Simple Gifts

I love soup! I love making it as much as I love eating it. There's something therapeutic about the chopping and stirring and blending of ingredients as it warms up and starts sharing it's aroma with the room! A couple of quotes I found about soup:

  • To feel safe and warm on a cold wet night, all you really need is soup. ~ Laurie Colwin
  • Soup puts the heart at ease, calms down the violence of hunger, eliminates the tension of the day, and awakens and refines the appetite. ~ Auguste Escoffier
  • I live on good soup, not on fine words. ~ Moliere

You often hear people say, if you can't do anything more to help someone, at least pray for them. Well, pray for them and buy a few cans of soup! It's not homemade, but a good second place. On Feb. 2nd, we will have our 3rd annual Souper Bowl Sunday at God's Grace. It's our opportunity to collect cans of soup to take along to the Gathering Place the next day, which is our monthly Bingo party. It's a pretty easy way to help bless the members of TGP, and in turn ourselves.
