Leek And Potato Soup Recipe

     A while back, I was introduced to leek and potato soup.  Let me tell you, it was delicious!  I have since tweaked it a bit, to suit our fancies.  Maybe you will enjoy it, too?

Leek & Potato Soup

3 Celery Ribs, chopped
1 Whole Garlic Bulb, pressed
2 Green Onions, chopped
1 Green Pepper, chopped
2 (or more!) Jalapenos, chopped
3 Leeks, chopped
2 Yellow Onions, chopped
4 Medium Potatoes, Peeled & Cubed
28 oz. Chicken Broth
3 TBS All-Purpose Flour
1/2 tsp Pepper
1/4 tsp Salt
2 TBS Olive Oil
3/4 Cup Sour Cream
1 Cup Water

     SAUTE:  Celery, yellow onions, leeks, green pepper, jalapenos, & garlic in oil, until tender.

     Add potatoes, broth, water, salt, & pepper:  bring to a boil.  Reduce heat & cover.  Simmer 10-15 minutes.
     
     In a mixing bowl, combine 1/4 cup sour cream with flour until smooth; then add to soup.  Cook & stir for another 2 minutes.  Reduce heat to low.  Stir in remaining sour cream & green onions until blended.  Heat thoroughly, then serve!

How Do We Cope, When We Are Sad?

     Considering we had been enduring some sadness in our lives recently, this message was aptly timed for us.  Dear had found it, and thought it would be encouraging to us.  Not only was it encouraging, but it was challenging.
     All of us endure sadness, and to varying degrees.  How often have we found it difficult to "function," when sad?  How do we get through sadness?
     This message was a great help for me, in how to overcome sadness.  It helped right my perspective.  I pray it is a blessing to you, too!

Cult Members Repent, and A Biblical Church Is Formed

     "Do you want to stay a cult, or be Christians?"  That is the question members of a church asks themselves.  So, those members of the cult repent.  That church loses over half of their congregation, due to souls being born again.  Those who leave the church?  Those who put a man's word above God's word.
     This documentary that a friend shared with me, greatly encouraged me.  It proved to me, that in spite of many obstacles, God still shows Himself powerful!  If but a few are willing to listen to Him, above all others, as well as take the leap of forsaking a powerful, man-made entity for the Lord, God will do great and mighty things!

W.o.W. Wednesday!

     Okay, seriously, this was one of the most exciting messages I have heard!  I wish every believer would take a listen to it!  I dare say it would get you excited, too!
     God's ways truly are marvelous.  How He orchestrates things, are truly "mind-blowing!"  Having a preacher point out some of it the other night, filled my heart with joy!
     Again, I do not want to give any of it away...I want you to listen to it, and enjoy all of the blessings therein.  It is not a lengthy message; but, it is power-packed!  Please, take the opportunity to hear it. :-D
