It Began With Soup

By JMathis

I began last week with making this recipe for Yellow Split Pea, Kale, and Italian Sausage Soup. I ended last week on my knees, thanking my Creator for good friends, the love of family and new beginnings.

Thank You, Lord, for all that is nourishing, satisfying and warming to the soul.

The fragrance of soup. The richness of life. Lord, You have given me so much more than I could ever deserve.

The simple with the complex. The earthly with the divine.

All of these and more are what You have bestowed upon me.

Your treasures are deep, profound and vast. Your ways are beyond my comprehension.

You are my safety. You are my song. Both refuge and muse. You are my everything.

Sustaining me. Leading me. Drawing me close.

Thank You, Lord, for all that is nourishing, satisfying and warming to the soul.

The embrace of autumn. The call to break bread. My heart bursting with thanksgiving.

Take me to where You can be found.

Take me to where we can talk, where we can dance, where we can be still.

Take me to where Your Spirit roams free.

Healing and rain. Laughter and sunshine.

I am floored by the unbelievable breadth that is You.

Last week started with soup, and ended in an outpouring of Your love.

Thank You, Lord, for all that is nourishing, satisfying and warming to the soul.
