So, I'm sitting here at the Corner Bakery in Valencia. Sean is doing his music thing, and I decided to come over to Corner Bakery to get some school work done. But of course our laptop only has like 30 min. of juice left! So, I'm blogging instead until it dies.
When I was first trying to connect to the Internet, 3 guys were sitting about 10 feet away from me. They looked homeless, but I'm pretty sure they weren't. I think they are just "modern" hippies because I heard one talking about this music festival they are going to. The have their dirty sleeping bags, and dirty faces, and my first reaction was to think,"ewww....so gross." Then I had to stop myself. Who am I to judge these people? I don't know them or their story. How can I judge them, when people still judge me and even judge my husband for the color of his skin.
Speaking of Sean getting judged, while we were in the Cancun airport, Sean and I were walking around smelling all the perfume and cologne in one of the airport stores. Next thing we know, all the workers in the store and the security guards are withen about 10 feet of us and they are watching and following us!! Making sure we were not stealing!! I know it was because Sean was black. All I could think was...."are you kidding me! Sean is a returned missionary and a primary teacher!!! He's the last person that would steal!"
It's a sad thing when people assume things about a person that they do not know. The only thing that matters is that Heavenly Father knows every single person. He knows what each person is going through. He loves EVERY SINGLE person on this earth. Even if they are a gang member, a killer, a thief, doesn't matter, he still loves them. They are his children and our brothers and sisters. And even though I sometimes too judge unfairly, I try to remind myself that they are one of Heavenly Fathers children. And even if they aren't living maybe how our Heavenly Father wants, he is still their Father and he always has hope that they will change. Thats why he created the Atonement and had our Savior carry it out. So, I hope that everyone will remember to not judge unfairly and know that Heavenly Father loves us all!
