My heart is full...

As I was scanning pictures on my computer I came across this photo. To some this picture may not mean much, but when I see this photo my heart is full.

In the back ground of this photo is the temple in Washington DC, which we were sealed as a family. The sealing that took place gives us the opportunity to be a family forever.

A week ago my brother passed away unexpectedly. Now the sealing power of the priesthood means so much more. The opportunity to be a forever family is a wonderful gift that I could not be more grateful for.

I have had to lean on the knowledge of the gospel, the comforter (Holy Ghost), and the love of our Father in Heaven a lot these past couple of days. I miss my brother, more than words can describe. Though, I smile knowing that he lived a great life, was loved by many and has now gone on to serve the Lord again.

Until we meet again!

Kimberly! I had no idea. I simply adored Eric! I'm so sorry. But how reassuring it is that God has a plan for all of us. It is through this sealing power within his Holy House that binds us forever. Your positive outlook is indeed inspiring. We should talk soon! I love you!!!!
