When God Makes Lemonade

When God Makes Lemonade
True Stories that Amaze and Encourage
Created by Don Jacobson
When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade, right? Well this book is full of short stories, very easy to read stories, but most of all, full of true stories. But not your typical worse case scenario stories, these are stories of God making His lemonade in real peoples lives. Some are sad, some are funny, some make you reflect upon your own live situation and most will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside! Although it would be recommended to have tissues near by while you are reading, since there are sad tears and happy ones too!
Some are stories of God's providing for our every needs, some of His protection over us. There are some stories of His healing hands upon our weak and frail bodies and others of our brothers and sisters joining Him in his Glory. In this book, you will see God's grace and wisdom and all of His majesty poured out for us, like a nice tall glass of cold lemonade on the hotest day of August! Cool and Refreshing.
I read most of this book while in a hospital waiting room, having a sick child and then being sick myself, and while on my breaks at work. It was a great read because it was easy to pick up and put down because the stories are just the right lenght. Just long enough to get attatched but not too long either.  And I really appreciated all the different authors and the change of writting styles is refreshing. Mister Don Jacobson did a really good job putting all of this together and his little lemon drops are just too spot on !
This book would be great for anyone who just doesnt have the time or brain power right now to get invested into a novel or full lenght book. And anyone who enjoys the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" books is sure to enjoy this one!
