I have always heard this, and had moments in my life that affirmed it, but about three months ago I got to get a glimpse of what it will be like. For the first time ever, my entire family was in the temple together. My parents, bro, sis, and bro-in-law. When I walked into the celestial room, my mom was waiting for me and she was the first person I saw. And then the rest of my family came and greeted me. It was so joyful! And I knew that when I die, I will be greeted in heaven the same way. It was a glimpse into the eternities.
The knowledge of eternal families is amazing. I am so happy to know that death isn't forever, but just a small moment and while we may grieve now, we know we will be together again.
|My forever family!|
(None of us realized until after we looked at the pictures that we had failed to get one that included bro-in-law. Sorry bro-in-law! We still consider you part of our family!
