On a frigid December morning, I sat down early and gathered my thoughts about this past month. A small revelation: Gratitude and attitude is everything!

As the days shorten, and nature forces us to enter into a time of quieter reflection (and colder days), I love our fire, family time, and reflecting. Thanksgiving was wonderful, filled with good food, great friends, family, and beautiful, rainy weather :)

So this morning, it’s quiet, I’m alone with my thoughts, and I’m thinking about a cozy dinner: Brussels Sprout Mushroom Chicken Soup.

Soup is so good for the body (and soul!)

Sometimes, such a simple recipe–it makes me thankful.

This delicious recipe is made with mushrooms, chicken, and Brussels sprouts!

Mm-m-m, check out the spices, too–cumin, paprika, cinnamon … :)

I bought a new devotional: God’s Wisdom for Navigating Life. It’s a year of daily devotions, written by one of my favorite authors, Timothy Keller.

Proverbs are tricky, when I open up the pages and know that in all its complexity and heartache and beauty, I see so much of my own life. But wisdom deepens every time I ask for help, and step out of the virtual world and into the real one, and seek guidance toward reconciling all things.

Wisdom means greeting those who are different with compassion and those in need with generosity and friendship. It says, tell me where you’re coming from, or tell me more about your experiences. We may be wrong sometimes; we need to be humble and wise.

We dig in and lean in and learn more about people.

Take time to listen more and speak less

This holiday season, I don’t know about you, but I truly want to take the time to listen more and speak less.

Honring truth in our lives is when we invite honesty and discomfort and uncertainty into our conversations. Which is why we love the “table” experience.

There’s so much love to give around the table. It’s not all about food, but more about investing in people.

 

This soup … get it simmering on your stove.

Pray for wisdom. Make an invite.

Love and eat.

  1. I would love this…..not sure my family would. Thank you for some good food for thought!

  2. Is bone broth just beef broth?
