I was reading an article in the Ensign by Elder Bednar, talking specifically about techonology and its uses of good and bad. I usually blog only about the fun things we do and not enough about special experiences that I have that may help and strengthen others faith.
Today started out like any other typical day off work that I have, cleaning, exercising, and errands. I almost forgot it had been four months since my daddy left us until my sister reminded me over the phone. I thought this was a good sign that I hadn't been counting the weeks, waking up every Monday morning and replaying that devastating day minute by minute, hour by hour over in my mind.
As I was driving home this evening listening to music, nothing particularly spiritual, an overwhelming feeling came over me that I would see my dad again someday. I felt him sitting in the car with me and I could literally feel his arms wrapped around me. The tears began to flow,I know this to be true. I have a testimony of my Savior, of His atonement and the plan of salvation. I know that we will be together again. I cannot wait for my dad to take me into his arms and hold me tight. I know my dad is watching over me and is with me. I am so thankful for a loving Heavenly Father and Savior who knows me personally. I am so thankful for this experience that I had. I feel like my spirituality has suffered in the past few weeks, I have felt empty because I have not felt my dad's presence or Heavenly Father's love as much as I had when tragedy struck. I am so thankful to know neither one has left me.
