This weekend, as we listened to General Conference, several messages touched my heart, but none quite like this one:
"Remember, as you attended the funeral of your loved one, the feelings in your heart as you drove away from the cemetery, and looked back to see that solitary casket, wondering if your heart would break?...
"I testify that, because of Him, even our Savior, Jesus Christ, those feelings of sorrow, loneliness and despair will one day be swallowed up in a fullness of joy."
Elder Shayne M. Bowen
In my journey with Annie, I have become acquainted with sorrow, loneliness and even, (during her last few weeks with us) despair. There are no words to describe how anxious I am to experience the fullness of joy that will one day be mine when I have this angel back in my arms again, and our family is finally and forever together.
I'll be missing her till then.
