Joy in all circumstances all our troubles my joy knows no bounds.
~ II Corinthians 7:4b ~

Cancer is the latest of the lessons God has walked me through, teaching me always that my joy is not dependent on my circumstances. That peace transcends those things in life that trip my spirit up. That love - His, at least! - is unconditional and freely offered. This video about Africa is a wonderful exemplar of the lessons I've been learning, and touched me deeply this morning.

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith,
who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame
and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

~ Hebrews 12:2 ~
