* Howe Pumpkin 2009 *
I thought this one turned out pretty good - recognizable objects (those two people are me and Dave), nothing propped up with toothpicks, and I did it in under an hour!
The inspiring influence of the Holy Spirit can be overcome or masked by strong emotions, such as anger, hate, passion, fear, or pride. When such influences are present it's like trying to savor the delicate flavor of a grape while eating a jalapeño pepper. Both flavors are present, but one completely overpowers the other. In like manner, strong emotions overcome the delicate promptings of the Holy Spirit.
- Elder Richard G. Scott
I immediately let go of my jalapeño emotions and tried to spend the rest of my weekend as a grape. As a result, I enjoyed Conference very much.
