Back to the soup – I called it Desperation soup because of the paucity of the ingredients but, in reality, I am far from desperate. I just chose to use up the ingredients, rather than throwing them away, because I hate waste. We certainly have sufficient funds in the pot to buy the ingredients for as many soups as I care to make, and I am so very thankful for this. But I made the soup based on what was in my cupboard and, to a certain extent, you make your life according to the ingredients to hand.
When I was a teenager, I certainly wouldn’t have thought my life would be as it is now. I suppose I just assumed that the husband, possibly two or three children and a nice house would all fall into place. Folks who know me or have read this blog for any time know that my life didn’t turn out in the way I had expected. I have led what you might call a chequered life and it certainly wasn’t a dull journey. I chose a lot of wrong roads but eventually I took the only road worth going down – the road to Christ. It took me far too long and I wasted so many years and I can never get those years back.
But I’m in the right place now, at last. I have my wonderful husband, who is my soul mate, my best friend and the love of my life but, most of all, he’s my brother in Christ. I firmly believe that the Lord saved the best for last.🙂
