Yeah. Thank you for posting this! Just what I needed to hear...
Would you care to expand from your perspective on these points after you have let them process a bit? I think you would have a unique experience and thoughts that would accent this.... waiting! Hey can I just say I am so thankful that things are so full that you don't have time to blog!! What a praise that is!

Good stuff! Needed these words. Thank you Joanne.


Just wanted to say thank you so much for sharing your notes. I particularly love the point that a happy heart knows how to cry and laugh. Reminds me so much of the point that fullness of the Gospel has BOTH lamentation and praise! My whole goal for life now is to integrate both sides of the continuum, because hanging out at only stationary point omits the other possibility. Blessings to you!
