I love this picture of my wife. I took it on a vacation to Cancun several years ago. There is a look of joy on her face and it captures the fun and joy we had on that trip. I have to confess that there has been a lot of heartache and moments of turmoil and suffering that have taken place since that photo was taken. It reminds me that part of the value of those “Kodak Moments” (remember those ads) is being able to capture those moments that we too soon forget.
The happiness of vacation quickly returns to the drudgery of work.
For me this past week was one that I would like to have a picture of …
It was a Kodak Moment I would like to keep.
Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me. “Now my soul is troubled, and what shall I say? John 12:26-28
We like to forget that Jesus said this right before he headed to the cross. No wonder his heart was troubled. He knew that in choosing to live a life serving and following Christ there would be days and weeks of pain, trial, and suffering.
So, take pictures of the days of joy and victory.
