When Life Gives You Lemons by Kathy Carmichael

That old saying about making lemonade when life gives you lemons has been in my mind for the past several days. In my case, it seems it’s more like making lemon cookies.


Around four years ago, I suffered from major heart attacks and heart problems. As a result, I underwent open heart surgery involving a quadruple bypass and mitral valve repair. The doctor said I was young to be experiencing all these heart problems, which worked in my favor. I’m still working hard at living my life to the fullest possible, but I have to keep trying sometimes to do things that were once simple for me.

I’ve searched for the right recipe to make my life have value and fit with my personality. It hasn’t always been easy. Sometimes my recipe flopped and I had to start over again. Sometimes I had the wrong ingredients. For instance I have tried setting up a YouTube channel to talk about things of interest to me (my Ninja Foodi air fryer and pressure cooker, medicare, and so on). While I may eventually get those videos uploaded, in the meantime they are living in my iCloud storage.

The Lord has called me to write about my experiences and I’ve written a non-fiction book about them. In this case, the recipe was perfect. I felt as though the Holy Spirit was my co-writer, often directing what I should or should not include. And now the book will be releasing in a few days.

Here’s a link to a great lemon cookie recipe, guaranteed not to flop like some of my own.

  1. Congrats on the book! I just purchased my copy. And thanks for the recipe. I will definitely be trying it!


  2. Congratulations on writing your book! I have a similar take on this. When life gives you lemons, make whatever you want, become an alchemist. In contemporary society alchemy is a term used to describe the ability that people have to manifest personal change. Inner alchemy provides us the means to better understand ourselves, the Universe we live in and our purpose in life. I explore this subject in my latest blog article https://authorjoannereed.net/when-life-gives-you-lemon-makes-lemonade/. Feel free to check it out!
