Uplifting Thoughts: Grow Through the Cracks


Lately, I have been feeling the need to write down my impressions and uplifting thoughts and record them. Elder Richard G. Scott said: "Inspiration carefully recorded shows God his communications are sacred to us. Recording will also enhance our ability to recall revelation."  I discovered this week in the new Gospel "Living" App a place to easily record impressions but thought I should share some here, as this platform is one I refer back to often & keep for my kids. 

This month I have been noticing so many plants growing out of the sidewalks and walls, places of seemingly no soil or place to take root. I have started to notice these phenomenons literally all over, and something I started to watch for on my runs. So many wild flowers and weeds growing out of walls on buildings and up through sidewalks in the most unlikely places through the city.   

It's been feeling like Heavenly Father is trying to demonstrate and show me beauty and growth can pull through less than ideal circumstances and is better and stronger and more magnificent though it. I don't think I would have noticed or paid much attention to this same flower at all if it was planted across the way in a flower pot. 

I can't help but think of this year 2020 feeling like a new batch of heavy cement sidewalk spread out smothering my good soil and plans. Lots of feelings of being trapped and lack of sunshine.

Feeling the need to keep rooted, hold on, and push through. Eventually we will pull though, slip through the cracks, and see that sunshine that has been overhead the whole time.  

Decided to go for a little morning walk through the neighborhood to take a picture of a flower growing through cracks and the rest of the family decided to join. A few more pictures from the walk :)
