Look Up Free Printable (Balloon)
FREE printable of an amazing quote from October 2011 General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This is from a talk by Carl B. Cook of the 70. He shared how when he was first called to the quorum of the 70, President Monson caught him in the elevator one day when he was looking down. He said, "It's better to look up," meaning toward God. Elder Cook said he was burdened and his head was down--That's what prophets do for us: they lead us to God.
He then shared a time he was visiting an area where they were discussing burdens. After the meeting, they each were given a balloon to signify a burden of their own. They let them go & watched them soar through the air. This part really touched me as I immediately thought of a group of people standing out letting their balloons go & all LOOKING UP with a sigh of relief as their burdens floated away, turning them over to the Lord.
Hopefully I'll have time to do a simpler version of President Monson's, "It's better to look up."
