It's a Sad Day

It's a very sad day at our house today.  A loved one, my husbands aunt, has passed away.  We will all miss her dearly.  I am so incredibly grateful for the knowledge I have that we can see her again someday and that she is now free from pain.  Love you Carol.
What Is This Thing That Men Call Death?
What is this thing that men call death?
This quiet passing in the night?

‘Tis not the end but genesis

Of better worlds and greater light
O God, touch Thou my aching heart
And calm my troubled, haunting fears

Let hope and faith, transcendent, pure

Give strength and peace beyond my tears.

There is no death, but only change
With recompense for vict’ry won

The gift of Him who loved all men

The Son of God, the Holy One.

“I recognize that, on occasion, some of our most fervent prayers may seem to go unanswered. We wonder, ‘Why?’ I know that feeling! I know the fears and tears of such moments. But I also know that our prayers are never ignored. Our faith is never unappreciated. I know that an all-wise Heavenly Father’s perspective is much broader than is ours. While we know of our mortal problems and pain, He knows of our immortal progress and potential. If we pray to know His will and submit ourselves to it with patience and courage, heavenly healing can take place in His own way and time.”
—Russell M. Nelson, “Jesus Christ—the Master Healer,” Ensign, Nov. 2005
