Unassuming Seeds

“This is a package of Edelweiss seed. The seeds are tiny, like small dry flecks of pepper. But on the face of the package is pictured what they might become—the mature plant, the flower that grows high in the Swiss and Austrian Alps, that weathers the storms that rage through those mountains, that blooms beneath the snow, that gives beauty to Alpine slopes and meadows. These tiny seeds have within them the potential for vigorous and beautiful life. They have become the symbol of a sturdy people—‘small and white, clean and bright,’ blessing a great land forever.” —President Gordon B. Hinckley, “Watch the Switches in Your Life,” general conference, October 1972


The Bouquet of God’s Love

“The resplendent bouquet of God’s love—including eternal life—includes blessings for which we must qualify, not entitlements to be expected unworthily. Sinners cannot bend His will to theirs and require Him to bless them in sin. If they desire to enjoy every bloom in His beautiful bouquet, they must repent.”—President Russell M. Nelson, “Divine Love,” Ensign, February 2003
