Why is There a Lemon in My Fruit Salad?
If you occasionally find yourself in a sour mood, wanting to kick the cat or fire your boss, then this book is for you. Pamela Gossiaux can help you look at life’s difficult moments through laughter (and sometimes tears) as she shares her own struggles to become the person God wants her to be.
In Galations 5, God asks us to cultivate the fruit of the Spirit—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control; but through her own trial and error, Pamela has found out that lemons are definitely NOT a fruit of the Spirit! Always ready to chat about her misadventures, Pamela shares with the reader how she tries to stay sweet even when life turns sour. She talks about her trials with health, jobs, marriage, grief and more as one thing after another hit her and her family throughout the early years of her marriage.
Through personal experience, she knows that God wants the best for us and will never forsake us. But sometimes He has to let us come to the end of our rope and slip off before we’re ready to let Him catch us. It’s then, and sometimes
only then, that we can find true joy. Bitterness can become a thing
of the past.
So grab a cup of tea, a box of Kleenex and let the cat curl up on your lap because this is a book that, once you start reading, you won’t want to put down.
