Raw Green Soup

We've had some mighty scary things happening around here and therefore things have been quiet on the blogging end. My Mom had a very serious situation and I can't tell you how afraid I was. My only salvation was knowing that I was not alone, none of us in the family were. We had Christ right by our side leading us and guiding us through this very difficult time. Fear was there but so too was comfort; knowing that God was in control. Deep down I just knew things were going to be okay. We had the support of many friends and family members praying for her and my Dad, and I am happy to say that she is home recovering and doing well--praise God!!

I have been playing around with some new recipes that have been popping into my head. Raw soups have been my focus lately and here is a recipe that just came together one day and turned out to be amazing.

That situation does sound scary. In times like that, I put my faith in God, too. Glad to hear your mom is doing better now. I'll keep her in my prayers for you.
