Today at church in Sunday school we read in Alma about the resurrection. Now whenever I hear about the resurrection I get the feelings of hope, joy and extreme excitement. I also have a greater reverence for that most wonderful gift of the Savior. It is real to me now. I have always marveled at this most wonderful gift given to us and it's always been something special but now since Wyatt died it is so much more than that to me. As they discussed these verses in Sunday school with not to much feeling expressed I wanted to shout out how wonderful the resurrection is. It is so tangible to me now. It is the hope I get each day that I will have my Wyatt again. I couldn't shout out in Sunday school because I was trying not to cry.
As we read the verses something stuck out to me. Alma 11:45: ..."that they can die no more; their spirits united with their bodies never to be divided;" This wonderful truth tells me that I will never have to say goodbye to my Wyatt ever again. I will have him forever and ever and I will never have to see him go. I will have him throughout eternity never having to bid farewell. How grateful I am for my Savior, it is because of him that I have hope each day. It is because of him that Wyatt is saved and has made it to the celestial kingdom. It is because of him that Wyatt will be resurrected and I will get to hold him in my arms again and I will never have to let go. It is because of him that we can repent when we have done something wrong and we will be forgiven. It is because of him that we all will be resurrected and live forever. Oh, how grateful I am for my Savior more than I ever have been before!
