A friend of mine sent me this aweswome Quote and it hits Charity right on the head:D haha that sounds funny. Its the perfect quote for this blog:D Thankyou Lindsay P.:D Shes just a rad person and mother.
"Perhaps the greatest charity comes when we are kind to each other, when we don't judge or categorize someone else, when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt or remain quiet. Charity is accepting someone's differences, weaknesses, and shortcomings; having patience with someone who has let us down; or resisting the impulse to become offended when someone doesn't handle something the way we might have hoped. Charity is refusing to take advantage of another's weakness and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us. Charity is expecting the best of each other" - Marvin J. Ashton
Oh the wisdom in having Charity. The world will be so nice when we are all filled with this kind of love:D. Cant wait. We are all working on it now in our own ways. Praying for it...listening for the promptings...studying and so on but wont it be so nice when we dont have the temptations anymore when we have finally all been filled with this kind of accepting unconditional rational love:D..so I know you love me and you know I love you and we all just SEE eachother:D...sometimes I think really seeing someone is the same as loving them. To see and know they are daughters and sons of the same guy we are a daughter or son of. Seriously if we all saw eachother I think we would be a lot nicer:D...lol...Oh boy...it will be so nice right. I know I feel like that some of the time and im not saying i dont want to work on it im just saying im gunna bask in the the glory baby...bask.:D..mmmmmmglory...mmmmmmmlove....mmmmmcheetoes...huh? hahah ...love Mandy

14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
I can move a mountain but if I dont have charity all the faith in the world means nothing. I love how the two commandments are both about Love. Love God and love your neighbor. If I put love above all things then everything else will fall into place. I wonder though. If you need faith and hope and meekness and lowlines of heart to have Charity and the only way to go about getting it is by searching out these things or can you pray for it and have it. I think there are moments where I have felt real charity. and it was beautiful. It is a constant struggle to keep that frame of mind. To put love above irritation with my kids. To put love above my pride. To see someone or a situation that i dont agree with in the light of love. It is not easy but...its seems that when I am full of love it is easy. K does that even make sense? its like running I think kinda. Like when you have eaten the right foods and practiced and drank enough it is easier to run the race. hmm dont know just kinda thinking out loud here. maybe its more like ooooh i dont know...haha. i have a crying zion here:D...gotta run.
