As I contemplated this morning's events, the lyrics of a primary song came to mind:
I know that through the temples families can be together forever. I know I am sealed to my family for eternity and that if I live worthy of it, I can live with them forever after this life. I do not know what would have happened to me if not for this gospel. It helps me know what to do and how to live my life. I am so grateful to this gospel and for my Savior. I am so grateful for the blessings I have been given: for a wonderful family, for a chance to further my education, for music, for friends, for great roommates, for all the modern technology I enjoy, and so much more. I know that God lives and that He loves each and every person on this earth equally. The rain falls on everyone equally and the sun shines for everyone equally. He loves everyone and asks all to "Come Follow Him." I know I want to. He is "the light and the life" and makes my burdens light and I thank Him for that.
