Love Lemons And Life



Lemons
Life
Love
 
How wonderful and refreshing lemons are.
Many decades ago, lemons were sought after
 Almost by everyone, The affluent and well to do served
lemons as a status symbol.
 
Sailors knew of the health benefits to keep a sailor from sickness!
 
Country folks and families loved the taste and refreshment they gave.
 
 
Just a simple bowl full of lemons!
 
Is your life like a bowl full of lemons?
Bright and cheery
Tart and tangy
Refreshing
 

Or
 

Are you bored?
Then may I suggest limes?
 
You have heard many times, that if life gives you lemons
(Make lemonade)
 
But I think you might want to go a little deeper, and wider.
Add limes my friend!
Shake it up!
May your love of Him
And the love for others
But whoa the love for your man!
Never let it grow cold!
 
Love is:
YOUR LIFE
 
Without LOVE, you will shrivel up!
Your lips will look like you have just sucked a lemon.
Pursed and puckered dry...
 
You will become a bitter woman,
Not a better woman!
 
Love like there is NO tomorrow.
Drink from the cup of the tangy fruit set before you.
What comes has passed from the Father's hand!
 
The Holy Spirit will add the sugar of His fruits,
Galatians 5: 22-23
 
Drink up my friends,
May we look for the blessings,
For I assure you they are there!
 
Blessings,
Roxy

  1. Hi Roxy, I love lemons and add a slice to my water in the evenings. I grew up and had a neighbor who had Meyers lemons-we used to eat them almost daily.
    Also love limes, especially in Mexican food.
    Great post!
    Hugs, Noreen

  5. Wow, what a great analogy! I refuse to be a lemon!! I'd rather be a sweet fruit like a strawberry or something. Get passed those darn little seeds to find something bright and sweet! Yep, I'm a strawberry not a lemon!

    We aren't made to be a bitter woman. God created us to be far more dainty and beautiful and soft and sweet. Bitterness is not a good thing to even have in the vocabulary of life!

    Love this post!
    Love You,
    Amy
