Forget Me Not

This post is based on a talk called "Forget Me Not by Dieter F. Uchtdorf, General Relief Society Meeting, 2011." He explains a lot through the talk that it's the worth of reading the talk.
"A while ago I was walking through a beautiful garden with my wife and daughter. I marveled at the glory and beauty of God’s creation. And then I noticed, among all the glorious blooms, the tiniest flower. I knew the name of this flower because since I was a child I have had a tender connection to it. The flower is called forget-me-not.

I’m not exactly sure why this tiny flower has meant so much to me over the years. It does not attract immediate attention; it is easy to overlook among larger and more vibrant flowers; yet it is just as beautiful, with its rich colour that mirrors that of the bluest skies perhaps this is one reason why I like it so much.

And there is the haunting plea of its name. There is a German legend that just as God had finished naming all the plants, one was left unnamed. A tiny voice spoke out, “Forget me not, O Lord!” And God replied that this would be its name."

I loved when he mentioned, "Forget not to be patient with yourself. Forget not the difference between good and foolish sacrifices. Forget not to be happy now. Forget not the 'why' of the Gospel. Forget not that the Lord loves you."

I hope you have enjoyed reading of what I have shared with you. In your own time, you can read the talk. Here's the link below.

Stay Tuned until next time.
