 Life... is like a grapefruit. It's orange and squishy, and has a few pips in it, and some folks have half a one for breakfast.

Douglas Adams

The grapefruit illustrates the fact that there are different areas in one’s life.  All areas of our life are important, but sometimes we need to focus on one more than the other.  Just as our finances, values, attitude, priorities, thinking, relationships and commitments are all parts of life, our faith is sometimes like sugar on grapefruit! Sugar does not change the grapefruit to an apple, it just makes it more bearable!

There is a lot more juice in grapefruit than meets the eye.

Taking only one day at a time or one problem at a time makes life easier and more enjoyable.  Keeping the segments of our work life and home life separate is a good idea too.  

Every part/segment of our lives is important but we need all of them to have a full life.  Each segment comes together to make a whole.



What fun to compare life to a grapefruit. I had never heard this before. But it makes sense talking about things in segments.

So cute with life as a grapefruit, but I do understand the analogy of it all :) I do remember having half of one for breakfast years ago myself :)
