  1. “It’s not happiness, for that is only momentary.  This Joy, it’s
    everlasting.  It is only found in one place — in the presence of the
    Lord, in the arms of the Everlasting Father.” You NAILED it Barbie. I want to write more but am too teary to do so. Your sweet tribute has greatly touched my heart. Thank you for that … and for such a blessing you are to the blog community at large. I do not get over here nearly as often as I’d like to, but when I do, I am always richly blessed, and the sweet comments you leave for me are blessings as well. Hugs to you.
