Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding.  
In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6

This verse has ministered to my heart many times through the years.  It is a verse given me when I adopted my first son over 46 years ago as a single woman.  Everyone thought I was crazy BUT God had a better thought.

Now 2018 and the verse is being put to the test again.  Fresh reasons to trust God and fresh faith to know He will prove Himself faithful again.

What do you need to trust God for today?

Hugs and Blessings,

Tomato Tortellini Soup

My go to recipe for bbq ribs was found at Stephanie's blog Plain Chicken.  They are called "Fall Off The Bone Ribs" and they are wonderful. Ask any of our family or friends, they will tell you the ribs are a keeper.

Today I want to share another of Stephanie's recipes that is definitely a keeper also.  We can't get enough of this soup.

Especially our friends and family in Kentucky where the days have been in the single digits - give this soup a try.  It will warm your inside and make you smile - all at the same time.

Slow Cooker Tomato Tortellini Soup Recipe

1 lb. Italian sausage
                1 (32-oz) container chicken broth
1 (28-oz) can petite diced tomatoes
2 (10.75-oz) cans tomato soup
2 (8-oz) containers chive and onion cream cheese spread, softened
1 (18-oz) package refrigerated cheese tortellini, uncooked

In a skillet, cook Italian sausage until browned and no longer pink. Transfer cooked sausage to slow cooker.

Add chicken broth, tomatoes and tomato soup to slow cooker. Cover and cook on low 6 to 8 hours.

Stir in cream cheese and tortellini. Cook on high for 15 to 30 minutes, until tortellini is cooked.

Do yourself a culinary favor and visit Steph at for lots of good recipes.
