This song is from one of my earliest memories. I remember sitting in my dark bedroom with my little brother Clay and my Dad, our faces lit up by the glow of the computer screen. My Dad had a genealogy program, and one of the options let you play that song with the words. It was a simple one sound, electronic melody, and we sang along together. At such a young age I knew that the words to that song were true:
I have a family here on Earth,
they are so good to me.
I want to share my life with them
through all Eternity.
Families can be together forever,
through Heavenly Father's Plan.
I always want to be with my own family,
and the Lord has show me how I can.
The Lord has shown me how I can.
Tonight, in my daughter's room, that feeling hasn't changed. I know our family is forever.
This testimony reminder came on a day that was special for another reason- our friends Brady and Angie Draper blessed their baby boy, Ryder W. Draper, in Sacrament Meeting. It was the most tender of blessings, not a dry eye in the room. He is a very special little boy, and he is in a very special family. We are all so thankful for eternal families today.
