In many areas, cold weather has hit hard, and illness seems to come along with the icy blasts. Consequently, this kind of weather has many of us wearing heavy sweaters, staying indoors, and eating hot soup.

For dinner last evening, I made a large pot of homemade soup.

Every time that we have eaten vegetables lately, I have saved the broth and poured it into a container in the freezer. I had almost a quart of broth saved, and that's what I put into the soup. Then, I added carrots, celery, a leek, a little onion, soy sauce, vegetable salt, and various seasonings. When the carrots were soft, I ladled the steaming soup into deep bowls. I served it along with green salads with strips of carrot, and slices of avocado.

That simple meal reminded me of 1 Timothy 6:8, which says, "And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content." (New King James Version) As long as we have food, clothing, and shelter, we have much to be thankful for.

Now make yourself some soup, stop eating sweets, and get plenty of rest. Spring will be here soon!
