Yesterday our dear friend's daughter lost her unborn baby boy. Little Payton would have been born in just 6 weeks time. Our hearts are saddened today, but we find comfort in knowing and understanding that through the Gospel Of Jesus Christ, Families can be together forever.

Do you know who you are, little child of mine,
So precious and dear to me?
Do you know you are a part of a great design
That is vast as eternity? …
Do you know you’re a child of God?
Do you sometimes review how He took your hand and placed it within my own, saying here is a Child from angel land not a gift but a precious loan.
Do you know where you’re going, child of mine?
Are your eyes on the road ahead?
Do the spires of his castle gleam and shine
Where the sun grows golden red? … You will make it, my child, I know.
(Ora Pate Stewart, “To a Child”.)

This made me cry. It would be so hard for me to loose a child. So too hard. I can loose a house but a child is so hard. I am so grateful for the knowledge that my family will be always together.
So grateful for Temple sealings.
XOXO
