Yesterday our son Hyrum was sealed for all time and eternity to his sweetheart in the Denver Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. For Mormon families, having a child sealed to his or her eternal partner is a pinnacle.
Hyrum and Cara made promises and convenants, both with each other and with the Lord. Could there be anything more important? These promises and convenants are only the beginning, for these newlyweds will experience joys they cannot imagine. They will also be tested in ways they cannot imagine. Both are part of this mortal existence. Because they have been sealed together by Priesthood authority, they will emerge stronger and the better for it ... if they cling to each other and to the Lord.
So, for today, I am grateful for the sealing powers of the temple.
