Life gave me lemonade






















I love to be optimistic about things, but I feel the world doesn't want us to be that way.
So I struggle with this joy I have and how to expose it upon a world that couldn't care less.
So what if I smile at the kids playing in the park, so what if my heart melts when an old couple is walking hand in hand. I love happy things. I love to be happy. Life was made to be lived with joy.

However, happiness is a fleeting emotion that can be tossed about by the waves in our lives. True joy comes from deep within. I find my joy in personally experiencing God in my life.

This song just makes me feel like its okay to be joyful about life, because, in reality, our lives are pretty amazing. I cannot say that life has ever truly given me lemons; God has always blessed my life with lemonade.

With no further ado, the lyrics to lemonade by chris rice:

So go ahead and ask her For happy ever after 'Cause nobody knows what's coming So why not take a chance on loving Come on, pour the glass and tempt me Either half-full or half-empty 'Cause if it all comes down to flavor The glass is tipping in my favor Life gave me lemonade and I can't imagine why Born on a sunny day, beneath a tangerine sky I live life without pretending I?m a sucker for happy endings Thanks for the lemonade Thanks for the lemonade! Now take your time to answer me For the beauty of romancing Is to calm your trembling hand with mine While begging love to fill your eyes I can hardly breathe while waiting To find out what your heart is saying And as we're swirling in this flavor The world is tilting in our favor Life gave me lemonade and I can't imagine why Born on a sunny day, beneath a tangerine sky I live life without pretending I'm a sucker for happy endings Thanks for the lemonade Thanks for the lemonade! I've got it made Rest in the shade And hold my love While God above Stirs with a spoon We share the moon Smile at the bees More sugar please He really loves us after all We're gonna need another straw! We're gonna need another straw! Life gave me lemonade and I can't imagine why Born on a sunny day, beneath a tangerine sky I live life without pretending I'm a sucker for happy endings Thanks for the lemonade Thanks for the lemonade!

Cool song, and cool post! I LOVE seeing old people walk hand in hand...that's one of the cool things about my job. Though I just had a thought that I probably shouldn't have posted about my job since I'm "not supposed to have one"...lol
I like it when life gives me lemonade :)
