Thinking of Those Who Have Passed.

Just in the last couple of days I have been told of several people who have passed on suddenly.  The circumstances of all of them have left families who love them and will miss them terribly.  It has hurt my heart to think of those families without their loved ones.  I have reminded myself often of the Plan of Salvation and Heavenly Father's constant involvement in our lives.  With this knowledge it seems a little easier to understand how such wonderful people can be taken from us.  Easier to understand yes, but it still is hard.

Our home teacher came by yesterday and shared the message with us.  It was 'Hold On a Little Longer'.  Just when it seems that things can't possibly get worse we have to remember to endure faithfully.  Hold on for just a little while longer and the trials will pass,  we will find the happiness we seek.  I couldn't help thinking of the Davis family all throughout his message.  I hope that they can hold on a little longer.  Our prayers are with them and all those who have lost their loved ones recently.  We hope they will find the love and peace that our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have to offer. The gospel is such a blessing simply because of the knowledge it gives us.  We are truly grateful for it in our lives!
