The saying, "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade!" is much more applicable in the convent than one might think.
Our loving benefactors take such good care of our growing family, and thus, when God blesses their lands, they share with us some of the delicious fruits of the harvest! Recently, a generous couple blessed the Community with a box of pears and apples. And talk about delicious! (How often can one say they ate a piece of fruit freshly picked off the tree?)
Sometimes, though, He wishes to feed His Brides with pears and apples ... and the Sisters are quite thankful!
