Saturday, 28 July 2007 - Soup

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for soup.

Worries go down better with soup
. ~Jewish Proverb

Some people will advise that it's way too hot for soup. Too hot to cook a potful from scratch, too hot to watch the soup simmer for a few hours and too hot to eat such a spicy dish.

On any given day, I might agree. But, not today. I have worries a-plenty and must learn to swallow hard each time adversity strikes.

Anyway, it's too late to turn back. I've already thawed the chicken and gathered the other ingredients. Tortilla soup it is. Complete with a generous dose of chili peppers and cayenne pepper.

For this blessing, I am grateful.

I stumbled upon your blog a few weeks ago, and I subscribed. Your words continue to bless me each day. Thank you for being open with your struggles, your pain, and God's faithfulness through it all. Life has been disheartening for me for a while, and just when it seemed things might be looking up, another door was closed this morning.

we are praying for direction, and solace is what is most needed. Perhaps I can make soup again when our house has been sold, so as not to "infect" the air. :(

Thank you for blessing us with your sipmlicity.
