I am thankful for time and for eternity.
Time can be used wisely or wasted, but the reality is: time is limited.
A friend said farewell to their 7 week old son yesterday. He was born at 23 weeks gestation. They had 7 weeks when they should have only had 7 minutes. What a beautiful amount of time they had! And their strong faith assures them that he will be theirs for eternity, he will be waiting.
We are planning on visiting Utah for Christmas even though it will be hard on us to go. My oldest two don't see their father very often and he will be there when we are. Evey time they see him, I am so thankful that it was another happy memory as those are numbered. Their father has MS and it is only a matter of time until it turns visits into more painful ones and harder to cope with.
I was sealed to my husband for time and all eternity. I have time on this earth to live and love others, but will have eternity to spend with him and my children. All those that have gone on before are waiting for us. My little niece, my Mammaw, my Nana, everyone. And I am thankful for the eternity I shall have with them.
