Oh, Lord of the broken and heartsick,
of the world weary and tumult tossed,
Oh, Lord of the fractured and failing,
of the wounded and flailing,
have mercy on us.
May our beliefs align with Your truths,
and may our weakness not hinder Your kingdom work
here in this battleground
between earth and heaven,
between the cross and the crown.
Oh, Lord of the blind and beleaguered,
the willing but wanting,
have mercy on us here below.
May our hearts break for the living lost
and our hands be quick to holy tasks
here on this hallowed ground
between world and wonder,
between sacrifice and song.
Oh, Lord, have mercy on us here below we pray.
I have been many places and felt at home and purposeful in many of those places; but one thing is for sure, though change comes, I will document it with words and pictures.
This dish is a tasty, animal free option for breakfast and can also be used for any other meal or a snack. I keep some in the fridge at the ready to be heated up as a main dish, a side dish, stuffed in a burrito, in a lettuce wrap, or mixed with a little hummus or vegan mayo for an eggless sandwich.
I am making granola at the same time, so given the weirdness of our oven, I turn on the burner first; otherwise, with the oven on, it won’t light. Yeah, I know.
Sauté diced portabello mushrooms, onion, and sliced small sweet peppers. I use a ceramic pan and there is no sticking, but if your pan sticks, add a bit of water or vegie broth. No oil.
After the onions are more translucent, crush garlic into the mix. Notice there are no specific ingredients. Add as much or as little according to your tastes.
This is 2 pounds of firm tofu after being squeezed of most of its liquid. Below is my fancy press–2 ten-pound free weights in Ziploc bags. 🙂 My hubby did not use them anymore, and they work like a charm! 🙂
Crumble the tofu into the pan and mix in.
I add the following: smoked paprika, cumin, black salt (eggy taste), turmeric, Frank’s Hot Sauce, and Bragg’s Amino Acids. Stir to incorporate flavors and dry any extra liquid. Then eat!! Yum!
And yes, the granola finished, too.
Unlikely but lovely to catch a swift flying hummingbird pausing for a drink of lilac juice.
