What an Amazing Thought

My family really enjoyed listening to General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints this past weekend. Many of the talks touched our hearts in a way that we know Heavenly Father knows our family. That He knows what we need.

One of the talks that touched my heart tremendously was the one given by Elder Richard G. Scott. He mentioned revelation and inspiration. He talked about our loved ones that have passed away. That we are not separated from them. That we do not cease to love them. That we are associated with them with ties that cannot break.

He also says that those who have been faithful who have gone beyond are close to us. That they know us better than we know them, and that we live in their presence. That they see us and love us now more than ever. Their love for us must be greater than that which we feel for ourselves. Relationships can be strengthened through the veil with people we know and love. It is done by our determined effort to continually do what is right. We recognze that the separation is temporary and that the covenants made in the temple are eternal.

I can tell you that we have felt Laney here, near us. What Elder Scott talks about is right. And true. How grateful I am for Apostles on the earth to help us know the right way to live.

  1. Tina,
    We absolutely loved this talk also. This is hanging in J’s room “Do we realize that in our daily walk and work we are not alone, but that angels attend us wherever our duty causes us to go?….Our fathers and mothers, brothers, sisters, and friends who have passed away from this earth, having been faithful and worthy to enjoy these rights and privileges, may have a mission given them to visit their relatives and friends upon the earth again, bringing from the divine Presence messages of love, of warning, or reroof or instruction, to those whom they had learned to love in the flesh”. …James E. Talmage. Hugs! V.
