From the Mouths of Babes

The other day just out of the blue my three-year-old daughter said, "Mom...remember when you got married? I do because I was there. I was standing at the top of the stairs with Paisley and Gabe and Tatem and we were watching you down below."

I could not believe what I had just heard so I said, "Tell me more."

She went on, "We were in a big, tall, old building and everything inside was white. We were all wearing really nice clothes. Daddy's family from Germany was there and later everyone sat at some tables and ate food."

That was about all I got from her. She walked away and began to play with her toys. Later when I asked her about it again, she repeated everything.

It amazes me how thin the veil is for our children and how things that some adults struggle to believe all their life, comes very matter of fact to children. They just know.

I smile when I think about my children being a part of our wedding day, even though they were not here on the earth yet. Manuel and I had just made a very important covenant with our Heavenly Father which would seal our children to us for eternity as they would each be born into that covenant. They must have been so happy for us. We were taking the necessary steps so they could come into the world and perform their missions.

I love this gospel and I know that through the covenants we make in the temple, our families can be together forever. I say this in the name of Jesus Christ amen.
