Where I’m At…Virtue

by Mrs. BWF on September 22, 2012

In backing off Facebook, I am giving more time to myself, my family and yes…my spirituality and faith. If you have followed me any length of time, you know that I am accepting of all and never push religion. However, in being honest about where I am at in life away from Facebook, here it is.

Today, among other things, I am preparing a talk for church tomorrow. My talk is based on VIRTUE. More specifically the last sentence of the 13th Article of Faith in my church. It goes:

“We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men, indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul. We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to e able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.”

Definitely not what the world is teaching us. I feel humble to be able to study and give a talk on this topic. I’m sure I have just as much, if not more, to learn from this than anyone who will be hearing the words I prepare.

These lessons and morals are important not just to us, but to teach our beautiful daughters and sons. To hope, to love, to do good…and to seek these things out.

You do what you need to do, Mrs. BWF. I’m so grateful for your presence both here and on FB! But I’m sure we all realize you’re a human being too; you need time for yourself, your family, and your beliefs. Good luck with that talk, and let us know how it goes. :)

What a beautiful sentiment! I love that that is part of the articles of faith at your church, and I appreciate the fact that you recognize your own shortcomings! Wishing you well during your talk!

I also try to be very respectful of people and their beliefs. I love hearing from people what they believe, even if it is different from what I know and believe. The only time it bothers me is when people are overly forceful in telling me “their side.” I have never found your site, or even this post to be forceful or offensive. I appreciate hearing such things.

good luck tomorrow. I agree with the previous comment, time away to care for ourselves and our families is important.
