Can you see the pain and sadness yet the serenity in the faces of our precious family who live so far away from us? Today was a tearful, sad day for our family as the teeny tiny body of our stillborn grandson was laid to rest. We do not fully understand why these things happen but they do and they have and they will for as long on this earth as we know from beginning to end.
We lost our own stillborn daughter many years ago and it is still as clear as though it were yesterday. That experience has taught me a lot about eternal life. I have come to believe and understand that these little ones have an ageless spirit and can be a part of our eternal family. The comforter was so strong that I could feel his arms around me and hear his voice whisper peace to my mind. I felt as though my heart was going to swell up and burst from my chest. My body was weak to the point of being bedridden and felt it would expire any minute from the loss of blood and the stress of delivery but my spirit was filled with light and power and all the troubles of the world could not invade my sanctuary. The love that filled my heart, mind and soul was a gift from my Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I knew more than ever of their existence and their purpose for this life.
We lived with our Heavenly Father before we were born on this earth and we can return to live with him again if we are worthy. With him... in his house... and with our families forever. There is power on this earth to seal families together. I am grateful for that priesthood power found in the restored gospel of Jesus Christ today.
