Some Much Needed Comfort

I don't have much to say today. Everything is much too buried inside for me to even begin to sort through and share. But I wanted to pop in and share a Bible verse that I just came across. As soon as I saw it I burst into tears because it struck a cord with my heart. Life has been pretty rough the last few months. Believe it or not, I don't handle stress very well and it's starting to show. It's starting to show at work, at home, on me. I haven't done anything very "heathy" lately, no workouts, too much fast food and sweets. I'm trying desperately to be ok with this because, well, quite frankly I can't handle anything else at the moment. I feel lost, stressed, slightly depressed. I know it will pass- hard times always do- but its hard to keep that in perspective while you're going through the valley. Anyway, back to that Bible verse. It spoke so clearly to my troubled heart that I wanted to share it in case anyone happens along this little piece of the internet whose heart needs some comfort as mine did.

"The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?" Proverbs 20:24

Remember God is here for us. He knows where our lives are headed. He has a plan that is so much bigger than the heartache we face today. Don't lose hope. I promise there is a silver lining in your cloud. I trust there is one in mine too! I hope the Lord pours comfort into your hearts this evening. Hugs.

Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

There are few things better in a busy woman's life than the aroma of a cooked dinner wafting through the house when she finally makes it home at the end of a long day.

One of my favorite ways to cook during the week is with my slow cooker. The food is always moist, delicious, and (usually) easy to prepare.

Since it is the middle of the week, I thought you could all use a fresh and easy spin on dinner tonight.

Slow Cooker Fajitas

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 jalapeno
1 sweet onion
1 jar of salsa
taco seasoning

Add all ingredients to slow cooker with chicken on the bottom. Sprinkle taco seasoning on top. I usually add about half a cup of water as well to ensure nothing burns or dries out. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4-6. It really all depends on your crockpot. Shred chicken and serve with your favorite Mexican toppings.

Let me know how it turns out!

P.S. I really need to share a disclaimer here...this is a delicious recipe- no doubt. However, I have an even better fajita recipe that takes much, much more work. I will share it with you eventually. Just today. Carry on. ;)
