I had the chance to attend the General Relief Society Broadcast at our Stake Center this past Saturday. I'm not usually one to attend Relief Society meetings (I feel so young), but I was so glad I did. I got to be around very good friends and eat some amazing breads, cheeses, and spreads. We had a musical performance before the talks that was phenomenal! And the talks were great, especially President Monson. He has such a way with words. A way to brighten the room. He spoke on judgment and started with this story. You can watch the broadcast here.
"I begin with a short anecdote which illustrates the point I would like to make. A young couple, Lisa and John, moved into a new neighborhood. One morning while they were eating breakfast, Lisa looked out the window and watched her next door neighbor hanging up her wash. "That wash is not clean!", Lisa exclaimed. "Our neighbor doesn't know how to get clothes clean." John looked on but remained silent. Every time her neighbor would hang up her wash to dry, Lisa would make the same comments. A few weeks later Lisa was surprised to glance out her window to see a nice, clean wash hanging in her neighbor's yard. She said to her husband, "Look John, she's finally learned how to wash correctly. I wonder how she did it". John replied, "Well Dear, I have the answer for you. You'll be interested to know that I got up early this morning and washed our windows".
