Isaacson, age 6, was sitting in her room in Madison, Wisconsin, looking at the pictures in her bible around lunch time.


     "Look Lisa, Allison, and Robbie," she said as she turned the pages.  "Here is a picture of a little boy just about my size.  He is sharing his lunch with Jesus."


     Jenna began to imagine what it must have been like near the Sea of Galilee and pictured herself there.  In fact, she could even sense a cool breeze blowing across the water, feel the soft, green grass swaying around her, and smell the sweetness of the beautiful flowers growing along the mountainside.


     "Lisa, Allison, and Robbie, come here quickly!" Jenna yelled.  "Look at all these people scattered across the mountainside.  I wonder what they are doing?  Let's race to the top and see what's going on.  Ready, get set, go!"


     As Jenna reached the top first, she shouted, "Hurray, I won!"


     After running so hard for such a long distance, Jenna was very tired.  Lisa, Allison, and Robbie suggested to her that they should sit down and rest for a while in the plush, soft grass. 


     "I'm getting a little hungry,"  said Jenna.  "Let's have a picnic under this shady olive tree."


     Lisa, Allison, and Robbie agreed that having a picnic in such a beautiful place would be a wonderful idea. 


     Before they began eating, some people from the crowd approached them, noticing the food that Jenna had just spread out on a cloth.


     One of the men spoke to Jenna, "We are very hungry and noticed that you have five loaves of barley and two fish.  Will you share with us?"


     Jenna remembered Lisa, Allison, and Robbie telling her it was polite to share, so she answered,  "Yes, I will be happy to share my lunch with you, though I am afraid I only have these five loaves of barley bread and two fish.  "Surely this is not enough to feed this many people."


     The man, who was one of Jesus' disciples, replied that he would take it to Jesus.


     Now Jenna was very curious to see how many people would be able to eat from such a small amount of food. 


     She recalled Lisa, Allison, and Robbie telling her about the many miracles Jesus had performed and thought something very exciting was about to happen.


     When all the people were seated in groups of fifties and hundreds, Jesus took the five loaves of bread and two fish from the disciple.  He looked up to heaven, blessed the food and gave thanks for it.  He then gave the food to the disciples, who in turn passed the food to Jenna and all the other people.


     All five thousand men, women and children ate and ate until they could hold no more. 


     When everyone had feasted, Jesus commanded the disciples to collect any food that had not been eaten.  Jenna began to count.


     "Wow!  There are still twelve baskets full of food.  I was right; something very exciting did happen!"  exclaimed Jenna.


     About this time Jenna heard a growling, rumbling noise.  She realized that it was her stomach reminding her how hungry she really was.


     "We really had fun picturing the story of Jesus feeding five thousand people with five loaves and two fish, didn't we Lisa, Allison, and Robbie


     This is one story I will never forget!"
