on love and loss

I attended the funeral of a wonderful woman from my ward last week. It was a beautiful service, and I left feeling uplifted, inspired, and grateful. This week, a good friend lost her brother unexpectedly. My heart breaks for her and her family. The older I get, the more tragedy I see, and sometimes it can feel like this life is too hard to bear. But we can take heart. Because our wise Heavenly Father has created a way back to Him, where we can be with our loved ones again. I know this is true, and that knowledge brings me comfort in the most difficult moments.

"Life is eternal; and love is immortal; and death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight."  Rossiter Worthington Raymond

I feel full of love today. I hope you do, too.


  1. i love that quote.

  2. It is hard to loose the ones in your life either friend or family. The older I get the more I friends I am loosing and I know my time is limited but I have faith and know that there is more than this life on earth. The quote is wonderful.
