Day 272, September 29

Yesterday I wrote about the talk of a woman who spoke of what she wanted her granddaughters to know. At the same conference was another speaker who began his talk with a story about forget-me-not flowers. He compared them to the more stately rose and exotic orchid, saying that forget-me-nots were humble flowers, but beautiful in their own right.
He then gave five lessons he wanted his listeners to remember:
Forget not to be patient with yourself.
Forget not the difference between good sacrifices and foolish ones.
Forget not to be happy now.
Forget not the why of what you do.
Forget not that the Lord loves you.
So, for today, I am grateful for lessons from a forget-me-not.

  1. Such a good talk. He had me laughing on the foolish sacrifices, and crying with love and gratitude to remember that the Lord loves me. Since I have trouble in each of these areas, it felt like he was speaking directly to me. I'm so grateful for pure truth and an inspired perspective.
