Reverance is the key

Yesterday I had the opportunity to go and hear my mother give a talk in Sacrament Meeting. The topic that she was given was Reverance, and I am so grateful and blessed that I call her mother, she has been such a blessing in my life and so in tune with the spirit.

Here are some things that really struck home to me and that I want to share with you now

The temples and ordinances are a prime example of reverance, and the spirit of it that must be present. The Holy Spirit will become our constant companion as we have the Spirit of Reverance in our lives. Its a love of the deepest love we feel for our Heavenly Father and our Savior. Reverance is a attitude of the deepest respect and love of God and our Savior, Jesus Christ. Reverance is a attitude of the deepest respect and love of God and the Savior.  As we develop Reverence, we can better our lives and pattern them after our Savior, Jesus Christ. We must praise, revere and worship our Heavenly Father. Another way to learn Reverence is by the example of others. My mom shared this powerful story with us: ' Right before my father passed away, all of us, my husband and children, decided one Sunday to go and visit them for the day, and so we did, and it was a amazing visit, my father talked to each of his grandchildren about what was going on in their lives, and then he asked me to talk at his funeral, and at first I said 'no, your my father I can't do that', but he persisted until I said Yes, so I did, later we left them and headed home, and fifteen minutes later he passed away. At the viewing I had such a hard time and not knowing if I could still be able to speak at his funeral. As I went up to the podium to speak I could feel him right beside me with his arms around me and I knew everything would be alright and that he loves me' This is a powerful testament of the power and feeling of Reverance we may feel when someone we know and love passes away.
