"Real charity is not something you give away; it is something that you acquire and make a part of yourself. And when the virtue of charity becomes implanted in your heart, you are never the same again." -Marvin J. Ashton
Charity is the theme for camp today. I love how this quote describes the true essence of charity as not something you give, but something you actually acquire as a part of yourself, and your heart. I think that true charity is not an action, but an actual character trait. For my handout I found these really cute wedding bubbles in multiple colors that have a little "heart" handle, and wand. I made some little streamers with hearts on the end in coordinating colors, and attached the quote from Marvin J. Ashton. I also sprayed some glitter on the paper hearts! Glitter makes everything better!
I join the girls and other leaders tomorrow afternoon! I can't wait!
We've also had another mishap at our house. I've decided I'm just ready for this year to be over! My little cowgirl fell yesterday, and bashed her jaw hard on the edge of the counter. She scraped the heck out of it, and also is having pain when she moves it back and forth. I'm a little worried, and I can't decide whether I need to take her in or not. She can eat okay, but sometimes the pain gets a lot worse, and sometimes she says it feels lots better. Should I just give it a few days? Or should I take her in...just to be safe? We're self employed, and the medical bills are piling up! Not that that matters in the face of my children's health...it's just something I take into consideration now, when deciding whether to rush into the dr. or not!
