I just wanted to share something I learned at church today. We had a wonderful lesson by Felice Clements about Forget-Me-Nots. We talked about Gods love and how we are never forgotten by the One who created us. That at times we may feel forgotten or lonely but He never abandons us. All I could think of was when I had come to one of many cross roads in my life. When I had the opportunity to be angry with the Lord and my life but I didn't. I remember holding our first little girl Eden in my arms and only feeling an out pouring of love and peace. Love for me and my husband and a very special love for our little Eden. I remembered the words of the priesthood blessing the I received. The Lord loved me and my family very much and that he was proud of me. I remember the feelings of hope when I was reminded that my family was sealed in the Temple of the Lord for time and all eternity and that our family would be blessed. Its easy to forget the grace and love of our Heavenly Father in times of loss and sorrow and well everyday life. We get caught up in the day to day and we get ungrateful. We ask why me or why do they get "it" and I don't. Its not about the why its about the who. He loves us and wants us to be happy. If we put our faith in the Lord he will bless us and though we may have trials he never forgets us. Sometimes being a stay at home mom and getting suck inside all day gets to me and I feel a little forgotten but I was reminded today that I am not forgotten that I am loved. Thank you Felice for such a special lesson. I know most of my posts are about my children. About the losses and the joys but sometimes things in life change you and I can't help but reflect on the most powerful experiences of my life to draw out meaning. Sorry if its getting old or if your like get over it already. Its part of who I am and I am grateful to have been so richly blessed in the love of the Lord.
