Morning Thoughts

Devotionals

Reading the devotionals this morning. It is about peace.

I read from Joyce Meyer Trusting God day to day. It is a lovely book with anedotes she shares that puts the scripture in perspective.

“Pursuing peace means making an effort.”

I hear so many of my clients wanting peace. I agree we need to make an effort in it, but we need to seek God for the help.

I usually ask my clients what behaviors can bring you peace?

My Peace

  • Quiet house
  • Reading devotionals
  • Bible study
  • Beauty
  • Nature
  • Cross Stitch
  • Knitting
  • Art
  • Calmness around me
  • Positive people
  • Soft fabrics
  • Good food
  • Clean home

I think the list can go on.

Try thinking and writing down your peace. And ask yourself if you include God in it.

Breakfast

My breakfast, green tea, toast with avocado and fried egg with everything bagel seasoning, and tomatoes and cucumbers with lemon basil vinaigrette.

Of course my cat has to lick the plate.

I have a few minutes before I have to take my dog out one more time before I head to the office. I’m going to tidy up a little and knit a few rows of the scarf I’m making.

Happy Day

Soup Anyone?

This evening became a wintery day. I drove home from the office with a wintery mix. Aaah the white Christmas wishers are getting their wish.

I made the cornbread muffins earlier in the day to have with soup I made last week.

Chicken Soup

It’s fairly simple recipe.

Crockpot, on high for 4 hours.

Put all ingredients in it together at once.

What you need:

  • Chicken breasts. Usually about 2 chicken breasts, if the package has three then I use three
  • 3 or 4 Carrots, or more, cut up in small pieces
  • 3 or 4 Celery sticks, or more, cut up in small pieces
  • Bone broth, one carton may need more.
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Parsley

Once chicken is almost done, I take it out of the crockpot and cut in small pieces/ sometimes it shreds. Then put it back for 30 mins or more.

This soup freezes nicely.

Later tonight, I’m going to do yoga, do my Bible study, read and watch a few vlogs. Then off to bed.

Enjoy your evening
