The spark of creation

As seen today on Blog Segullah, the following is a short video produced by lds.org, mixing the immeasurable words of President Uchtdorf with beautiful music and images.

It's inspiring and a wonderful reminder of the divine nature within each of us. I wish I created more. I write often, both here and in my daily journals (yes, there are two), but did you know I used to paint and draw? I wasn't particularly good, I'll leave that talent to my sister and aunt, but I still haven't cultivated it in years. I do have some sewing and crafting talent, and I've recently thought of several projects I want to do (some more utilitarian than others), but I'm probably not going to get to them before the sewing machine I have a love/hate relationship with moves to India (even I'm still the only one to have used it). Anyone have a sewing machine they want to give/sell me?

There are lots of things I like to create, and you probably feel the same way. I'd love to hear about those things. As Pres. Uchtdorf says, we all have the power to create. Every one of us.

Ha! I just finished blogging about my ho-hum response to that very talk! Don't get me wrong, it was a good talk, but it's something I've been saying for years. I just didn't have the same sized audience.

That's funny. It's not like it was new information me either. I just enjoyed the video and the highlighted words, the quote-worthy part.
