I am being prompted to share something here that I’ve shared before. It’s in my book, Drowning in Lemonade. I try to do what God asks of me, to say yes to all His invitations to act when it’s for His glory and to advance His Kingdom. So here goes… To illustrate the magnificence of … Continue reading Oceans of Grace
I was presented with a gift by a young lady I had the pleasure of meeting last week. We happened to be at the same place at the same time for two completely different reasons, but such is the way of Providence. She gave me a little book that contains the wisdom of St. Alphonsus … Continue reading Give Him Everything
I wish more people knew their story. It's a great story of salvation. It needs to be told so that everyone can know that each one of us matters. Very much.

I'm trying something new here at Drowning In Lemonade; I'll be adding some of my posts in audio format for those who don't have time to read, but do have time to listen as they are walking, driving, doing chores around the house or in the yard. I do a lot of podcast listening and, … Continue reading Who Am I? (audio)
I'm sharing this Ascension video (below) on the chance that someone reading this today might have this same challenge. I get so easily distracted all the time - not just during prayer. But it's very frustrating to have that happen incessantly as I (try) to pray. I read somewhere that God is pleased with our … Continue reading Distractions, distractions
I found some notes for a talk I never gave that I've been prompted to share here. It started out to be about prayer. And, essentially, it still is. But I used the argument that God is always with us and so we never have to wonder if we can pray because prayer is just … Continue reading Where is Jesus?
