comfort food etc.



"When she is quiet, there is a reason.
She is sorting through all the chaos 
in her head .. and all the madness 
in her heart." ~LLK

as i type ...
soup - low simmer - melding flavors.
white beans, shallots, herbs a'plenty, 
bacon, carrot, tomato, garlic, 
chicken stock .. and finally, 
about 10 minutes before serving..spinach.
this, & a deli purchased sweet french baguette
will offer our taste buds  
gastronomic happiness.
all this on a cool and somewhat rainy day.




"behind my smile .. is a story you would
not understand" unless it happened to you.

the hubs took me grocery shopping 
this evening. we're both a bit low and
togetherness is sought. staying close.
we're not surprised or shocked
how the enemy works . .
and yet,
learning something knew
pierced both our hearts.




"find rest oh my soul, in God alone."  psalm 62:5
on the heap and tumble of cares.



"set your mind on things above.." colossians 3:2

" . . . and the things of earth will grow strangely
dim in the light of His mercy and grace."
~Helen Lemmel

blessings,
sherry

    Comfort food indeed. Up late, finishing some late sewing, off to the studio early morning, and soup and stew bowls are on my mind :)

    A fine day to you my dear, and a Beautifully blessed Easter if not before.

  4. Soup is to the tummy what God's word is to the soul. Satisfying, warm, comforting, delicious. Elisabeth Elliott's words ring true. Such a wise woman, and a great legacy she left us. I made ham and anasazi bean soup yesterday. It makes the cottage smell so wonderful. Hugs, dear friend. And Happy Easter if we don't talk before. ~ Nancy

  7. Sherry, soup looks delicious. I cannot go into details about what I have been investigating for the last 8 years and the misery that follows. There are times I melt from discouragement. Gotta keep on keeping on. Praying for you.
    Spring Blessings,

  8. So many times I want to say something to let you know that I care, but I know that the hurt is deep and it seems I cannot put into words what I want to say, so I leave it alone and pray. I'm praying for you.

    I have the MOST wonderful soup recipe I want to share with you, your going to love it!

    I'll email.

    Rest in Him.

  10. This touches my heart, and ignites prayers on your behalf.

    BTW, the soup sounds amazing; hearty soup is a tonic for a rainy day, sure to bring a boost.
