what thinks Christ of me? ...

i was reflecting today during the sacrament about what had i done in the past week that was Christlike.  there was plenty i had done that was not, but at this particular time, i was desperately trying to focus on the good!  the scripture in luke came to my mind and i was reminded that asking is praying sincerely, seeking is studying the scriptures so i can know His will, and knocking is the doing ... the intent to act when i the receive answers i seek.

i am serving a mission for the church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints because i asked to know His will for me and He answered.  everyday i go forward with a leap of faith and hope that i am doing what i need to do to help build His kingdom here on earth.  i feel His love every day, even when i fail (probably more so!).  i am growing in ways i never expected, but at the same time, i feel i'm not doing all i can do to maximize my learning time here.  so the question i ask myself is 'what thinks Christ of me?'.  

am i serving my fellowman with a pure purpose?  am i working to develop Christlike attributes so i can show and feel more charity toward others?  what would He have be do today to help lift someone else?  

i am loving my time here in the philippines.  the people are fantastic!  and while life goes happily and busily on back home without us, i wouldn't trade this experience.  am so grateful i am here with diane.  it has been easier than i ever thought it would be and i'm sure she is a large part of making it seem that way.  it's impossible to comprehend but our eighteen months here is more than half over.  i want to make the most of every day we have left!  sending much love your way!  donna
