One of the hardest lessons for me was "giving thanks in all things". I was inactive in church after a divorce and bitter at a man who held the Priesthood could cheat on me and a Bishop who I felt was not understanding my pain, wanting me to forgive and stay with my husband. Years later my 20 year old only son was killed and I was in more pain than ever before in life. I wept and begged the Lord to help me endure. Then came to me "in all things". HOW ????? But it was wanting to be with my son again that brought me back to full membership! The truth of "families are forever" became so strong I knew I could at last be sealed to me son forever and that was the blessing in all things. I have been sealed to him. Praise a loving Father for the perfect plan of happiness.
Sister Isaacson, I’m always impressed with the way you can share what you’ve learned with us. I’m grateful for you. If possible, I wish you’d look up a song by Laura Story called, “Blessings.” It portrays what you’ve written in a beautiful way. Thank you again for sharing. You’re making a difference; you’re making Zion.
