Strength and Love

We are strong.  There are physical ways we can show our strength. Exercise is important to me, but there are other ways that strength can be gained.

We show strength when we have a bad day and we get up the next day anyway.

When our children are sad and we give them an extra measure of love.
We show strength when we are mistreated and we don't retaliate. 

The strength that we have is not given to us to hide. 
We can share our strength when we help a stranger in need. 
We show strength when we share our trials with trusted friends. 

We show strength when we cry for another's sorrows.

We show strength when nothing seems to be going right and yet we still smile. 
We show strength when we give thanks for life despite our circumstances.

We show strength when we acknowledge the Lord's hand in our lives.

What is the most important feat of strength?  Loving each other.  None of us are perfect, but we all need love.

"Love is the very essence of the gospel, and Jesus Christ is our Exemplar."  Thomas S. Monson
How do you share/show your strength?
