The day after Sage passed away this is the video we watched over and over again. I bought the DVD with this slide show on it. This song was sang at his funeral. This song brings me comfort and strength everyday. This video helps me see the BIGGER picture. To know that because of my loving Savior Jesus Christ, I can be with Sage again. I look forward to that day everyday. Learning to be patient is the hardest part of all of this. I want the grieving to be over, the sadness, the pain, the hurt, and the anger. I know that one day all of this will be taken from me and I will feel overwhelming happiness and peace. Patience is what I pray for everyday. Not in my time but the Lords time. Until then, somehow I have to learn to carry on and find joy in the journey I have ahead of me. Sage is only missing from time and not Eternity. I look forward to Eternity each day!
Come, thou Fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing thy grace; streams of mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise. Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above. Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it, mount of thy redeeming love.
2. Here I raise mine Ebenezer; hither by thy help I'm come; and I hope, by thy good pleasure, safely to arrive at home. Jesus sought me when a stranger, wandering from the fold of God; he, to rescue me from danger, interposed his precious blood.
3. O to grace how great a debtor daily I'm constrained to be! Let thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to thee. Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love; here's my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above.
My favorite line is "Here's my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above.
I tell myself that God gave my children many gifts - spirit, beauty, intelligence, the capacity to make friends and to inspire respect. There is only one gift he held back - length of life. ` Rose Kennedy

What We Believe
A Single Life
By Greg Olson
"Making the decision to have a child-it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." -Elizabeth Stone
The Prophet Joseph Smith States
"The Lord takes many away even in infancy, that they may escape the envy of man, and the sorrows and evils of this present world; they were to pure, to lovely, to live on earth; therefore if rightly considered, instead of mourning we have reason to rejoice as they are delivered from evil, and we shall soon have them again."
He further explained:
"All children are redeemed by the Blood of Jesus Christ, and the moment that children leave this world, they are taken to the bosom of Abraham."
"Time Heals All Wounds"
It has been said, "Time Heals all wounds." I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone. `Rose Kennedy

Something To Think About
A wife who loses a husband is called a widow. A husband who loses a wife is called a widower. A child who loses his parents is called an orphan. But...there is no word for a parent who loses a child, that's how awful the loss is! - Neugeboren 1976, 154
