Hold Us Together and Sour Cream Bacon Crock Pot Chicken

I was listening to Matt Maher's song, "Hold Us Together" this morning - listen to it by clicking on the below CD cover.

It seems like every time something really tragic happens in this country most Americans unite. I realize that there are a lot of debates going on right now over gun control and violent video games but for the most part I have seen an outpouring of love and prayer for the victims and families in Connecticut.

We need to remember that love really is what holds us together in difficult times.  I look to Jesus to see how to model love, unconditional love.  He gives me the ability to love others even when I don't want to.  He is a living example of unconditional love.  That being said, whether you are a Christian or not, you have the ability to love.  No matter what your life experiences, you have the ability to love.  Whether you are in a good place or bad place in your life, you have the ability to love.

I think the Christmas season is an especially important time for us to demonstrate love for others - families, friends and even complete strangers who may be in need during this time of year.

My prayer today is that God hold us together, no matter what our beliefs or our background.  Keep love and hope alive!

Sour Cream Bacon Crock Pot Chicken
Another Pinterest recipe.  I liked it okay but my husband really loved it.
  • 4 bacon slices
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 (10 oz) cans roasted garlic cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Wrap one slice of bacon around each boneless chicken breast and place in a 4-5 quart crockpot.
  2. In medium bowl, combine condensed soups, sour cream, and flour and mix with wire whisk to blend. Pour over chicken.
  3. Cover crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours until chicken and bacon are thoroughly cooked. You may want to remove the chicken and beat the sauce with a wire whisk so it is very well blended.
  4. Pour sauce over chicken.
