“When life gives you lemons…make lemonade.”




It’s not easy to get the “sour” out of our lives and look at the sweeter side of things.


Troubles come and go,but through everything, there can be a “silver lining” if we choose to see it that way.

God is helping me squeeze these lemons into my pitcher of life, and together with Him, my husband, my kids, and my family and friends, I am able to make a beverage of happiness and joy that I can share with others.

Thank you for all your comments and emails!!! Thank you for your prayers, encouragement and advice! I feel SO loved!
And I am truly thankful for that.

Lemons abound everywhere in our lives…so let’s go make some lemonade!

I just back in town and am just catching up. I am sorry that this happening to you and your family. You must be devastated. I hope you do get some answers (face to face) from the owner. I think you deserve at least that. I know you will land on your feet. The smarter cats always do! I will keep your family in my prayers.

Such a sweet message! And I always love babies with lemons pictures. ;o)

I am so sorry to hear about the foreclosure issue on your house (from the last post). I simply can't understand why people would do something like that. God has His hand over you, and He is certainly teaching you - and your children - so much in this! Praise Him that He has a plan for us. Thinking of your family, dear.

Your attitude is awe inspiring, your heart is priceless, your family is beautiful, and God doesn't let any trial in our life go unused for His Kingdom! I am praying for you my friend and believing for favor through this situation. And I know your Lemonade is very sweet and tastey...and MANY will come and drink from the fountain of lemonade you have had to make during your trials while they are having to face their own lemons :) I could use a sip of your lemonade today:)

Life is just full of mountains and valleys and I wouldn't want it any other way. We need to be humbled at times and there is always growth. Praying for your sweet family:)

I am glad she looks so cute in the outfit we got her for her BD. She is so funny. The Lord knows how to make the best lemonade. We can bring all the lemons that come our way and let Him take them and do whatever He sees fit to do with them. I know He is the best at fruit inspection so I know He will get rid of the bads ones. He may decide to then make the best lemonade we have ever tasted with the rest. You know it just means that He will work out all things together for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. He is faithful to keep us in the palm of His hands. I am glad He is in control and cares so much about each detail of our lives. Love you, Mom
