Narrow, twisty, and rutted after it rains;
take me home, country road.

How to Make Albondigas Soup for a Satisfying Winter Meal

You'll love albondigas soup - meatballs in broth with vegetables and warm Mexican seasonings.

What's better than a bowl of steaming hot soup on a cold winter's day? Soup is my favorite lunch during the winter. Usually I serve warm homemade bread with soup, but this one is perfect with warm flour tortillas if you have some. True comfort food!

Silver Sunday

And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver... Psalm 12:6 NIV

I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:

- an ice storm that didn't happen
- cupcakes
- an invitation
- dinner out with hubby
- seed catalogs
Silver Sunday

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
    and on earth peace to those on whom His favor rests.”
Luke 2:8-14 NIV
