and who seek the LORD:
Look to the rock from which you were cut
and to the quarry from which you were hewn;
2 look to Abraham, your father,
and to Sarah, who gave you birth.
When I called him he was only one man,
and I blessed him and made him many.
3 The LORD will surely comfort Zion
and will look with compassion on all her ruins;
he will make her deserts like Eden,
her wastelands like the garden of the LORD.
Joy and gladness will be found in her,
thanksgiving and the sound of singing."
Isaiah 51 :1-3
Wherever we are in life He is with us. He will make our desert into Eden. I love that, because if we keep our eyes on Jesus He will give us strength to have joy even in the midst of trials. Look to the Rock from which you were cut, seek the Lord and pursue righteousness, and joy and gladness will be found.

Onion Soup With Fontina and Thyme
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 large Vidalia onions, sliced
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
- 4 cups beef broth
- 4 slices ciabatta bread, cubed
- 4 ounces sliced fontina cheese
- Special equipment: 4 (1 1/2-cup) ovenproof ramekins
In a medium, heavy saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are tender, about 10 minutes. Add the thyme and broth. Simmer, uncovered, until the onions are soft, about 15 minutes.
Divide the soup between the 4 ovenproof ramekins. Divide the cubed bread among the ramekins. Top each with slices of fontina cheese. Place under the broiler, until the cheese is golden and bubbly, about 4 minutes. Serve immediately.
