Eternal Ties

Tied to every moment of joy that I will know,
Is the King of all Kings who helped me to grow!
As I stand a queen with joy in the sky,
I will look in my heart and seeing know why.
There He will be in the center of my soul,
My beloved Redeemer who brought me to my goal!
In moments of fun in the laughter I share,
With each beat of my heart I will feel my Lord there!
As I create and love throughout eternity,
Each moment I experience my God gave to me!
The weight of my children and all I will hold,
Was won by my King who ransomed His fold!
Dancing and spinning my feet will declare,
My beloved Jehovah saved me with care!
Sharing and loving; my peace had a price,
Each day I live held by God's sacrifice!
Yes tied to my Lord is every joy that will be,
For He gave His life to cleanse and save me!

This is how I feel every single day! I am grateful for my King who has broken my chains and set me free! I smile, I hope, I live with joy because of the great atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ!

"What is it about true love that touches every heart? Why does the simple phrase “I love you” evoke such universal joy? Men give various reasons, but the real reason is that every person who comes to earth is a spirit son or daughter of God. Since all love emanates from God, we are born with the capacity and the desire to love and to be loved. One of the strongest connections we have with our premortal life is how much our Father and Jesus loved us and how much we loved Them. Even though a veil was drawn over our memory, whenever we sense true love, it awakens a longing that cannot be denied.Responding to true love is part of our very being. We innately desire to reconnect here with the love we felt there. Only as we feel God’s love and fill our hearts with His love can we be truly happy."

Quoting part of this beautiful talk is like giving you one bite of ice-cream, it simply wont do. I encourage each of you to dive into this inspired talk! Today for me is a day to celebrate true love! I am grateful for the true love of my Heavenly Father and Savior! I look into my heart and see the flame of hope and joy burning strongly because of the atonement of Jesus Christ. It is so beautiful to me to acknowledge that every single happily ever after that ever will be exists because of the great atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. His true love for us, made it possible for us to find true love and hold it eternally! I praise my King and Savior and thank Him for all He has won for me! I feel the words of Thomas S. Monson today, "the future is as bright as your faith." My faith is burning brightly and I see everything ahead of me with joy! I testify that this bright outlook is available to all. We can accept the gospel, repent, be baptized and then walk with fidelity and honor toward our King and all He offers us. I pray we will do so!:)

Today is really special to Breana and I. We self published our book God's Gifts and it is available on kindle through Amazon. This book is an expression of love to our Heavenly Father and Savior for all of the beautiful gifts of creation! It was so much fun to work on this book with Breana and we are excited to share it today July 14,2017! Yep we are marking the day!!!:):):)

By way of information about our book God's Gifts, Breana drew the blue eyed angel in the book to look like Miranda! This book is dedicated to our Miranda! She loved creation with all of her heart and her iPad is full of the proof. Almost every picture on her iPad is of an animal she loved and learned about. We are so grateful for the true love of Miranda! We are counting down the days until we see her again! Ich liebe dich!!!:):):)
