360- lemonade out of lemons

Place: My Desk

Poison: Museli

Favourite Things: Surprise dates on Friday and long sleep in Saturdays.

In the midst of our Christmas messyness, one of our cars (the one we only brought 6 weeks ago) completly died. It was a lemon!

Not great.

My Husband has been pretty stressed about it. At the end of the day however, what can we do? Freak out, blame people, want recompense.

Yes maybe, but also with 9 weeks or so till our little one arrives, we just have to make lemonade out of lemons.

Life throws us the unexpected.

Life is often very unfair.

But at the end of the day we have money to put food on the table, we have a healthy baby growing, we both are healthy with amazing opportunities to live a life of influence.

I think we have brought a lie both in the Christian church and also in society that everything needs to go our way everyday, for our behaviours and attitudes to reflect peacefulness.

However we truly have the choice of offence.

Do you want to be offended or not?

Do we make the best out of a situation or not?

What is our response?

Its our choice and so often we act like our emotions and our responses to situations are all consuming and we can’t control them.

I beg to differ.

It doesnt feel great, but today my family is making lemonade out of lemons!

Drink anyone?
