Elisha: God's Messenger of Grace, pt. 3

Reading the other night in this gem of a book and came across the following paragraph:

As it was in the days of Elisha, so it is still true today. Whatever children are not, they undoubtedly are good imitators. What my father does, that will I do -- what my mother says, that will I say -- is the rule which most children follow. If the child hears true religion lightly spoken of at home, if he is accustomed to hear God's ministers or God's Word ridiculed, he may soon grow up to do exactly the same. Let us, then, who are parents walk very carefully. Bright eyes are on us, watching our every movement, scrutinizing our every action; quick ears are listening to us, hearing and storing up in the memory each careless, thoughtless word. Those eyes are our children's eyes, those ears are our children's ears, and each of those children is a trust, put into our hands by God, and of each such trust we shall be called upon to give an account.

Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Especially for Mrs. Mincy!!

  • 2 cups diced chicken
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup OR 1 can each cream of chicken and cream of celery (may wish to use low sodium)
  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • 1 T. dehydrated minced onion
  • 1 small can diced green chilies
Grease 9x13 dish. Tear 4-6 flour tortillas into bite sized pieces and line bottom of dish. Spread 1/2 of chicken mixture carefully over tortillas and top with grated Monterey Jack cheese. Repeat tortilla, chicken and cheese layers. Bake about 45 minutes at 350F or till bubbly in the middle. Remove from oven and allow to stand to 10-15 minutes (this makes cutting and serving much easier)

This dish freezes well after preparing (before baking).

Shared with me by my sister-in-law Debbie many years ago, this easy and delicious casserole is a favorite of the children and I!
