"And seek not what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.

But rather, seek ye the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added unto you." Luke 12:29-31
The days are short and bitter cold, and the nights are never-ending — which can mean only one thing: It's that time of year again when McDonald's tricks me into paying $3 for a McRib sandwich.
After years of abuse at the hands of McDonald's marketing machine and underwhelming results time after time in the flavor department, last year I made a vow to never be fooled again.
My mom, Carol Thilmony, recently shared this soup recipe with me.
The recipe originally comes from one of her Master Gardener friends, Lorraine Coffeey of Onarga, who found it in a Betty Crocker cookbook.
"I add a few extras to the recipe and my family has enjoyed it for several decades," she said.
My mom considers it one of the best soups she's ever made.
"Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, as newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, and that ye may grow thereby: If so be, ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious." 1 Peter 2:1-3

The new store had a "soft opening" Thursday at 1907 W. Springfield Ave., C, in the northern portion of what was once a Blockbuster Video store.

URBANA — The general manager of Common Ground Food Co-Op plans to leave in May to take a new job with the Food Co-Op Initiative, Common Ground's board of directors announced.
Jacqueline Hannah has accepted a position as a co-op development specialist with the initiative, a national organization that advises startup cooperatives.
Homemade hummus is one of my favorite appetizers, and while I've been known to make my own pitas, I find the individual rolling to be a pain.
These breadsticks have a similar taste and texture, but roll out a lot more quickly, which is a good thing if you're on your way to a Super Bowl party or are hosting guests in your home.
"Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call." Acts 2:38-39

Cleanses and detox diets take many shapes and forms, but are similar in that they claim to remove toxins from the body and cause drastic weight loss. Many people even report high levels of energy and euphoria as well as feeling more spiritual overall. Sounds good, right?
