It has been 14 months now without Russell by my side. I miss him deeply daily, actually hourly. Tears still flow for what we could be together on this Earthly journey, but I continue to feel the spirit whisper to me that he is on the Lord's Errand in a different way, in a new place. He is watchful over his family. I am so blessed and thankful for the Tender Mercies of the Lord that help me to know that I am loved and cared for in Russell's absence. I have amazing Family and Friends who watch over me, pray for me and give me love, love, love. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a constant to bring hope, comfort and love, clarity and joy. The scriptures, words of our Prophets and leaders. I love my Sunday meetings, the ability I have to serve in my calling. As our family grows with additional spirits arriving, I think of him kissing them holding them before they leave our heavenly home to join us here for their mortal experience. I am so grateful to have that special knowledge that we are Sealed together for our Eternity beyond this life. I count on it, thank my Father in Heaven for it, and thank my Russell for being the man of my dreams who was worthy to start our Eternity together in the Temple of the Lord. Then to lead our family in righteousness as he honored his Priesthood, and used its power to bless our family and those he served. It has made all the difference.
