Okay, I live in the Northwest and we have way too many gray days. Some days I cry for sunshine.
Maybe my body was also craving some natural vitamin C. It seems that God has 'yellow' and 'vitamin C' in one natural package - the lemon. I saw these in the store and knew they would be going home with me. I made a huge batch of Fresh Lemonade Syrup, made one serving (refrigerated the rest) and sat down to enjoy my cup of sunshine.
I think God likes it when we crave Him so much, we are willing to do something about it. Acts 17:27 encourages us to "seek Him and reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far . . . "
I wanted it hot instead of cold - we still have snow on the ground!
Recipe: Dissolve 3 C. sugar in 1 C. boiling water. Cool. Add 3 C. lemon juice (16 lemons) and 2 tablespoons grated lemon peel. Cool and store in the refrigerator for up to one week. For 1 serving, combine 1/4 C. syrup to 3/4 C. water. (Adjust sugar, syrup, and/or water to your tastes.)
