Precious Moments

There are some moments in life that are so precious and so sacred that human language cannot describe, nor the human soul fully comprehend the divinity that exists within them. No masterful poet could pen, nor gifted orator express words that would truly capture the spirit that is present in moments like these. It is a gift-- given from a loving Father to his children-- to spark their souls with a remembrance of where they have come from and where they are going. Some leave this earth without ever experiencing it, while others are blessed to receive it in small increments, in quiet moments, in times of great sadness and exquisite joy.
My family and I were blessed with such a sacred opportunity this past weekend. My mother and 12 of her 13 children were able to join Kirk and his family in his hospital room in Kentucky. He shared his beautiful testimony of the Savior with us. We were privileged to be present for tender blessings he gave to his children and his wife. We hugged, we cried, and we experienced a magnificent outpouring of love from our Father in Heaven. He loves us enough to allow us these opportunities, these hardships, these trials, these glimpses into heaven.

Thank you Kirk, for being willing to endure this trail for the many who have and will be blessed by your spirit. I am so grateful that through you, I could draw close to my Savior. I will never forget the precious moments we spent these past few days. I pray there are more of these moments for you and your family in the coming days before you make your journey home.

It is truly an honor to be your sister.
