"I Know That My Savior Loves Me" ~


 
 This sabbath day has been one of pure joy. We drove to Spokane, Washington to attend the Priesthood ordination of our Grandson Michael; who just turned twelve. This is our 4th grandson to receive the priesthood this year. Each of these ordinations have been sacred and sweet experiences. I will do a future blog post on these 4 special events. All four of these sweet young men have such a wonderful spirit about them. I know that our Heavenly Father is very pleased with their desire to serve him.

Michael was kidnapped out of Primary by the Deacon's quorum and then ordained by his father to the Aaronic Priest and to the office of a deacon.

Next week he will pass the sacrament with members of his Deacon's quorum for the first time.

We had the added joy of our daughter Tiffani singing in Sacrament meeting with her two daughters; They sang "Teach Me To Walk In The Light" and also;" I Know That My Savior Loves Me."

I wish we could have recorded this special minute of time. Both my husband and I could not stop the tears. Their voices blended together beautifully. My two granddaughters are ages 10 and 7 years old. It brought back sweet memories of my three daughters who have sang together many times through the years. They have beautiful voices and have enjoyed singing in trios together and also solo's. I myself would love the talent of singing. In fact it is probably the only thing I have actually coveted through the years. My dreams have been fulfilled through hearing their lovely voices. Perhaps sometime I can be part of a Celestial Choir; meanwhile I will enjoy the moments that I can hear all of their heavenly voices.
Below is rendition of the song they sang as found on you tube. I hope sometime they will make their own you tube presentation of their singing.

I'm not familiar with children being ordained, so I hope you will educate me a bit about this! I would like to know more. In any event, it sounds lovely and I can see that you are very proud.

You are a great example for me of a devoted grandparent. Thank you for showing what priorities are. I, too, wish I had the singing voice that my children have. But I have the privilege of being their "go to" accompanist.

Another wonderful perk of being a
grandparent...attending special events in the lives of grandchildren. What a special day to be there with your family and see your grandson receive the priesthood.He looks like such a nice young man. I love the song your daughter and grandchildren sang. I wish it could have been recorded so you could enjoy listening to it at your leisure. What wonderful memories you will all have of this special day. Nola

oh how I would love to hear your daughter and granddaughters sing. I can only imagine how special that would feel and how very special watching your grandsons being ordained to priests would be as well. I can only dream. We had a young lad ordained the other day that Todd and I have known since he was a baby. It was very special. We are so blessed in our church to have what we have. xxoo

You have a beautiful family, LeAnn. I, too, am envious of those with wonderful singing voices. My voice was passable when young, but not good enough for a solo! But as the years go by, I sound like a frog croaking!! LOL!! So I limit my singing to when I know I'm totally alone.

Grandparenting is a special blessing. It's so special that you are able to witness these occasions. I, too, missed out on the music talent but my children inherited it from their daddy. I love it when my daughter's family sings (parents and 3 children). I get a double blessing.

What a good looking boy Michael is. I so enjoyed reading about his "special day." I have to say, I cried because I remember so well when my only son, Rich, was ordained. Unfortunately Rich hasn't been active since he was 14 years old and went to live with his father. I was devastated and still am and he's 49 years old.

The singing also reminded me of my three daughters who used to sing duets in church. I told them I wanted them to sing at my funeral and they refused because they said they wouldn't be able to get a note out. I too wish I had a recording of them because they live some distances from each other and don't often get together at the same time.

What a wonderful day it must have been for you.

Sounds wonderful! Family is the best.

And I never realized what a great missionary tool your blog is. Thanks for sharing.
