Forget Not...

Pin It

Nope, I couldn't wait to come home and make this little reminder for myself!

"Forget Not" by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf and other great talks from tonight's General Relief Society Meeting can be watched again...and again...here.

I'm going to print this off and stick this on my fridge!

  3. Thanks for the cute reminder. I loved that talk and I have always loved Forget Me Not flowers in the spring time. Forget Me Not's have always reminded me of Jesus Christ because they bloom during Easter and the name has made me remember Him. I love that this little flower now has new meaning. I can't wait for next weekend. I love listening to our Prophet and Apostles.

  9. Love this! I just need to tell you that tonight during the closing hymn, there was a phrase that reminded me of your blog and the impact it has on so many of the woman. (I can't remember the phrase right now though, sorry) A few years back I had a very special experience while attending the temple. There was a specific moment when one of he temple workers, an incredible woman, came up to me and asked if I ever wanted to see angels. I was slightly startled by her question. Where that would be an incredible event, I certainly did not feel prepared in any way for such an experience, regardless of where I was at that moment. Anyway, after asking my that question, and without missing a beat she took me by the shoulder and told me to turn around and look. As I did, I saw exactly what she was seeing, who she was seeing. There in that sacred Temple were dozens of beautiful men and women dressed in white all there in the service of the Lord, doing work for those who cannot do it for themselves. No, they were not the angels that would first come to mind, but to the men and women whom they were serving they were angels. Ministering angels are not just those dressed in bright white, but as latter day prophets have taught, the can be anyone who is lifting the hands that hang down, serving a neighbor, nurturing a child, caring for the sick, even sharing a simple smile. I suddenly felt so close to that amazing temple worker, as well as each sister in that room. That day I did see angels united in the service of their God. Tonight, as I looked at the congregation, I saw thousands of angels brought together in unity and in love. Then I was kind of bummed that, though we are all sisters in Zion, they were all nameless (nameless to me because I don't know them) faces on that screen. But then I realized that it is incredibly possible that through your blog and facebook page, I could have interacted with many of them, and they could have interacted with each other, sharing ideas, giving support, counsel, advise, etc. It's so hard to put what I felt and realized during the broadcast into words, but seriously, do you realize just how incredible your blog is in bringing together, on a more personal basis, hundreds if not thousands (if not more) of woman from all over the world? Technology is incredible! Thank you for the strength, encouragement, ideas, and light that you bring to so many, and by so doing, allowing others to do the same. You are an angel!

  19. Just wanted to thank you for the cute reminder of President Uchtdorf's talk. It has so much meaning to so many, in so many ways. My husband brought breakfast to me this morning while I am on the computer. I had told him so much about the talk and how touching and true it all is. When he came back to get my empty plate he had a square of ghiradelli chocolate in his hand. How greatful I am to be reminded of the important things in life.
