Roadside Wildflowers: The Battle of Faith →


I’ve really been thinking a lot about the practice of faith lately. It’s easy to be faithful when we’re happy, when we’re getting what we want. But what about when our prayers feel impossible? When it seems easier to move a mountain or make it snow in the summer time? God still requires the same…

Take-Me-Out-to-the-Ball-Game Soup

So I made this soup for dinner last night.  It was really good.  Next time however I would not use the “HOT” italian sausage…as the flavor over-powerd the soup a bit…still it was yummy!  I have some for lunch today too!  Low cal goodness!

 Take-Me-Out-to-the-Ball-Game Soup


WW Points: 4

Servings: 6

  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lb raw turkey sausage, Italian variety, casings discarded, sausage crumbled
  • 16 oz sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
  • 6 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  1. Heat the oil in a large nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat.  Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until translucent, 3-5 min.  Add the sausage and cook, breaking up the sausage with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 8 min.
  2. Add the sauerkraut and broth; bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, until the sausage is cooked through, about 20 min.  Yields generous 1 1/2 cups per serving

"Why can’t we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn’t work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos. ~Charles M. Schulz"

"WAIT patiently and realise
that God is in control
As you RENEW your strength in Him
and once again feel whole -
You’ll MOUNT UP over obstacles
with the power of eagles’ wings,
You’ll RUN and not be wearied
by the challenges life brings,
You’ll WALK and not feel overwhelmed,
but stronger than before,
If you wait upon the Lord
till He renews your strength once more."
Wait Patiently a poem by Emily Matthews

Stress… why you bother me so…

I’ve been so stressed and run down lately….  Stressed over my 1/2 marathon….  Can I do it?  (Even though I know I can, I’ve done many) Stressed over weight loss that seems to be at a stand still…  I need to find my MoJo again…  Prayers please….for peace from all this noise in my head.

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.  - Jeremiah 29:11-13
