12 I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. 

13 For I can do everything through Christ,[d] who gives me strength.–Philippians 4:12-13(NLT)

Great encouraging deal both bitter and sweet

happy lemons

It has been commonly quoted “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade”. I am not overly fond of lemonade however I do love a great deal and really fancy “free” that is the best price. So I was quite amused when I came across this image. In a time where generosity is not so common. I suppose giving you lemons should sour(spoil) your day but I love food and tend to veer towards the positive than the negative. So for this instance I only see good, no better yet great.

Thank you for the sour lemons, though when received had a different desire for my meal working with what a had. Now your generosity ignited new vision sweet and sour chicken, lemon chicken, ceviche, lemon cake, lemon ice or perhaps sorbet and definitely a delight in salads. Literally “taking the bitter with the sweet”.  I have endless creations to unfold so do keep delivering those “free” lemons. My gain, random thoughts
