When Life Gives you Lemons...

In When God Makes Lemonade, author Don Jacobson has collected real-life stories from around the world that show everyday folks discovering unexpected sweetness in the midst of sour circumstances. Some are funny, others are sobering, and more than a few will bring tears of amazement. But these true stories all have one thing in common: hope.
There's no question that life gives us "lemons," like issues with health, employment, and relationships. But when those lemons become lemonade, it's as refreshing as a cold drink on a hot summer day.
It's true that in life "stuff" happens, but as you'll see in these stories, lemonade happens too!

Right now, I can tell you that it's not fun when life throws lemons into your life, but I can tell that God is indeed making the best lemonade I will ever taste out of these bitter and sour lemonade. I can't tell for sure how God is going to do it, but when that happens, you can read it here on my blog. I think as amazing as these stories were written, mine will give hope to those submerged in darkness and my situation will shine a light for those who are also fighting the encompassing darkness and floundering to get a glimpse of the light of God.
