Creative People

Creative people drive me crazy! I try so hard not to be envious or covetous or jealous or any of those other sinful things that say that I want what they have, but creative people make if difficult. For instance, I went to a great Relief Society meeting on Tuesday that was presented by creative people. The lessons were amazing! The decorations were phenomenal! The food was fantastic!
I didn't take notes and wish I had. I was telling Ronald darling about them and reminded him that they never do anything like this in priesthood meetings. Only the sisters get the really good stuff!
I loved all of the lessons; growing closer to the Lord, building our relationships and being empathetic and charitable. The sweetness and humility of the instructors was a great example.
But who thinks up this stuff? The theme was mall shopping, a natural for most women, and the lessons were about all the things you can't buy - they're priceless.
Thanx to all of the sisters who planned the meeting, decorated the rooms, taught the lessons, prepared the food, made all of the handouts and let their creativity shine!
Here is a picture of someone else's creativity, don't know where it came from. I would never have thought of it, but some of you will do it. Let me know when you do.

You know I love to make cakes and play with icing! I will have to send you a picture if I ever do this. =) I know what you mean about feelings of jealousy or covetousness. You know, I feel like I am creative, and I have those feelings towards women who are just that much more creative or have an idea better than mine. I wish I didn't, but I do. And here I am, planning to make this way cute cupcake to show everyone I can do it. Well, I do enjoy playing with icing so that's not the only reason. I wish I could figure this whole thing out. Tell me if you have any insights into this.
