You reap what you sow…

If you plant blessings, you will harvest more abundantly.

If you plant love, you will harvest more abundantly.

If you plant gifts, you will harvest more abundantly.

So how can a person NOT want to do that???

What will you do with YOUR harvest today? I know what I’m going to do…

The thing about silver…

Hey everyone!  Yes, it has been while since I last posted.  I’ve been slightly busy, but today I was thinking about silver…  Why?  Due to a recent conversation with an old friend.  See, I always assume that everyone has had the same upbringing as myself and when I find out that is not the case, it always surprise me.  Strange for me to think that, I know…

But anyhow, I commented to my friend that I was surprised that all this time I knew her, I never knew she didn’t look for the silver lining in all situations.  Which got me to thinking…  Dangerous, yes, I know.  I pray you see the fruit of my thoughts soon in a new story…  The thing about silver is it is stronger than gold but more precious than bronze.   I will let you run with that a while.  I’m going back to my vacation…

Until next time…

Making Lemonade

So, we all know the saying “When life give you lemons, make lemonade,” but where did it come from?  Funny, I didn’t know myself until this week when I looked it up for a speech I gave on yesterday morning about my book, “The Lemon Tree”.   

So, how about it was first recorded in 1915 in someone OBITUARY!!!  How wild is that!  Know who knows if it was said prior to, but I find it fascinating that over 100 years and we are still saying it today!  

It was as it still is a befitting way to describe in a nice way that yes, life is hard but you can make it sweeter by being optomistic.  Now another “funny” that I would like to share with you is this…  Read my book, The Lemon Tree, and see how one little girl, a lemon tree plus a secret ingredient can turn your lemon juice into a lemonade that is sweeter than ANYTHING you will EVER find on this earth!
