We are intended to live and relate in relationship and community, not in isolation. Corona virus makes solitary confinement such a harsh punishment.
Life is interesting and full of promise, but it does not compare to what lies ahead. As, Today is Good Friday, let us go meatless.
Thanks God for the food he provides. Cling to hope that He will end Corona virus.
This dish is comfort, full of different vegetables, delicious and easy to cook with food in the pantry and fridge.
Let’s cook and enjoy Good Friday!!!
