Leigh watched his twins, Bishop and Ellis, laughing as they scattered breadcrumbs for the birds in the front yard. The warm sun bathed them in its golden glow, and for a moment, all seemed perfect. But then, Leigh noticed something odd—a trail of breadcrumbs leading away from the children and into the distance.


Curiosity piqued, Leigh followed the trail, each crumb stirring memories long buried. With each step, he was transported back to moments of heartbreak and despair. He remembered the loss of his father, the struggles to provide for his family, and the pain of racism and the loss of his innocence.


Yet, as he reached the place where he had picked up each breadcrumb, Leigh realized something remarkable. In the midst of his darkest moments, he had been accompanied by an unseen presence, guiding him through the storms of life.


At the end of the breadcrumb trail, Leigh found himself standing in the backyard of his childhood home. Tears welled in his eyes as he remembered the trials he had faced here starting with his departure from this home, his birthplace. But he also felt a sense of gratitude—for the lessons learned, the strength gained, and the healing that continues to take place.


In that moment of reflection, Leigh saw how God had been with him every step of the way, providing sustenance for his soul even in the darkest of times. The breadcrumbs were a reminder of the divine presence that had carried him through.


Returning to the front yard, Leigh embraced his sons, feeling a profound sense of peace. He knew that his journey had not only transformed him but had also paved the way for a brighter future for his children. Through his own healing, he had begun to break the cycle of generational trauma, giving his children a life filled with love, joy, and endless possibilities.


As they continued to play in the warmth of the sun, Leigh thought about how the breadcrumbs pointing to his marriage and he whispered a silent prayer of gratitude, knowing that he was exactly where he was meant to be—surrounded by love, guided by faith, and nourished by the manna from heaven.
