Sewing Divine Seeds

You can count the seeds in an apple but you can't count the apples in a seed.

I love this quote I found on sugardoodle.net for a little speaking assignment in Young Women's on Sunday about our divine nature and the joy of being a women in all phases of our lives. Women are given great gifts and talents. So I did some reading and was reminded of why I love my life.
" One of your unique, precious, and sublime gifts is your femininity, with its natural grace, goodness, and divinity. Femininity is not just lipstick, stylish hairdos, and trendy clothes. It is the divine adornment of humanity. It finds expression in your qualities of your capacity to love, your spirituality, delicacy, radiance, sensitivity, creativity, charm, graciousness, gentleness, dignity, and quiet strength. It is manifest differently in each girl or woman, but each of you possesses it. Femininity is part of your inner beauty." Pres. Faust
At times in my youth I was worried about my future and happiness. But I dreamed and prayed. I came to know that my future was bright. Not that everything that has happened was what I hoped for or planned. But I didn't compromise my standards. I lived as though to know what the Lord's will was for me. I've had peace and joy and much happiness.
