Christ's Embrace

Last night I was so overcome with comfort and peace. I was having a rough day and missing David a lot. But then I started to think about how amazing it must have been for David to pass through the veil, to see Christ face to face and to reunite with our Grandparents and our little brother Spencer and all the other loved ones we miss so much. I will always ache. I will always feel a hole, a space where David should be. But, I know that the rest of me can be filled because of Christ's atoning sacrifice. He feels what I feel. He feels what my family feels. But, he suffered so that we can be whole. I am so grateful for that.In the October 2010 General Conference, Elder Gerrit W. Gong spoke about eternal families and he said,

"Sometimes things go wrong even though we have done our very best. A lamb innocent and pure, our Savior, weeps with us and for us. When we always remember Him, He can stand with us at all times and in all things and in all places that we may be in. His faithfulness is stronger than the cords of death."

David, I love you so much. Thank you for being such a good brother. See you soon.
