sacred sabbaths: blessing

May 16, 2011

Last night, my husband laid his hands on my head and gave me a blessing. For those of you not familiar with our faith, we believe the Priesthood of God has been restored and worthy men are ordained to hold the Priesthood and are instructed to use it to bless the lives of God’s children.

It is much too precious to share, but I wanted to write down my thoughts and feelings so I will always remember them.

What a glorious experience! I came away knowing God loves me and feeling an overwhelming gratitude for that love. I am so, so thankful for the atonement of my Savior. I am so grateful for the opportunity to repent and be forgiven. I am grateful for truth. I am grateful for guidance from a loving Father above. I am grateful for the words that were spoken and how they pierced my heart with their power. I am grateful for dear friends who loved me enough to come and be with me.

I want to bask in this feeling for the rest of my life…but I know it will dim and I will forget the tenderness of my feelings at this time. So I am sharing them here so I have a record to read again and again…to remember the love my God has for me.
