When Life’s Serves You Lemons

7 May

When life serves you lemons…

One afternoon Grandfather told me a story about an artist who had a strong desire to travel the world, but was unable to go anywhere because he had to stay home and support his parents.

Instead of seeing the wonders of the world, he could only look out from his basement studio at three stone steps leading up to the house next door. So he painted a picture of what he saw: a stone wall, three rough stone steps, a dandelion, and three flowers which appeared to be growing out of the stone. He called the painting, “Finding The Best In Life”. It ended up being reproduced and giving inspiration to many.

Maybe there are things you’ve wanted to do, places you wanted to go, dreams you wanted to fulfill, or goals you wanted to achieve which, for one reason or another, never came about. Your faith is not about where you are in life, but whom you’re with. That’s all that really matters. So stop looking at what is not and rejoice in what is. Make the best of it because with Him, the best is exactly what you have.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

Make the best of your situation, look for the good, give thanks for the good, and move in the good! As Grandfather always said: When life serves you lemons, make lemonade.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
