When Life Gives You Lemons

Throw them at people. Obviously. 

Hello, darlings! I'm back.


That title was totally and entirely random.

I've been needing to write something for the most very longest time ever.

But I haven't had half a moment to actually do so.

As of right now, I have about half an hour.


Let me tell you the story of when I was a little child.
I used to run through the fields and climb the trees. I used to chase the birds and gawk at the snakes. When I was a little child.
I couldn't be stopped, I wouldn't stop, I ran as fast as I could. I had to get to the end of this place, I wouldn't have stopped if I could.
Now I'm grown and the things I've known have changed so much and it's crazy. To think of the things I've come to be, now that I'm grown, a bit hazy.
I still run around and I go and I go and no one can think to stop me. It's just another place I'm running that race of getting to the end and victory.

Well. That wasn't exactly what I was expecting.
At least I feel a bit better now, now that I've gotten some words out.

It's been so very long.


  1. I like this part. Especially the growing up part. Because it's never what one expects it to be. And the last paragraph/stanza too.

    I'm so glad you're back!

  2. Okay, you have no idea, but I really needed to hear that today. All of it. Even the lemons.
    Thank you.

    1. Isn't that providential. I definitely was not expecting to encourage anyone with a momentary rambling such as that, but it's a great feeling knowing that I did! I'm glad God gave me a moment to write it for you :)

  3. I loved the way you started your post. It made me smile and you have no idea how much I've needed to smile this week. Summer has always been boring and dull to me. At least, I'll always have my books.

    Your whole poem/thought is still leaving me pondering... *5 minutes later* In conclusion, growing up is a weird thing.

    I'm glad you're back, Jessy! I've missed your presence on the blogosphere. :)

    1. I'm so glad to be of service, dearie. When I posted this, I certainly wasn't expecting to be helping anyone. And that beginning was so completely random. Guess it was God who threw that in my head.

      Same. I've never been a huge fan of summer. It's too hot and sticky to do much of anything and, well, mosquitoes. I'm in love with air conditioning, it's a necessary survival item.

      It's neat to see people still check my blog, though I haven't so much as logged in for something like 5 months! I've missed it on here, that's for sure.
