My Day of Birth
Sunday was a phenomenal day. It had a wonderful start in which I got my patriarchal blessing. I knew as soon as the patriarch laid his hands on my head that this blessing was coming directly from the Lord. I felt his love course through me and the tears immediately started. After the first sentence I was so at peace and I thought that it could end right there and be sufficient for the rest of my life. I know that the Lord loves me and that was enough. But it didn't end there, and the rest of the blessing was just as direct, personal, and touching as the beginning. I am so grateful to this opportunity to have personal direction from the Lord for my life. There was a part in my blessing where the patriarch was talking about those on the other side of the veil. I don't exactly remember what he said but I remember feeling that Nana was there and Gordon and Craig and then my Grandpa Yorgason towards the end. I know that they were there sharing this special moment with me and letting me know that they were watching over me too. It was such an amazing experience and I wouldn't change it for the world. I love the Gospel so much and I am forever grateful for the Plan of Salvation that I can return again to live with God and my family. There isn't enough time on earth to spend time with my family now and I can only think that this feeling will be exponentially compounded once I have my own family here on earth.
