One Day Moooorrreeee!!!! (Well, one week more...) - November 3, 2014

I feel a bit awkward as I stumble to find the correct words to begin this seemingly life altering email. I guess I will start by saying that all stories must come to an end, or there would never be a "Happily Ever After". Let me tell you of our wonderful week.

We were not able to teach 20 lessons this week, unfortunately, but we were still eager instruments in the hands of the Lord. In all reality, we were the victims of many "tombez-vous", meaning we were stood up about 7 times for our lessons, haha. We held to it and had some more wonderful finding moments where we met new children of our Heavenly Father and blessed their lives with the Spirit of the Lord. It was joyous! 

We were once again able to see our ami Yves, who is showing a real desire and full intent! I know that he also reads my blog, so Hi Yves!! haha, I hope you have read the Book of Mormon today! Anyway, we had some very spiritual lessons and I know that he will find for himself that this message is true as he continues to show love for the Lord and His gospel.
Side note: I laughed so incredibly hard this week with my lovely companion Soeur Jacobsen! She is such a light in my life... I am so grateful that we have been able to serve together, and although I am called as her trainer, she is definitely training me to be better! 

Also, there was a baptism this week in Angouleme!! I was so happy to see that the work has continued to move buoyantly forward since I left! I was touched to hear that it was Stephen Bottiau, my recent convert, who performed the baptism for Chris, the man being baptized. Being apart of this work is the glory of my life! I am so lucky and grateful to our loving Heavenly Father who has allowed someone as imperfect and flawed as I to participate in this saving work. It has brought me more joy than anything else in my life. 

We had a very holy experience this week as Elder Kearon of the 70 and his wife came to speak to our mission... it all began Wednesday night in Lyon as we had a slumber party at Soeur Do's apartment. I was blessed to see some of my favorite people in the world. I literally ran into Soeur Grunkes arms with tears in my eyes in the Lyon train station! We spent a lovely night together doing girly things, like face masks and eating chocolate... (pictures will be attached). It was a night to remember as we laid down mattresses on the floor and made a super bed where we all slumbered our little heads away until the next sacred morning. But seriously. The conference with Elder Kearon was beautiful. There were no dry eyes as the Roney's and the Kearon's blessed our mission with knowledge from on high. I would compare this experience to that of our experience when Elder Anderson of the 12 came to visit us in July. We learned a lot about the Spirit and how He works with our hearts and the hearts of those we teach. My heart was touched, and even though I only have a little time to spare as a missionary, I felt more drive and will to go out and apply once again what a servant of the Lord had taught to us. I am so grateful for the opportunity to have heard Elder Kearon three times on my mission! How blessed am I? I also recognized that a majority of the conference, whether given by the Roneys or the Kearons, was focused on our families, present but mostly future. They repeated over and over that how we live now, and how we prepare now will directly influence how our future families will become... wow. If I want Ammonite children, I must be an Ammonite mother. I want an eternal family. I will be sealed in the temple to a worthy return missionary. I will bury my weapons of war and I will die before I break my covenants with the Lord. My life is not really my life... the greatest way to peace and happiness is to give my life to the Lord. During this conference, we listened to Come Thou Fount. During the song all I wanted to do was fall to my knees and tell the Lord "Heavenly Father, Here's my heart. Please, Take and Seal it! Seal it for thy courts above!!" This conference was an Alma 17 experience for me. I am again indebted to the Lord for his infinite goodness. I love Him.

Friday was Halloween. It was glorious. I celebrated by wearing my orange pumpkin socks under my boots... no one else could see them, but I knew they were there, and that's all that matters :) one of the greatest moments of the day was when I was brushing my teeth... I heard ghost noises coming from the hallway... so I go looking curiously... I found Soeur Jacobsen walking around the living room aimlessly with a white blanket over her head, hahahaha. I about lost it! We got to see Amandine and her little sister Gaelle! Gaelle was going trick or treating, so we got to do her creepy makeup and her crazy ridiculous hair!! So fun :) then we went to a Halloween party hosted by Bérangère!! We helped her prep and then welcomed her guests! It was one of the coolest experiences ever! I am so proud of her for inviting us over! All of her nonmember friends were asking us awesome questions and they all recognized us! It was a great way to show her friends that we're normal. Some of her friends even said they wanted to learn more. THEREFORE! Invite your friends over! Let the missionary tags do their work :) 

One cool miracle from yesterday... we were lost looking for a less active, so we walked down a creepy alley... there we found a lovely hidden wonder house! We decided to ring the doorbell for fun :) a 19 year old came to the door and we were able to have one of the most spiritually led contacts of my entire life... the Spirit was penetrating as we testified of the love of the Lord and the reality of His existence. It was a miracle. 

Other than some other miracles that I will have to share later on, we had a lovely Sabbath day... we felt like missionaries in America as we made a meal schedule and passed it around to the members. Simply put, we will be eating with the members at least twice a day this week. YUM. FRENCH FOOD FOR LIFE! 

Yesterday reality hit. Moments come where I don't really know what to think and I suddenly want to burst into tears. I have been comforted by the words of President Uchtdorf for the last few months, and I believe they will carry me through the next week... He says "In light of what we know about our eternal destiny, is it any wonder that
whenever we face the bitter endings of life, they seem unacceptable to us?There 
seems to be something inside of us that resists endings. 

Why is this? Because we are made of the stuff of eternity. We are eternal beings, children of the Almighty God, whose name is Endless and who promises eternal blessings without number. Endings are not our destiny. The more we learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ, the more we realize that endings here in mortality are not endings at all. They are merely interruptions—temporary pauses that one day will seem small compared to the eternal joy awaiting the faithful. 

How grateful I am to my Heavenly Father that in His plan there are no true endings, only everlasting beginnings."

I am afraid of the great unknown, but in my heart I know that there are good things to come. This next chapter will be the greatest transfer of my life long mission. I'm sure of it. I know that this is the true and living church of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus is the Christ. He lived and died for us. Everything I do is for Him. Its all because of Him.  

I love and trust Him. He loves you. I love you too. Have a wonderful LONG LONG LONG week.

Avec tout mon amour,

We did it! We did it! We did it! HORRAY!! Now you see us, we did it!! Nananananananah!! - October 27, 2014

(Sing to the song "We did it!" from the end of every Dora the Explorer episode) 

We did it! We did it! We did it! HORRAY!! Now you see us, we did it!! Nananananananah!! 
We worked really hard and we prayed a whole lot, yeah we did it. We did it. We did it. We did it.
We scratched and we bit and we taught 20 lessons, oh yeah, we did it! We did it! We did it! Hooray!!
That's right freres and soeurs!! Soeur Jacobsen and I finally reached the mission goal of teaching 20 lessons this week!! I will tell you one thing... it took a whole lot of work and faith, but with the Lord, all things are possible. We didnt know if we would make it, but the Lord carried us through the finish line, with plenty of time to spare. Let me tell you how it was done...

Well, actually the beginning of the week was spent in Lyon, with a great Zone PDay where we played Werewolf for 3 hours while eating sugar cookies, ha. Fun! Then we had a suuupppper cool exchange with some sisters in the Vale de Saone ward in Lyon. I did an exchange with Soeur De Feo from Rome, Italy!! Took me back to the days with all my wonderful European companions... Miss them to much :,,) They literally tried to call all of their less actives and amis, but NO ONE was free! So we had a day full of contacting ahead of us. Good thing we are both experienced missionaries... so for us that just meant a day full of MIRACLES!! We went to a little, GORGEOUS outer ville called Villefranche. It took us almost an hour to get their on bus. WELL WORTH IT BECAUSE THE LORD HAD PLANNED OUR DAY ALREADY! We immediately began to talk to EVERYONE. Soon hereafter we met a nice lady who invited us to visit her husband with her in the retirement home... so we went and met some nice old folks and then talked to Josiane for about an hour and a half and taught the restoration and gave her a copy of the Book of Mormon. She was such a Christlike woman... we learned a lot from her. We headed into the TINY central ville afterwards and contacted like crazy women! We ended up having 2 other lessons and found one of the coolest elect couples I have ever met in my mission... I was slightly jealous that they were not my new amis... they were so wonderful, and both Soeur De Feo and I had a feeling that they were the whole reason we had gone to this little ville. The Lord puts the people in our path, we just need to be willing to talk to them. So, we had a wonderful miracle filled exchange, which was celebrated with some very delicious and much deserved dark chocolate and coconut pasteries. Yum. Missionary work rules. So we lost 2 days out of our sector because of this exchange, but we felt as if we were able to help those sisters advance their work! Preach My Gospel tells us "Leave every sector better than how you found it." I take this very seriously, thinking also of the sectors that I visit even for a short day or two... the Lords work needs to be done everywhere. Also, Soeur De Feo taught me some cool Italian "Ho del pesce nelle mie tasche."... which means "I have a fish in my pocket."

We got to see some great amis this week including the ADORABLE famille Ferreira. We watched the Restoration DVD and it was the first time that the kids were quiet and payed attention the whole time, and then Nabil, the punkish 10 year old offered the closing prayer... families can be eternal. I can practically see this family in white!! They are progressing SOOOO slowly, but they are progressing. Annabella, the mom, even read this time :) invitations being respected!! WOOHOO!! We saw Marie-Lou and got her a Portuguese Book of Mormon. Shes excited. We got to teach Amandines little sister Gaelle this week by surprise! And the even better surprise... she had stolen her moms Book of Mormon and read and taken notes!! We had to teach her the commandment "Thou shalt not steal", but she read! SO AWESOME! We have only taught her twice, but the crazy thing is is that we think Gaelle could be baptized the 9th of November! And she wants to!! Pray like crazy for her :) 

We received revelation this week. Straight up revelation from the Lord. We received revelation that we needed to invite Camille to be baptized the 8th of November. Crazy, beccause her mom is completely against the church and wont give her permission. But we had  tearfilled lesson with her and then we all fasted together on Friday to soften her mothers heart... we will see how things go as Camille takes those steps of faith to talk with her mom and hopefully receive permission. Pray for her as well, as she could just as well be our baptism at the end of this transfer. 

Friday was an anwer to our prayers... The Sister Training Leaders came to our rescue and we had an exchange in Clermont. We had 2 teams of sisters working in our names sake!! I was lucky enough to be with Sister Bragg... great missionary. We felt prompted to go to a little ville outside of Clermont called Royat. Our excuse was we were going to find some lost less actives, but the Lord knew the real reason. When we arrrived there, and we began talking to people, we met a middle aged man named Yves. He immediately asked us to sit down with him on the steps to do the questionnnaire. However, his friends kept coming up and bothering us. So, we got up and he took us to a table near by where we could sit down without being disturbed. We taught him the restoration. As we talked about Joseph Smith he looked at us and told us "That is compeletly possible." When he recognized the Mormon title, he talked about geneology, because his mom was a professional! He put his glasses on all seriously and looked at us over the table and asked "What do you propose then?"... we exchanged glances and then told him that we wanted to teach him several times a week and we would invite him to read and pray and keep the commandments and change his life if necessary in order to know if our message was true. He agreed full heartedly. We prayed. We fixed our next meeting, and then we were on our way as if it was every day life. Soeur Bragg and I had to pray and thank the Lord for this unforseen miracle. It was just wonderful. We were able to meet many, many other great children of God. Then the Rapinat family strengthened us physically with a delicious meal, and then spiritually by sharing their inspiring conversion stories. Our ward is wonderful.

Amandine taught with us this week. WOOPWOOP!! That was fun. We also discovered that Armelle is still in Clermont! MIRACLE! We hope to start teaching her again this week. Saturday night we were determined to teach 2 more lessons... even though it was freezing cold and dark outside, Soeur Jacobsen and I ventured off into town to teach some lessons. For about 2 hours we talked to everyone in our path... not too many people were willing to stop. We finally taught a lesson to a cool dude from Sweden who is here on vacation. We needed to head home to make curfew... we were worried, because to reach our goal of 20 lessons, we needed to teach 5 lessons Sunday. We made plans. We already had 3 lessons planned, so we would just need 2 miracles! It almost seemed too easy...

We woke up on Sunday morning with hope in our hearts. We went to church and had a very inspiring broadcast from Lyon for our stake conference. Afterwards we had weekly planning... totally normal. We called our amis to confirm our lessons... and they ALL cancelled. Fear kinda struck our hearts. There were some young adults still at the church. We asked them to pray with us before we left. They prayed that we would teach 5 lessons to meet our goal, and off we went into the vastness of Clermont to find 5 lessons, floating on the faith of our remarkable JAs!! We talked to everyone... and I mean EVERYONE! The second person we talked to was a young girl named Gloria. We felt kinda creepy as we followed her off the tram, but things worked out as she is a devout Christian. We had a great little lesson with her and then prayed holding hands in the street... also, I am so impressed with the number of people that are comfortable praying in the streets with us, haha. We also met two super cool guys in Jardin le Coq that we taught lessons too, as well as the most radiant old lady in the world! That was 4 lessons in 2 hours... we went to Jaude and Soeur Jacobsen lead the way to an adorable young woman who loved speaking with us in English... about faith and Christ and the restoration. And then it was done. We had taught 5 miracle lessons in 3 hours. We even had time to spare, so we started wracking up the points and talked to more people! Angels were with us. 
We know that it was only through the Lord that these miracles were possible. 

I am so thankful for this gospel. I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve the Lord and teach this gospel. I am so thankful for the inspiration of my mission president to help us set goals to teach 20 lessons. Its possible. With the Lord, it is possible. I love Him. He loves you. I love you too. Have a great week.

Avec tout mon amour,

La Vie est Belle - October 20, 2014

What a week to remember... We wanted to have a miracle packed week, because we realized that we needed to find some new amis asap... So we prayed for new amis... the first 3 days of the week were rough, because the amis that we already had weren't answering the phone or coming to our RDVs... So, we felt as if we were starting from negative of what we already had!! There was one night where I just cried because my hope was almost spent. I had a beautiful experience with the Lord in prayer that brought light to my heart. We felt determined to find miracles and knew that the Lord had a greater plan than we could see. 

One morning we left for a RDV with Patrice... He didn't show up and then when we called him and he yelled at us... getting to the end of this line. Anyway, I hung up the phone and told Soeur Jacobsen that the Lord needed us to teach someone else. We prayed right then. We got out our questionnaires and then turned to the first lady we saw. She accepted and then invited us to sit on the bench with her. We talked about the Savior and incredible spiritual experiences she has had in her life. Marie-Lou is incredibly open and we had a lovely lesson and set our next RDV for Wednesday... So, miracle? The Lord is planning for us. He is just waiting for us to see His greater plans. Seek His will!!

Another cool miracle: Amandine called us one morning during studies... abnormal. She seemed really
happy on the phone. She had spoken with her mom and two sisters and invited them to be taught by the missionaries... and they accepted!! WWWHHHHHAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTT?! So cool. She is the perfect example. She met the missionaries, found her own testimony, and is now sharing with her family and friends and introducing them to the missionaries. Her story could be found in the scriptures. So, we went over to their house on Thursday night and talked about the Savior. We watched a film and read the scriptures... The spirit was wonderful. Amandine was able to testify and her family talked about how much happier and peaceful she was... Real example. We talked about the importance of developing Christlike attributes to bring peace and joy into the home... we can find the fullness of the gospel in the restored church of Christ. They invited us back over to teach them about the restoration and the Book of Mormon. It was so ideal. I am living the missionary dream right now!!

We were able to see many less actives this week as well, and to have a super fun FHE/crepe night in the world!! Such great memories. We taught Amandine about temples and geneology. She is so fantastic... She is so ready to expand and understand more and find more and grow more!! She hopes to go to the temple soon :) 

Pray that Colette, Anne-Flore, and Ibrahim will get back into contact with us... they have disappeared. But! The Lord has been generous. Our new ami, Shady, I told you about him last week, has been doing great! He's Muslim, but loves the Arabic Book of Mormon already!! We have had some good laughs and wonderful weather. I can't complain. We also got to go to a Primary activity this weekend because I taught the kids how to make balloons!! WOOHOO! SO much fun :) 
Cool pictures are from last Pday... Beautiful cathedral and Soeur Jacobsen and I bored out of our minds at H&M with the ugliest outfits in the world, hahahaha. Just go with it... :) 

I'm sorry this is so jumbled. 

I also wanted to share Jeremiah 18:6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith theLord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, 
so are ye in minehand, O house of Israel. 

Remember that as you follow the Lords will, He will be able to mold you and help you to become the divine person you were intended to turn into. TRUST HIM! Hes wonderful. I love Him. I love the Lord. I love the Savior. He loves you. I love you. Have a wonderful week.

Will the Real Slim Shady Please Stand Up - October 13, 2014

Hahahaha, coolest miracle!! So we sit down to do emails. We start freakin out and speaking in English... a new employee in the internet café freaks out and comes over to speak to us in English!! He's from Australia. We had a nice conversation and then all of a sudden he told us he really wants to learn about the message we're sharing!! We took his number and set a rdv... then I asked his name. He responded "Shady."..... "What?"-me. "Shady, like Slim Shady.".... hahahahaha, so yes. We have a new potential ami named Shady :) I guess our fast to find new amis really worked!! We're excited and we can feel the miracles that are going to overflow our schedules this week! 

We got to see the lovely Ferreira family this week! We just ran by with cookies and luckily they were home. We stayed only a small moment, but they began sharing their lives. They are experiencing some opposition right now: lots of work, fatigue, overwhelming feelings. We worry for them, but lifted them up by sharing spiritual strength through the scriptures. They felt better as we talked about the Savior. He really is the solution to everything. We just ate crepes at the restaurant where Annabella Ferreira works! She told us to stop by, so we did! The 1513 Café is the most legit restaurant in all of Clermont... We were so glutenous. I got a crepe with coconut ice cream and hot fudge. When Annabella saw us, she ran out of the kitchen
with the BIGGEST smile in the world!! It was so worth it... I think she really felt our love :) also, her crepes are out of this world.

FUN FACTS! Soeur Jacobsen's grandpa was the mission president of the Macon Georgia mission in 1994!! SMALL WORLD! Also, Soeur Jacobsen is quite clumsy. As she was closing the church gate yesterday, it snagged her heel, and tore off the biggest chunk of skin in the world. It was bleeding profusely. I WAS SCREAMING!! I ran into the chapel as she hobbled in. I dug through the kitchen and found the first aid kit, throwing stuff around and screaming all the while. She came inside and I had to operate (put gauze) on her foot. Then I cleaned up all the nasty blood on the floor in the church, hahahha. It was so funny. Shes doing better today :) it was a fun story. I can now say that I saved my companions life :)

We had lots of fun lessons and rdv's this week... we made cookies with Amandine, Angelina, and one of her Chinese friends!! We finally got to see our "Dry Member" ami
Camille... We talked about PMG and she told us she has started praying about her mission... She is such an incredible example for us. The ultimate ami!! She also finished Personal Progress recently. Wowzers.

Saturday I had my first split!! We went to Vichy with some members to find less actives. It was nice, even though our less active wasn't home and we went on a crazy goose hunt. But ca va. It was fun and I love the new missionary spirit in the ward!! 

We had a way fun FHE with the single ladies in the ward. MEXICAN NIGHT!! Such a great memory
:) and yummy, oh so yummy food...

We saw Colette. Not the best lesson ever. She went to an evangelist church yesterday and really liked it. Oh no. But we hope that the spirit will work on her. We found an application that reads the Book of Mormon outloud in Portuguese. It will help her we believe. Pray for her to pray and read and receive her answer!! 

We fixed a baptismal date with Ibrahim for the 8th of November!! We also re-fixed Patrice's date for that day as well... All is going well, but we need more amis, hence
our fast. We really feel like this is the week!! Pray for us as we work our buns off!!

We had a very inspiring Zone Training this week. I was in tears several times. They asked me to sing Come Unto Christ as a testimony of the Savior. Made me think of Soeur Paulo and Soeur Grunke :) Miss them... I was so struck by many of the things the leaders said... I felt a sense of urgency. The Spirit was reminding me once again of the short amount of time I have. We all wrote one weakness we would give up  on a little piece of paper, and then we all shredded them with a paper shredder at the front of the room. YEAH!! The Zone Leaders invited us to go out of the meeting with a renewed vision, ready to be the greatest missionaries ever. We left. I contacted on both metros on the way to the train station, even though it was only 2 stops away... I did everything I could
to make every moment count. I have been doing the same here in Clermont, not allowing a moment
to go by without searching the will of the Lord... I have felt so satisfied with myself and my efforts, and even if we haven't found a bajillion new amis, I feel as if I am truly making a difference in the lives of our Heavenly Father's children. This is truly the life.

Yesterday I was touched by the Spirit many times during testimony meeting... I love the ward with all my heart. They have changed my life. I love my life. I love my mission. I love France. I love this gospel. I love Heavenly Father. I love my Savior Jesus Christ. Love is the key. It is the key to peace and happiness. I don't know what I would do without my mission, without this knowledge, without this hope... Wow. I am so lucky. Thank you. I love you all. Have a wonderful week.

Avec tout mon amour,

Soeur Beeny

There She Goes - October 6, 2014

So, last week was actually very, very boring, and very, very uneventful. I was in Lyon from Monday till Thursday. The new missionaries were stuck in London for 12 hours, so everything was pushed back a whole day! It was crazy, and quite mind numbing... The trainers had nothing to do, so we did what we could. Thank heavens I was with Soeur Do! She is serving in Lyon, so we did some work in her sector. We saw some less actives and did contacting and what not... we also got to see some beautiful places in Lyon, including the overlook of Lyon!! The last time I went there was the first day I arrived in France... Wow, how times have changed, and yet it seems like it was only yesterday. It gave me a much greater perspective of what I need to do, and how little time I have left. I left Lyon with a prayer in my heart that I would be able to accomplish all that the Lord has in store for us in the short time that remains. Now is the moment that I will show the Lord if I am truly prepared to persevere to the end. I believe I am :) Taking every moment as its given, doubling my talents at every opportunity, and lifting one more spirit towards the love of the Lord.

Soeur Do and I were able to see Soeur Richardson and her parents while they were in Lyon!! It was so crazy! It feels like only yesterday I was talking to them on Skype Christmas day in an arab internet café, haha. They were so sweet! They left the institute in Lyon, and Soeur Do and I followed them... We almost ran after them to give Soeur Rich one last hug goodbye... but we decided that it wasnt right... then I said "There she goes."... a moment of silence. Then simultaniously Soeur Do and I began to sing "There She Goes... There she goes again!! ... Runnin through my head... and I cant ...(finish the song)." We were standing on the sidewalk in a busy French road, just singing. Lots of people walked by and gave us weird looks, hahahaha. IT WAS A REAL MOVIE MOMENT! I will never forget that moment, hahah. Thank you Soeur Do for making me feel like a celebrity ;)

The ceremony where we received our bleus was epic! Very fun... I was happy to receive Soeur Jacobsen, a cute little blondie from California! I would have been happy with any of the bleus!! They were all way cool. I really loved being able to see Soeur Everett who is finally back in the field after being at home, sick for about 6 months. I cried when I saw her... Dreams do come true :)
Otherwise, we had a pretty uneventful week!! We were able to see some less actives. We got to do two service projects for members!! That has never really happened before. Soeur Jacobsen is good luck I guess :) 

I was really happy to see Amandine after a long week. She is doing wonderfully and really loved coming to conference! Patrice also came with his cousin! YAY! Colette is in Toulouse... but she seems to be doing well. We are hoping to have a baptism the 8th of November and we are working our tails off to see it! But, we know it isnt possible without the Lord, so we set the goal to pray for our baptism in EVERY single prayer!! Please, keep us in your prayers. We also followed the example of our mission president and "rented" one of my missionary shirts in a covenant to the Lord that we would follow the commandments and give our all to His work here in Clermont!! Our own Title of Baptistry!! 

We spent basically all of the weekend with members and watching conference... It was such a joy!! I love conference. Saturday afternoon session was absolutely remarkable. Anderson. Callister. Holland. Klebingat. Abide with me Tis Eventide. I was so touched!!!!!! "I am not my brother's keeper, but I am my brother's brother." Remember to always be kind and considerate. We are here as the Lord's hands on earth. If we don't help and serve, how can we expect others to help and serve? I hear too many impatient, angry, and spiteful words. We must follow the example of the Savior. "It is much less important that we walk where Christ did, than that we walk AS He did." I thought of this statement and asked myself "Am I trying to be like Jesus? Am I following in His ways? Am I doing what He would do in every moment, and in every opportunity?" I am so grateful for a modern day prophet and for the apostles of the Lord. I know that the addresses given this weekend are the things God, our Heavenly Father, would want us to hear. As we treasure up His word and apply the teachings in our lives, we will find greater happiness and peace, and we will bless our brothers and sisters. In a world of hate and anger, let us try to be more loving and accepting and joyful. I know that as we do, the Lord will smile on us and help us along... I love Him. He loves you. I love you. Have a wonderful week :) 

Avec tout mon amour, 
Soeur Beeny
