52 Weeks of Memories | 2: Happy

Finding Myself Young 52 Weeks of Memories
Week 2 - Happy

“God then remains, in following after whom we live well, and in reaching whom we live both well and happily.” St. Augustine - De Moribus Ecclesiae: I, 6, 10 (

Here we are with my best friend and her family. We try to meet up every six weeks or so. She and her husband are godparents to our daughters; the hubby and I are godparents to all three of their children. When we were choosing godparents for B and M, our main concern was that they be people who truly follow God, who would join us in guiding the girls to follow Him. This couple and another good friend met our requirements. We felt confident that they would support us in bringing up our daughters to love and serve Jesus, to lead lifestyles worthy of being called Christians; would pray often for them; would give advice that matches our own beliefs; and would be good role models to imitate. And so, I hope that our daughters will find the true happiness and good life of following after God. This photo means "Happy" to me because it is full of people I love: my husband, my children, my dear friends and my godchildren. I trust that not only will I enjoy their company here on earth, but that I will be able to sing praises to our Creator with them for all eternity in Heaven. What greater happiness can there be?  

"Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise." (James 5:13 NIV)
