Cross #13.4144

St Pete Beach, FL

A friend of mine invited me to the YaYa Sisterhood’s first meeting at the art center.  I was not able to attend, but I stopped by right as it was getting finished up to give her a hug as she had just lost her job.  Amazingly, the group of women invited me in to join them and then prayed over me as I had just had Bells Palsy a few weeks back and the right side of my face was paralyzed.  I came to give a hug and got so much in return from these beautiful women.  I was even able to make a few crosses myself.  Then when picking a cross to take home, I found one that spoke to my heart and made my heart smile…”When Life gives you Lemon’s, make orange juice.  Leave the world wondering how you did it!”  This really hit home, as my face being paralyzed and looking weird, people at work and around me look at me funny, and although I have decided to not let it get me down, they look at me with sorrow.  I plan to give them a laugh and show them that even in times like these, HE can make all things good.
