Adam told me how to add a few more pictures. Here is cute Emma and less cute me in front of Notre Dame.
This is SFERV.
We ate dinner in a restaurant on this street.
I don't always know how to do that. I don't always know how to focus on joy when I'm faced with the "overwhelming, painful, scary, unfair, or simply impossible." I really don't.Joy is powerful, and focusing on joy brings God’s power into our lives. As in all things, Jesus Christ is our ultimate exemplar, “who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross.” Think of that! In order for Him to endure the most excruciating experience ever endured on earth, our Savior focused on joy!And what was the joy that was set before Him? Surely it included the joy of cleansing, healing, and strengthening us; the joy of paying for the sins of all who would repent; the joy of making it possible for you and me to return home—clean and worthy—to live with our Heavenly Parents and families.If we focus on the joy that will come to us, or to those we love, what can we endure that presently seems overwhelming, painful, scary, unfair, or simply impossible?
