Soup

Good morning!

It’s that time of year! Time for soup! I just had my first homemade bowl of hot steaming chili on Sunday night. Yum! ♡ Another reason I love fall. ♡ Nothing takes the chill out of the air better than a nice hot bowl of soup! 🙂

What’s your favorite kind of soup?

Mine is chili. Pho. Potato. Tomato Bisque. Tortilla. Lobster Bisque. Broccoli Cheddar. The list goes on. But no cold soup for me! Tried it. Didn’t like it. 😦

Soup is my go to meal. Or salad. Usually it’s soup in the fall and winter and salad in the spring and summer. 

One of my favorite childhood stories was Stone Soup, an old folk tale where hungry strangers manipulate the local townsmen into sharing their food. 

Even as far back as biblical times Esau manipulated Jacob into sharing his food. And Jacob his birthright. 

Let’s all be conscientious about sharing our soup with others. Especially this time of year with cooler weather and holidays soon approaching.  There are school food drives to help those less fortunate and.John 3:16 Mission is always offering meals and a place to sleep or thanksgiving dinners that you can contribute to in your own community to help those without. Let’s not be soup nazis! . 

A hot bowl of soup not only warms the body, but comforts the soul when you are down and out. Let’s all be sure we help our fellow mankind turn their stone soup into a banquet. 

29And one day Jacob was cooking some soup when Esau came in from the fields in great need of food;  30 He said to Jacob, “Quick, let me have some of that red soup!I’m famished!” (That is why he was also called Edom.31 Jacob replied, “First sell me your birthright.”32 “Look, I am about to die,” Esau said. “What good is the birthright to me?”33 But Jacob said, “Swear to me first.” So he swore an oath to him, selling his birthright to Jacob.34 Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and some lentil soup. He ate and drank, and then got up and left.So Esau despised his birthright.     Genesis 25:29

Love and laughter,
