You choose how happy you are

Dear family and friends!

This has been a great week! We had a sweet time doing the Lord’s work in the way that he wants it to do. We reach down, lift up, give people hope and show them the path to everlasting joy 🙂
No matter how hard the situation is that our are in, it is our perspective and attitude that defines our happiness. This week I had a great experience, that showed me, how that works! Someone was criticizing me, and I was very annoyed, because I already was so tired. I prayed for help and immediately to my mind popped to ask for help for something we can do together in the future. That immediately changed the atmosphere of our conversation and I thought how sweet God helps us to be happy. 😀

God, our Heavenly Father gives us commandments and principles that WE MAY ACT AND BE HAPPY FROM THE CHOICES WE MAKE. It is all in our hand. He prepare all the blessings for us, we have to act and reach out for them!
