Well tell Andi her favorite uncle said HI!!!!!!
Well this week was very hard.....
And... yes, I did go see a doctor to have an in-grown toe nail removed on my big toe on my right foot. And dad that is not major surgery!! haha
Well this week was a week to learn Charity and the true love of Christ in my life. Because it is easy to love people when they care about you, but when they don't treat you well at all and make you hurt real deep inside, it is very hard to do. We hurt Christ all the time when we mess up and don't listen to Him, and He still love's us. I mean He still love the people who crucified Him on the cross. He loves them so much He asked His father to “forgive them for they know not what they do”. So we need to learn to love people and hopefully one day we will have charity, because the people we show charity to are different when you love them. The Savior has a perfect love for everyone, we are still learning and will always be learning to love like the Savior does. Here is something I was reading on Charity...
"The Lord has identified some of the qualities of a charitable person. If we have charity, we rejoice not in iniquity, but in the truth. We bear all things, believe all things, hope all things, and endure all things. (See Moro. 7:45.) We forgive grudges and offenses, and we control our thoughts."(September 1991).
So to have what Christ had is very hard and we have to work all of our life to have the perfect love of Christ. I know Charity works and when you show it even when it is hard to do, in the hardest of times is when we grow most as a person. Opposition in life is not to make things harder all the time, cause when we face it the right way we will grow more like Christ. And that is our end goal in life is to become like Him. When things get hard that is when you need to push through and when we are close to quitting that is when we are so close to the finish line. And to us that might not seem close but it is in Christ time and that is not much time!
Well I love you all and hope you have a great week!!
