 Happy Birthday (Yesterday) Relief Society!

This is part of the Inspirational Message I'm giving tonight at our Ward's R.S. B-day Party.

“I consider charity—or ‘the pure love of Christ’—to be the opposite of criticism and judging.” Thomas S. Monson

"Charity manifests itself when we are tolerant of others and lenient toward their actions, the kind of charity that forgives, the kind of charity that is patient.  Charity impels us to be sympathetic, compassionate, and merciful, not only in times of sickness and affliction and distress but also in times of weakness or error on the part of other. True Charity is love in action. The need for charity is everywhere.”    Thomas S. Monson

"Charity is having patience with someone who has let us down.  It is resisting the impulse to become offended easily.  It is accepting weaknesses and shortcomings.  It is accepting people as they truly are.  It is looking beyond physical appearances to attributes that will not dim through time.  It is resisting the impulse to categorize others.” Thomas S. Monson

I took my inspiration from Daughters In My Kingdom: The History of the Relief Society Chapter 6 A Worldwide Circle of Sisterhood.

Happy birthday Relief Society.  Thanks for everything everywhere.
