Consider the lilies

I finally got to listen to what Lynn was referring to re Brother Uchtdorf’s address.

He said we are all known and remembered to God, and offered the metaphor of the forget-me-not flower, his favorite: it is not tall, it is not as showy and splashy as some, it is a quiet little flower, down to earth, blooming quietly away at the job it does best. Five petals, plainspoken but with a beautiful color.


(Favorite old pictures of my own favorite flowers, showy and grandstanding and all.)

I particularly enjoyed the “eat the chocolate” part.

Consider the lilies – one of my favorite verses. A great reminder of the importance of each of us.

Happy Monday!

I, too, missed the talk and am hoping it will be published soon.
