The Work of Creation

The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before.
Everyone can create. You don’t need money, position, or influence in order to create something of substance or beauty.
Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty
This is a quote from a talk giving by Elder Uchtdorf titled "Happiness, Your Heritage."  I think about it a lot.
The first photo is a train.
John also made the tie die socks that are in the second photo.
In the third photo, it started out looking like as a contemporary looking temple. then it morphed into this Incan structure.
The fourth is Margaret destroying.

I too think of that quote often. Usually pertaining to myself and other adults, but your pictures made me think of how it pertains to children. Such a good thing to keep in mind as a parent.
