I don't know how to find the right words. How do you accurately describe what you want to whisper to each person you love, and shout from every mountaintop?
The warmth. The knowledge. The tears.
Any combination of letters I put together, it just won't be enough.
It's so easy to get caught up in life, the everyday things. Stress, obligations, bills, the constant needs of my family, and so much more. Always vying for a place. And so often there is not enough room.
But today, especially today, I closed my mind just a little.......I let a few things go. I took that space that I always keep open for Him and let it fill.
My cup runneth over.
My friends, my family, my readers. By now I hope you know me fairly well. Silly, insecure, fun, a good person. (and if you don't think those things you probably already unsubscribed ;) But this is something I have to share. It is such an important part of who I am.
I know that I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father (God). I know that He loves me, more than I could ever ever imagine. I know that I lived with Him and His Son, Jesus Christ, before I was born. I was born to wonderful parents on this earth. I know that life here on earth is a test, and that how I live my life will determine whether I can live with my family, my Heavenly Father and my Savior, Jesus Christ again.
I am very very far from perfect. But the Savior died for me, and all of us. He paid the price so that we can repent and become perfect.
I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church. I believe that there is truth in all churches that believe in Christ. But they are missing a few elements that were part of the Gospel that Christ set when he was here on the earth. And those have been restored. I know that there is a living Prophet today that leads and guides Christ's church in His name. His name is Thomas S. Monson.
I know that my family will be together forever. Today at church I was able to hear both of my parents testify of what they believe. I know that I have been blessed beyond measure. I know that I am loved, unconditionally, more than I could ever imagine.
I believe and know a lot of things. And even without the right words, I could go on and on...
But I will use the words of this song to try to express how I feel, today.
I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me.
Confused at the grace that so fully He proffers me.
I tremble to know that for me He was crucified.
That for me a sinner He suffered He bled and died.
Oh it is wonderful that He should care for me enough to die for me.
Oh it is wonderful, wonderful to me.
Caution! Sharp curve ahead...
