More than just soup...it's a gift.

 My sweet neighbor Kristi Minton read that I wasn't feeling good yesterday and about 3:00 in the afternoon I get a text that she is bringing me homemade chicken noodle soup! Yummy! Now what you need to know about Kristi is...growing up she helped run her parents restaurant...LaCasita...so she is an excellent cook my friends! ( I am still trying to convince her to open it back up for one day and make everyone chicken enchiladas)  I was soo excited when she came over! And the soup felt so good on my throat and just warmed my whole body up!
But it did more than just warmed my body...it warmed my heart and soul that she took the time to make me this soup. I felt so loved by her! Kristi has the gift of hospitality and she uses it very well to serve the kingdom. She and her husband Dave get up early every Sunday and set up our cafe at church. They do it because they love too and it's their way of serving God. They stay late and make sure things get cleaned up after church. It's a huge blessing for many to have breakfast available at our church. I truly appreciate their servant hearts. You never know how welcome someone might feel by simply serving them a donut or coffee with a smile. So thank you Kristi and Dave for all you do...how you do it and why you do it every week. Our church is extremely blessed with how they use their gifts on Sunday...so this Sunday when you are @ FCC stop by and tell them how much you appreciate them!
I feel even more blessed that they are my neighbors! What a lucky gal I am!
We all have different gifts...are you using yours to Glorify the kingdom? It could all start by simply making a bowl of soup for someone and making them feel loved!

**I'm feeling soo much better today! Thanks for all the sweet comments and prayers! You are all a huge source of encouragement for me! ***
