Tuna with White Beans and Sundried Tomatoes | Life, Love, and Good Food

Happy Saturday, friends! I’m sitting here trying to figure out where all my time went this week and am enjoying taking a few leisurely moments to just catch my breath.

What about you? Can you relate? And, how is it that October is practically already over?

I remember my parents talking about “how time flies” when I was growing up and of course, I thought they were crazy. I’m older and wiser now and I realize that they were speaking truth!

Since I have a free moment today, I’m excited to share this healthy and delicious recipe for Tuna with White Beans and Sundried Tomatoes (a perfect combination of flavors!) that my family has enjoyed for several years.

My word of advice for you today is this: Slow down and take a breath, observe the beauty of Fall, take a moment to count your blessings, and while you’re at it, offer a prayer of thanks.

All week I’ve been reflecting on a prayer shared last Sunday at church, and today I’m praying that prayer for you — have a blessed day!

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your heartsthrough faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. Ephesians 3: 16-18
