Turkey Lasagna Soup

Today feels like an ordinary day. You know, the to-do list—laundry, cooking, dishes, cleaning, working on my blog. It’s a fun job–this blogging business–but it’s also hard work. In 2016 I really want to love each day that God has given me, and not despise it. Wishing away each day, when the ordinary feels so blah, can waste a lot of life.

I know that each day is of great value. And today counts!

Today we are over in Bend, Oregon. We are here for a few weeks to check out the community and to enjoy the snow.

There is a lot of snow.

Daily rhythm

I’ll be cooking, sharing, meeting up with friends, snowshoeing, and working on my blog as usual. One thing about being a blogger is you can pretty much live anywhere, and still practice hospitality. Hospitality may look a little different while we are here, so if you’d like, you can follow me on Instagram or Snapchat for more daily updates.

This daily rhythm of life–some good days, some ordinary, some shiny and new, some bland and boring, some cold and some warm—gives us a chance to seek God no matter where we are.

It’s not about falling in love with people or new places, but in loving everyday experiences.

Sometimes it’s as simple as trying a new recipe, and loving it. Telling yourself that you’re going to make it again, but next time for friends or family.

Today I have a pot of soup on the stove, a very simple recipe. But what makes it unique is the topping – oh, so delicious.

Ricotta cheese mixed with two of my favorites cheese, plus cilantro.

I hold on tightly to today.

And I say thank you for now.

What ordinary thing or moment are you embracing today?
