I Can Only Imagine

I cry every single time I hear this song. I can only imagine what that day will be like when I get to see his little face again. I imagine being at Mesa Cemetery and looking over and seeing Shirrell and Tim holding little Brandon. Becky and Tommy holding beautiful DeLanee. Brenda and Larry embracing Kenny. Kari and Skylar and Debra and Landon and Blades, Cori, and baby Kyndal. I know that there are many more that I look forward to seeing on that day. My heart will burst for them because I know how happy they all are going to be! I want to be there that day!
So yes some days you really do not feel like taking one more step, you want to crawl into a hole and cry but, you can not, you have to keep going. I live so that one day I will be worthy of that day! I can only imagine what that day will be like for all of us! I will be there that day! So today I will get up and move because I will be one day closer to that day! One day closer to seeing all of my tears wiped away and only having pure joy!

I have thought about this day many times. I can picture all of us dressed in white. Your family, Will and his wife and children. Wayne, Trey, Jayden, and all of their spouse and children, and your grandchildren surrounding his grave when he is risen and put back into your arms. The angles will sing in praise, and rejoice. I know how I felt seeing all of my family in the temple when John and I were sealed so, yes I can only imagine how that day will be. I know that day will be wonderful. I pray that I will be worthy to be in attendance for such a reunion.

this makes me cry..this song and your words. I feel the same for you, when the day comes that I see you reunited with your Sage I will burst with joy as well. Words cant even express the glory that day will bring for so many!

This song was one played at Landons funeral.

my favorite line of that song is in the chorus.. " will i be able to speak at all" I dont think any of us will be speaking. I cant wait for that day! Each of us deserve it.. to hold our loved ones again.. for Debra to be with Landon..
I hope we will all be able to blog about it.. or take pictures.. cause its going to be great :) Maybe we will just be able to watch.. and all gather together and hug eachother..!!!
Thanks for your thoughtfulness Crystal!

I love this song too. I just cry when I think about that moment we have been promised...that wonderful reunion...we can only "imagine" that moment! It's overwhelming just thinking about it.

Oh Crystal. . .your timing is amazing. I've been out of town this past weekend. On the way home tonight, Tommy and I were talking about DeLanee and her upcoming birthday and how we seem to re-live all of the events leading up to her birth and death. I'm kind of an emotional wreck during this time of year and especially tonight (it's still 11 days away). I came to your blog for a little upliftment and inspiration and that is exactly what I got! Thank you so much for this song and your thoughtfulness. I cannot wait for this day! Sometimes it seems to take so long, but it will come and I am guessing that none of us that have angel babies above know how amazing it will be. But for tonight. . that is exactly what I'm going to do. . .imagine.
