I made whole wheat bread and soup for dinner tonight. I have been enjoying my Bosch and learning how to use it more, but it has been fun to have homemade whole wheat bread again.  I had this recipe one of my  friends  gave me when I was like 14, and we named it after her and have been making it ever since. I  had not made it for a long time. It has a  honey flavor, but today I added some oatmeal to it too and it was really good. I made 3 loaves (one that is a very long loaf) and 2 pans of rolls. I brought dinner to someone  that had a baby and figured that a simple dinner was fine. I brought  soup (it has sausage, potatoes, grated carrots, garlic, simmered in chicken broth and some sour cream stirred in at the last,  I ate mine with spinach in it.)
Then rolls, cookies and jam. I hope it was enough! There is just the two of them! <p>
Anyhow, it was raining again today so I did not get to do the weed eating today, awww! It is a great workout! <p> Today is my sister’s fourth anniversary! It is hard to believe they have been married four years, but even harder for me is to believe how in four years where we are at! I am  so thankful for all God has done  as four years ago  was a very hard time for us. My husband was very sick, I was pregnant with my youngest son and a couple days after the wedding my husband went to a hospital far away for  6 months. I did not know if he would ever come home, I did not think we would have a home for long and here we are, God has provided us with a home we are buying and enough food to eat, my husband is home and doing very well, healthy and has a job. God  has blessed us with four healthy children, even though it was hard to keep going, I am glad I did. I know many people do not make it through all of it, and I know there has to be a reason it has happened. God has a purpose even if it is just to work in my life to be patient and trusting Him when life looks impossible.

    Oh Martha, how wonderful to look back and see God's provision! I am so sorry for your heartache and rough time those four years ago, but so glad to see how far y'all have come– and TOGETHER.

    As to your bread and soup, it sounds SO delicious! I would've loved a meal like that after having a baby– okay, I would love that meal NOW! 🙂
