Peace

Because of a recent sealing and a family member's endowment session, I have had the privilege of being in the Salt Lake City Temple twice within the last 7 days, on two separate trips. More than ever, I look forward to the blessing of having a temple in our own city. I testify, that the temple IS in fact, the House of the Lord, wherein we may find the peace and priesthood ordinances that save. This tender mercy of knowledge has buoyed me through difficult times recently, and I thank my Father in Heaven for His Holy Temples.

"The blessings of the temple become most meaningful when our loved ones are taken in death from our family circles. To know that our period of separation is but temporary provides peace that passes ordinary understanding. 29 President Joseph Fielding Smith (1876–1972) wrote, “Through the power of this priesthood which Elijah bestowed, husband and wife may be sealed, or married for eternity; children may be sealed to their parents for eternity; thus the family is made eternal, and death does not separate the members.” 30 Blessed with eternal sealings, we can face death as a necessary component of God’s great plan of happiness."

Because of this promise, Noah will be sealed for all Eternity and I will in fact be reunited with my grandparents and so will Megan to her dear parents. What comfort this gives....the blessings of the Temple.
