Joy in the Journey- Happy Birthday David
Today we commemorate David’s 33rd birthday! It has been miraculous how the Lord has sustained and uplifted our family since David left this world over five years ago. Oh how we love and miss dear David. Nevertheless, the Lord’s plan that seals families together, throughout the eternities, has brought us much joy and peace, peace that passeth all understanding.
President Nelson recently taught the doctrine of joy in this mortal life when he said:
“That’s it! Saints can be happy under every circumstance. We can feel joy even while having a bad day, a bad week, or even a bad year! My dear brothers and sisters, the joy we feel has little to do with the circumstances of our lives and everything to do with the focus of our lives. When the focus of our lives is on God’s plan of salvation…..and Jesus Christ and His gospel, we can feel joy regardless of what is happening—or not happening—in our lives. Joy comes from and because of Him. He is the source of all joy.”
