Maybe because I don't like more than a few sips of lemonade. Too sour. And way too sweet.
It sure does look refreshing though. Even inviting. Especially on a hot and humid Long Island day.
"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." We've all heard/read that in the positive-thinking world. And I'm a proponent of it.
The only thing is, I don't know how to make lemonade.
How hard could it be, Diane? Water, lemons, sugar. No? Three simple ingredients.
I'm at a loss as to how to make lemonade from this sour life of mine right now. The once-spontaneous-girl in me is dormant...venturing out to make lemonade is scary.
I want to make lemonade, but I am...
All my ventures in lemonade-making over the last 30 years has always been for someone else. Ministering to others - encouraging them in their lemonade-making process.
Doing for others - walking alongside them stirring the ingredients until they learn to concoct an awesome, refreshing drink for themselves.
Doing for churches and other's ministries. I've helped make a lot of pitcherfuls of lemonade for other ministries over the years.
But, if the lemonade isn't ministry-based, I don't have a clue how to make it for myself. I've never had to - I've always been about my Father's business.
My Father is now telling me this is a season for me.
Can't it be about me and others at the same time? UGH.
So, how do I make lemonade for me out of these sour lemons???
All great lemonade-makers are welcome in my kitchen. Please share your Holy Spirit-inspired recipes with me.
Please. Because I am stuck.
Because of Him and Unto Him,
