Day 169, June 16

Today is our son Rob and his wife's first anniversary.  A year ago, they were sealed in the Bountiful Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for time and all eternity.  Mormons use that last phrase many times, but I wonder how many times we contemplate its true meaning.

"Time" indicates our span on this mortal sphere.  "All eternity" encompasses that and everything else.  Consider the infinite nature of "all eternity" and its implications, that we can be kings and queens, priests and priestesses in the life to come.  It's overwhelming, isn't it?

Larry and I are grateful that Rob found a beauitful and righteous woman to share his life, to take this mortal journey and the journey that will continue into the eons of time.  It's no secret that Rob grieved when his first wife abandoned him and his sons.  And so we give thanks that he and Jenny have found each other.

So, for today, I am grateful for the eternal union that Rob and Jenny and Brigham and Isaac chose to make.
