Birthday Presents

 Hello, Dear Ones!
I pray you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
We sure did and guess what?
Yesterday was my birthday!
I turned the ripe old age of 61!
But in my heart I still feel like a youngster.
Anyway...I wanted to share with you what God gave me for my birthday...
 We have a lemon tree out in the backyard and the fruit doesn't usually ripen until December around Christmas time. But this year they were ready on my birthday!

 So many lemons and they needed a bath.

 I thought I would make some lemonade!

 I cut my lemons into and used my old juicer to gather my lemon juice.

 I used a strainer to catch the seeds and pulp.

 Almost there.

Now I can enjoy a nice glass of fresh lemonade.
Lemonade is not just for summertime.

Thank you,God, for my birthday present!
Here's my recipe if you'd like it::


5 cups of water
I cup of lemon juice
1 cup of sugar

Combine and stir. Easy peasy and you can always used bottled lemon juice, but fresh is always better.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I leave you with a little Note Song ~ 

Thank You, Lord

For all that You've done, I will thank You
For all the You're going to do
For all that You've promised
And all that You are
Is all that has carried me through
Jesus I thank You

And I thank You
Thank You Lord
And I thank You
Thank You Lord

Thank You for loving and setting me free
Thank You for giving Your life just for me
How I thank You
Jesus, I thank You
Gracefully thank You
Thank You
