For dinner, I made the most wonderful chili from a new vegan cookbook, Superfood Soups by Julie Morris. It was delightful stirring the thick bean mixture in my black cast iron Dutch oven over the gas flame -- such a homey feeling on a winter's evening. The new recipe was fragrant, hearty, and delicious.
In so many ways, light prevails in this cold season of winter. Thank You, Heavenly Father!
